The new K2 Pinnacle 88 is a lightweight, very versatile ski for the strong intermediate to expert skier that will be spending most of their time on the groomers, but will head off trail into the off piste terrain from time to time. An 88mm waist floats in light powder, pounds through the bumps, and carves nice and smooth turns on the frontside. K2's Fir-Nanolite Core uses wood and low-density aerospace grade composites that run right through the middle of the ski for a very low swingweight. All-Terrain Rocker uses rocker in the tip and tail for extra flotation, vibration absorption, and easy turning, especially when you want to make zipper tight turns down a bump field. Taper in the tip and tail prevent you from getting caught up in deep snow for the occasional powder day.

Hi I'm Steve, I just got off the Pinnacle 88. I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. Really nice ski for big wide open turns, when I put it on edge at high speed it held its edge really great. Very quick edge to edge if you're looking for quick, sharp turns I wouldn't recommend this one, I would go down to the Iconic 85 but if you like the longer, wider radius turns this is perfect. I would really recommend this for someone who has been on a system ski and is ready to graduate over maybe to a flat ski, it's a little wider, a litle better for big mountain out west type skiing. It's a really easy, fun ski. Definitely something that would range from an advanced intermediate to an advanced level skier with no problem.

Hey I'm Paulie, and I just skied the K2 Pinnacle 88. I give this ski a 3 out of 5 star rating. This is a ski that would be good for an intermediate skier that wanted to venture off the groomed trails and maybe get into a little deeper snow, ski some trees, some crud. It's cambered underfoot but it doesn't carve really well on the front side. It would be a good ski for somebody who didn't like to ski super fast and make a lot of turns but wanted to get into some different kind of snow conditions. Maybe learn how to ski powder a little bit? 3 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Adam, and I was just skiing on the K2 Pinnacle 88. I give this ski 3.5 out of 5 stars. I didn't find it the most stable at high speeds and long turns, but in short turns and really quick turns and moderate to fast speed its was pretty exciting and fun. 88mm at the waist and it has a lot of rocker in the tip and a fair amount of rocker in the tail; it's really easy to maneuver in both short and medium radius turns, through a little bit of variable snow. It's not the most grippy on the hardest of ice but it's really easy to ski. I definitely thinks that it makes a great ski for that solid intermediate all the way up to advanced skier that's a little bit on the lighter weight side. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Thom, I just got off of the K2 Pinnacle 88 I'm going to give this 3 out of 5 stars. Where this ski is going to be best suited is for that lighter weight intermediate to advanced skier. It gets a little flappy in the tip, especially for a heavier skier at higher speeds so this is definitely going to excel for a lighter weight skier who as a little bit more finesse oriented. Great in short and medium turn shapes but its got enough width that it's going to be versatile, it's going to be a ski that is most at home on the front side but you can take in a little bit of crud and light bumps and stuff like that and it's still going to perform. 3 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Steve and I just got off the K2 Pinnacle 88. I give these skis 3 out of 5 stars. I think where they really excel are in slower long turns, they are pretty responsive; but at high speeds they get a little chattery, they don't do very well in the crud. I think they will also excel in smaller bumps for lighter weight skiers. I give them 3 out of 5 stars.

Q: I'm looking for a new telemark ski. Currently I'm on the K2 Annex 98 with 22Design Axl bindings and Scarpa T1 boots. I ski the Northeast in all conditions. I like the Annex but would like to move down a waist width and get something that will perform a little better on hard snow and chopped up crud and turn a little tighter. How would this handle as an east coast telemark one quiver ski? Is there something else I should be considering (Rossignol E88 maybe)?

Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:The Pinnacle series in general is a more refined, lighter version of the Annex. If you really enjoyed your 98's you are going to get a similar feel here, but with reduced weight and increased quickness edge to edge. Given the tip shape of the Pinnacle 88 it is a ski that translates well to telemark turns as well. I ski like the E88 does well as an all mountain ski for alpine skiers, but the tip has a pretty aggressive profile for telemark turns, unless you are looking for a ski to rip on groomers and not travel off trail too often.
