THE PRO'S TAKE
The K2 Poacher freestyle ski was a surprising standout at our ski test. The Poacher offered our skiers a pleasant blend of playfulness found in freeride skis with a locked in feel on hardpack when taken on steeps. This ski feels at home all over the mountain whether it is bombing down groomers or hitting kickers!
A favorite among K2's freestyle athletes, the Poacher is a common sight atop X Games and Dew Tour podiums. Though most of its screentime comes from major contests, this park ski is burly enough to dominate even the heaviest of late-night street sessions. Built with our Carbon Boost Construction and a Fir/Aspen wood core, these skis deliver tons of pop off the lip and the stability you need to stomp those deep landings. These Poachers are loved by freestyle athletes like Joss Christensen, Colby Stevenson, and Ferdinand Dahl.
