Read the Review Transcript: Hi, this is Hans. I just came off the K2 Annex 98. The Annex 98 is a great ski for your average intermediate level skier. I give it a 4 out of 5 for that particular type skier. It doesn't have that much of a rebound but it holds really solid in long turns. It's a ski you can take pretty much anywhere you want to go so it's your one-time quiver ski that will do anything you want to do.
