After a closer look at the playmaker it is easy to see how this ski can be utilized in an array of snow conditions. The rocker profile and relatively short turning radius allow for quick and precise short-radius turns that can be completed with ease on piste and in choppy conditions. Off piste, the Playmaker provides ample floatation and can power through soft snow without issue. On the groomers, the Playmaker had a surprising amount of grip underfoot. The tails were incredibly easy to release and smear without making the skis feel too forgiving in harder carves.
