2015 K2 Remedy 102 ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s All-Mountain Back Category.

“This ski is more buttery than others in the category,” says Van Riper. “You don’t feel the tip like hard-charging skis, but it’s light and easy to maneuver.” The twin-tip Remedy 102 has a rockered, blunt-shaped, tapered tip and tail, designed for maneuverability and flotation. The core includes K2’s BioFlex3, which blends lightweight paulownia wood in the tip and tail and strong aspen wood underfoot. K2’s TwinTech sidewall-protecting technique rolls the topsheet into the sidewall. The Remedy 102 attained near equal high scores for versatility and float. “Maybe too soft for the hardest chargers, but this ski is eager to play in most snow conditions and terrain,” says Johnson.
