Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This ski shines in the pow. The Reflect Tech, which is where 4FRNT matches the rocker radius to the sidecut radius of 35 m, makes this ski surprisingly nimble edge to edge with no tip hook. It rails like a fully cambered ski. The stiffer flex makes it super stable at speed and the tapered tip and tail allow the ski to transition smoothly from a carve to a smear. The limited edition BC.com co-lab art guarantee you'll be one of only a handful of rippers on this ski.

If you're looking for a mid-fat all mountain ski, the Cody is it. Whether you're on the east or west coast the 4FRNT Cody slays. It can lay a smooth carve on the groomers, hangs in the park and shreds light pow with ease. Had a blast on these at Aspen on a variable day last year. It's super playful and responsive edge to edge. The rocker and tip and tail taper make it smeary and buttery when you want it.

If you're looking for a versatile ski that rips deep pow and big lines, look no further than the 4FRNT Renegade. I was blown away at the performance of this ski. It's most at home in the deep stuff but can handle groomers and crud better than any fully rockered ski I've ever been on. The reflect tech where the rocker radius matches the side cut radius, allow the ski to transition super well from slarving to carving. Lay it on edge and it lays trenches like a GS ski. The maple/poplar core give it a nice stiff flex for excellent stability. Plus they make it in the good ole US of A, down the road from bc.com out of the White Room, 4FRNT's in-house production and R&D facility. Hoji was on to something with this one.

These were my first ever 4frnt's and won't be the last. I've had the 06/07s for the last couple years and they've held up amazingly. Standout characteristics are the skis lightness, non-existent swing weight and responsiveness. Super fun on groomers and bumps as well. Great all-around ski for someone who doesn't get a ton of pow days a season.

I'm rocking the 180 length and absolutely love it. With its near true-center midsole, it rides switch just as well as forward. Definitely a stiffer park ski with tons of pop for blasting the pipe. It's super fast, light and responsive. No wet noodle here.
