    The big-mountain pow benchmark.

    A pow-crushing, pillow-stomping, big-mountain gun, Armada's Magic J Ski is Tanner Hall's powder ski of choice for obvious reasons. By beefing up the dimensions of the JJ from chubby to full-on fat and moving the contact point forward, you get the same ease of turning and high-speed stability of the JJ, but in a stabler throttle-pinching platform that's able to handle the ultra-deep days, pants-soiling lines, and, "there's only one way to find out," pillows like it's no big deal.

    Equipped with an EST Freeride Rocker profile (a rockered tip and tail with regular camber underfoot), these bad boys allow for fast, sweeping turns down big lines in blower pow and occasional patches of unexpected mixed snow. Armada built the Magic J on a Hybrid Ultralight wood core, which provides stability along with pop, and laminated it with a series of fiberglass layers to keep it stiff and chargy when other skis would be in danger of folding up.

    Like all Armada's big-mountain boards, the Magic J is finished off with AR50 sandwich sidewall construction, which employs sidewalls underfoot and cap construction in the extremities for a feel that's edgy and stiff where you need it but jibby and smooth where you don't, so you can count on a predictable feel when you're charging down floaty pillow lines, in variable snow, or through tight 'n' techy spots. In addition, you'll be grateful for the lightweight, strong 1.7mm edges that have been heat treated for durability and 50/50 bases that offer a just-right blend of speed and durability.

    Greatest ski's of all time

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After a 25 day season including Chugash Heli, Japan resort pow and touring, Japan ice, Austria ice, groomers and backcountry, I now know why they call them Magic. They float in pow and ski big AK lines magnificently; they turn on a dime in deep trees and can even be fun on groomers and not bad in mogul fields. I've been an Armada fan for a long time, but these babies take it to a whole new level.

    Great Ski

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm a PNW skier, 5-7, 160 lbs. I have these mounted with Dynafit Radicals and have toured them about 10 days so far. No resort riding days.

    After trying a couple different skis (Surface New Life, Line Opus) for touring the past few years, I got these for this season, and i'm completely sold. They are a perfect flex for my size, pretty stiff but not overwhelmingly so. The camber underfoot is great for traction on the uphill, and on icy ski outs to the car. In good snow, though, they are very stable and fun to ski. i have sen them off some moderate pillows and drops, and they are easy to stomp. They are also very light for how big they are, noticeably lighter than either the Lines or the Surfaces.

    Game Changer - most fun ski!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Tanner Hall was right, these skis have changed the game. I just spent 6 days at Snowbird after they received 40+ inches and these skis can rip the entire mountain. For a ski that is supper wide, they are actually very nimble and responsive. Unbelievable float in powder due to the rocker. Stable shredding big turns in bowls and quick enough to zip through tight trees. By far the best ski that I've ridden. I loved the JJs and 4frnt CRJs, but this is now my new favorite! So playful they turn the whole mountain into a playground that one can tear up with ease.

    Rip in pow, fun and playful

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These skis are fun AF. While they aren't the fattest skis they float awesome with the early rise. Also they do pretty well on the groomers as well as long as it isn't bullet proof. They take tight turns well, but are happiest slashing big GS turns in untracked snow. Great ski to add to the quiver.

    Are these running short? I'm 6' tall, around 200 lb. should I go with 180 or 190 as advanced skier
