The 2014 Governor is running for office on a whole new platform. Reshaped with a shorter sidecut, a narrower tip, and a longer running length, the new Guv is more nimble in tight terrain while retaining the straightline stability needed for choppy runouts. Front Rocker and a stiff aspen/ash core keep it rock solid in crud and chatter-free on hardpack. Take it out for a test drive, and the Governor's manageable nature might surprise you. Try pushing it to the limit, however, and you'll soon understand: it doesn't have one. The ultimate choice for aggressive big-mountain charging, this ski will tackle the most challenging lines on your list, point 'em out the bottom, and ask if you have anything tougher.
