    Manufacturer's Description

    The J Skis Allplay is a 98-millimeter waisted do-all trick stick. If there were a category called Funskiing, these would be at the top of the list.

    Jason Levinthal is the Willy Wonka of the ski industry. The founder and owner of J Skis has a million ideas, works at an alarming rate, and is a bit crazy. One thing I know for sure is that he understands his customers and what they want. That’s what comes with over two decades of award-winning ski design. When he creates a ski for a particular skier it usually ends up in a two thumbs up scenario. He is so confident in his product that he offers a 100-percent satisfaction guarantee attached to all his skis. He builds his skis in Canada, just a short drive from his house in Burlington, so he can keep a watchful eye on the entire process.

    All of J Skis, including the Allplay, are built with strong maple cores. He uses the thickest edges and most durable base materials in the game. The AllPlay has a rockered tip and tail that are milled thin to provide the ultimate butter stick. The softer tips and tails, married with a mounting point four centimeters back from center, mean the skier on board should view the entire mountain as a park. I promise this ski will hit every Jersey booter you can find and by the end of the day you will have a high score in the game of Tranny Finder.

    The one downfall would be when things get big. Whether it’s the mountains, snow, or jumps, I would be a little concerned about stability. In the three years the J Skis Allplay has been in J’s lineup, it has had 15 different graphics. Levinthal is working at the speed of the internet and when he wants to create a new graphic, he simply does just that. There are no trips to Germany and Japan to see what their markets think of a color, name, or graphic. J skips the long and painful roads that most other major brands must go down. So a word to the wise, if you don’t like the graphics he has available at any given time, just wait a couple months and he will come out with another one. Some loyal J customers even buy multiple pairs and collect them like baseball cards. —Ryan Rubino

    Masterblaster

    $666.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    The J Skis Masterblaster is made with a maple core sandwiched between two sheets of Titanal, making it an incredibly damp ride. The sidecut matches the rocker profile, which means it has a long effective edge. Top that off with durability in the form of full sidewalls and an extra thick base, and the Masterblaster is the definition of an all-mountain ski.

    When I hopped on the Masterblaster at Powder Week, it was immediately clear that I was the one driving. This ski is easy to control and steer. It whips around turns fast, or it can hold a long, fast edge. (That effective edge also means it skis long for its size.) It’ll stay glued to the ground, but it can also catch air and smear. Some skiers may find the speed limit on the Masterblaster, but the majority of us will enjoy many days and many seasons on this ski. Which shouldn’t be a surprise.

    Jason Levinthal, the founder of J Skis, has been making skis for more than 20 years. When he designs a ski, he designs it specifically with a skier in mind. In this case, the Masterblaster is for the inbounds resort skier who likes to bang out top-to-bottom laps covering the gamut of bumps, chalk, pow, corn, and corduroy. They like to ski fast, but also to pop off a feature or two and have fun in the park. Wherever they go, the J Skis Masterblaster will keep up. —Julie Brown

    The Friend

    $749.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    I skied the J Skis The Friend in a variety of terrain where it performed admirably. The Friend’s construction incorporates a rubber laminate layer that is paired with carbon fiber stringers. These design features help to give The Friend a surprising amount of pop and energy. The ski’s waist width and rocker profile were the perfect combination for making aggressive big turns through soft/mixed snow conditions.

    Although the skis aren’t completely one dimensional, they thrive in the wide-open, bowl-type environments. When the terrain levels up, the skis become a little more difficult to manage. Its 115-millimeter waist feels slightly clumsy in tight trees, and in more complex situations they aren’t the easiest to maneuver around natural obstacles. On groomers, The Friend comfortably initiated turns and felt stable enough while carving at high speed.

    These powder boards were more than adequate when faced with hard pack snow. The Friend wants to live in wide-open terrain, however, and dominate big deep turns. It is exactly what you want on a powder day: a trusted companion with a bond of mutual affection for the steep and deep. —Eric Gerrmann

    The Metal

    $699.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    Knowing J Skis as a freestyle-focused brand, I was both intrigued and skeptical about The Metal. Having been focused on freestyle for many years, I have deep respect for J, what he strives to create, and the market he shows love for. That said, I don’t usually see freestyle-oriented skis with metal in them. It turns out, he’s on to something.

    The Metal has a very thin, narrower sheet of titanium alloy (Titanal) on top of the core, filling about half the width of the ski. The titanal layer in The Metal is about half as thick as in most other skis. Because of this thinner sheet, and its narrower width, The Metal is a really nice blend between strong and playful. It’s easy to ski, and performed really well in the chalk, hardpack, and especially bumps. It’s jibby and playful, and I had a great time pressing around on the tips and tails while skiing at Big Sky. Another thing I love about The Metal is the way the rocker profile matches the sidecut so the entire ski is engaged when I put it on edge.

    My only complaint about the ski is that I felt the turn radius was a bit too short. They wanted me to make quicker turns than I was ready for and didn’t love to be opened up at high speeds.

    The Metal is quick, fun, and playful, but not demanding. The young jibber in all of us will love the tail that lets you carve switch, and the flex that’s oh-so-fun to butter around, but it has much more to offer for most skiers. The Metal isn’t just a freestyle specific ski; it’s an easy-to-ski, fun ripper, perfect all day, every day on the West Coast for the majority of skiers. —Spencer Harkins

    The Masterblaster “Scavenger”

    $666.00

    Manufacturer's Description

    The Masterblaster has a shorter tail, gaining it 5cm more effective edge length under foot so the 181cm grips like a 186cm. It’s unique subtle rocker geometry perfectly matches the sidecut geometry enabling the entire rockered tip to engage. Olympic racer Jack Hammer said, “This ski’s got race-like precision on groomers, and when I drop into tight trees, the rocker makes it effortless to surf and pivot on a dime!”
