Technical info:
Scott tend to make constructions out of the ordinary, and the Punisher is no exception. The front and back ski have only got a 10 meter turning radius, while the waist is completely straight. This gives a carve turn with point pressure. It has a powerful rocker in the tip, so the sidecut is mostly located in the part of the skis that are lifted above the ground when you're not on the edges.

On snow:
The Punisher is the ski that receives the most varied and critical comments from the test team. It performs best in ungroomed snow, but scores poorly on stability at speed and it is a challenge to carve with on groomed slopes. Once you get to know it, however, it is possible to have a good time with the Scott Punisher, but this is not a ski we recommend considering all the skis you can find on the market nowadays.
