4FRNT Skis Click Ski 4FRNT Skis Click Ski
Every once in a while, everything comes together and that cork seven feels as easy as falling asleep. That's the sort of feeling the 4FRNT Click Ski specializes in, so it's a perfect park, pipe, and urban tool for anyone looking to take their game up a level or two. It's extra light, thanks to a Hyper-Lite poplar core and a cap construction, so you can trick everyone into thinking you're rocking the newest anti-gravity boots when you're boosting like a legend, and it has a swing weight that's more finely balanced than a 100-year-old-bottle of French wine. The design's pure classic, with traditional camber for edge grip and confidence on sketchy in-runs and takeoffs, and the traditional contact points provide a ton of effective edge so you don't wash out and go over the lip face first. 4FRNT also gave the Click a soft, supple flex that's more buttery than a dairy farm so you can smear off rollers, handle transitions of all shapes, and shred park and urban obstacles like there's no tomorrow.

4FRNT Skis WISE Ski 4FRNT Skis WISE Ski
If you hit the pipe like David Wise, or at least dream about throwing down Wisean tricks on the regular, his Wise pro model ski from 4FRNT is a tool that's too ill to pass up. A full-on freestyle ski with a ton of camber for boosting 20 feet out of the pipe, the Wise features a stiff and poppy maple core sandwiched between two layers of fiberglass, so you can rally hard into big hits and not worry that you won't have the hangtime to pull that double around to your feet.The camber provides plenty of edge bite to take the sketchiness out of bulletproof pipe walls, and the semi-cap construction helps keep weight down--the Wise weighs just seven pounds in a 177cm length--without sacrificing durability or hold. 4FRNT also hooked the core up with its signature Vibe Veil vibration-dampening laminate for a smooth, chatter-free ride, and hand-built the Wise in its legendary White Room factory in Salt Lake City, so you can rest assured that it won't disintegrate after a few sessions of serious stomping.

Amplid Infrablack Ski Amplid Infrablack Ski
We all need a pair of sendin' sticks, and there aren't many better than the Amplid Infrablack Ski. A legend that took a five year hiatus to recharge its batteries before returning triumphantly last year, the Infrablack continues the better-than-ever reputation last year's reintroduction established with a smooth, floaty tip rocker, powerful flat tail, and a lightweight but seriously burly core. As the dimensions make clear, the Infrablack's a big-mountain pow ski made to shred deep AK lines and stomp BC pillows at high speeds, but a pow ski can't afford to be a dead, damp missile. To avoid that, Amplid built the Infrablack on its Lite wood core complete with Hex02 windows, which pairs heavier wood at the tips with featherweight recycled paper honeycomb everywhere else for impressively low weight on a ski this burly. The burliness comes when Amplid wraps the core in its Full Carbon Jacket, lending big-send stiffness without weight. It also laid down a pre-stretched fiberglass laminate to give the ski torsional stiffness and stability that won't fade over the seasons. You don't want to feel unstable or squirrely when you're punching big straightlines or airs, so Amplid designed the Infrablack with a stiff, flat tail that lets you finish turns and stomp cliffs without feeling like it might be the last thing you ever do. Roundtop sidewalls wrap the topsheet over the edge for increased durability and edging power, and the Infrablack's tapered Flotation tips reduce swing weight and increase nimbleness by removing excess material from the tip, which also creates a smoother flex and better turning in soft snow. Amplid also used its famed Jekyll & Hyde geometry to shape the ski, maximizing surface area and effective edge without making the Infrablack feel like a huge and unwieldy set of planks, and Amplid didn't forget a big ol' sidecut to keep it stable at face-melting speeds.

Amplid Syntax Ski Amplid Syntax Ski
Park skis have to take a beating--rails, icy landings, and heavy crashes aren't exactly gentle on equipment--but they also have to be light enough to turn 1080s into 1260s and double corks into triple corks. Amplid's Syntax Ski manages to balance durability, lightness, and pop, making it a weapon of choice for athletes and video stars alike. Amplid trusts its snappy Helio P15 Ultralight wood core to bring lively energy through the body of the ski, but it replaces the material with a Hex02 wood core at the tips and tails. This mysterious material, made with recycled paper honeycomb, makes swing weight and chatter on hardpack all but disappear. Over the top of the ski, a pre-stretched Hex Mat fiberglass laminate further adds responsiveness and snap that won't fade with use over the years. The Syntax's Pop Camber shape brings serious energy to the ski, so you can boost to the moon and hold a solid edge when you're heading into icy takeoffs. Amplid made sure the sintered base was fast as lightning, so you don't end up knuckling when you were planning on stomping.

Atomic Infamous Ski Atomic Infamous Ski
Nobody ever earned a reputation because they were goody good two-shoes full of pleases and thank-yous. You get known by doing your own thing, throwing up two fingers to the haters, and stomping the bejeezus out of your next cork 12 on the Atomic Infamous Ski. The brainchild of Jossi Wells, the Infamous is all about doing things its own way, with a soft flex and more rocker in the tip and tail than its brother, the Punx. The upshot is that you can get as loose, buttery, and creative as you want while you're boosting off the super-poppy wood core and rugged Step Down 2. 0 sidewalls. The smooth, rockered tip and tail lets you butter and schmear like a bagel shop, while the Stomp Sidecut (bigger radius at the tip and tail) means you won't hook up an edge to easily or wash out on a landing. You'll still be able to carve hard into pipe walls and takeoffs, though, with plenty of camber underfoot, so you won't find yourself sliding off a step-up head first.

Atomic Punx Ski Atomic Punx Ski
Feeling like a little jibby badassery' Draw some sweet fake tats on your neck, stuff some M80s into your pockets, and take the Atomic Punx Ski out for some park, pipe, and urban shenanigans. The Punx is Atomic's flagship freestyle plank, ridden by fellows like Gus Kenworthy, so you know the early rise of the catch-free and butter-friendly Park Rocker is legit, while the bite of the cambered section lets you rally into icy takeoffs with serious confidence.With a smaller turning radius in the tips and tails (Atomic calls it Stomp Sidecut), the Punx won't hook up and wash out on landings, and the Step Down 2. 0 construction employs sidewalls underfoot for bomber edging. A half-cap construction in the tip and tail gives a smooth, tranny-finding feel, light swing weight, and buttery smoothness. The Resist 2. 2mm steel edges won't blow out on rails or serious heavy-head stomps, either. Atomic built the Punx with a super-poppy wood core to give you the boost you need to get rowdy and made the ski perfectly symmetrical, so you'll be able to ride switch as smoothly as you ride facing forwards.

The Atomic Vantage 85 CTI Ski has a need for speed.

Atomic's Firewall construction puts stout sidewalls throughout the ski, making the ski stable by its very nature. A titanium laminate combined with a Atomic's Carbon Tank Mesh layer, make them stiff and stable when you open it up down uncrowded groomers first thing in the morning.

Black Crows Atris Skis Black Crows Atris Skis
Destined to be one of the most versatile skis in the Black Crows lineup, the Atris was made in the image of versatility. If you're trying to buy only one new set of planks to get you through this season, pull the trigger on the Atrix already. Its moderately sized waist, double rocker profile, and flex that's soft enough to surf and smear your way through the deep days, but still stiff enough to charge between storm systems, will playfully see you through a season without leaving much to be desired. The Atris' 108mm waist falls in the sweet spot for everyday boards, offering plenty of float for the storm days that deliver knee-deep powder, rather than chest-deep goods. You'll want a fatter ski for the few days when the snow gods really smile down on you, but the Atris' width and rocker profile will keep it afloat in most soft tree lines and above-the-lift bowls. Plus, this versatile shape and width means that on the other side of storm days, you can still slice through days-old chop and jump onto the occasional groomer without your tips folding over and giving up. The Atris' semi-cap construction comes with a top sheet that rolls over the edges for increased durability, and Black Crows wisely adds powerful ABS sidewalls to keep the skis from chattering around underfoot at speed. A light and nimble poplar wood core encourages the Atris' playful behavior, while triaxial and biaxial fiberglass laminates keep the ski torsionally stiff when you're rolling it over from edge to edge. If you usually avoid a double rockered ski due to the risk of tail wash, don't discount the Atris on principle alone. A progressive rockered profile gives it float at the tips and stability underfoot, and the tips themselves raise only slightly off the snow, meaning they're less likely to dance around behind you while you're trying to arc a clean turn.

Black Crows Camox Ski Black Crows Camox Ski
We all have our white whale, yours is just bigger, whiter, and snowier than most--we're talking about mountains, by the way. Based in Chamonix, Black Crows shares your obsession with skiing every day and it knows that means having a harpoon in your quiver that will pierce everything from groomers and bumps to the hardpack and slush you'll encounter off-piste on any given day. If the mountain is your white whale, consider the Camox Ski the vessel by which you'll slay that big white beast.The Camox's midfat waist, semi-cap construction and progressive Double Rocker profile lends itself well to all-mountain slaying. 97mm underfoot is narrow enough to roll edge-to-edge on groomers, but plenty wide enough to hold its own off-piste on harder, days-old snow. Camber underfoot and tip and tail rocker make the ski stable, yet playful whether you're carving down the frontside, or skiing chalky chutes on the backside. If you're familiar with the Black Crows lineup, then you'll recognize a lot of similarities between the Camox and the Atris. In fact, the Camox is a scaled-down version of the Atris with playful poplar core and carbon, KEVLAR stringers to stiffen the ski up. Like the Atris, the semi-cap construction consists of rigid ABS sidewalls underfoot that taper into a cap construction in the tip and tail for reduced swing weight, as well as a slightly more forgiving feel, which is good when you're skiing in conditions that will swallow you whole if you mess up.

Black Crows Captis Ski Black Crows Captis Ski
For skiers that don't need two feet of pow to have a good time, the Black Crows Captis Ski makes the most of any condition with a super versatile midfat waist and playful rocker profile that will smear turns and scrub speed, but still rail an aggressive turn down groomed runs and hardpack when you need it to. A relative newcomer to the freeski scene, Black Crows is a small and independent ski company headquartered in Chamonix where it uses the mind-bending steeps and inspiring mountains that surround its hometown to inspire its designs. And while the Captis boasts a design that thrives within the confines of the resort, the Captis' 90mm waist width will excel both on and off piste, so you can expand your playground across the entire mountain.Admittedly, there's nothing revolutionary about a rockered ski with a midfat waist, but the way the Captis is built does make it a well-rounded option playful freeskiers and aggressive all-mountain rippers will appreciate. For starters, the Captis has an approachable flex that intermediates and advanced skiers will find easy to handle and surprisingly stable at speed. The tight 17-meter sidecut keeps the ski highly maneuverable in narrow chutes and tight trees, while a happy medium of moderate camber underfoot and rocker in the tips and tails helps keep things stable when you point 'em straight down wide-open aprons and steep groomers. The semi-cap construction helps keep the swing weight low, but still utilizes ABS sidewalls for the durability and stability necessary to charge down the entire mountain with confidence. The 90mm waist tracks easily from edge to edge, but won't leave you feeling outmatched when you encounter chopped crud, boot-top pow, or smooth corn once things start to warm up come spring.

Black Crows Orb Ski Black Crows Orb Ski
Look into the Black Crows Orb Ski and see a future filled with deep carves, fast turns, and aggressive all-mountain charging materialize from the misty realm of the fifth dimension. Designed for skiers with a no-holds-barred approach to skiing, the Orb caters to freeskiers with a background in ski racing. With moderate camber underfoot and a flat tail, this ski excels on groomed runs and hardpack, but that's not say that it isn't afraid to pin the throttle down wind-buffed bowls and tight chutes, either. The ski's powerful and energetic flex comes courtesy of a poppy poplar core and stiff titanal laminates, which give the ski a high-performance feel when you're blasting down frontside groomers or mobbing down chopped crud. Speaking of chopped crud, Black Crows threw in an early rise tip to increase float and add some extra lift with you're testing off-piste conditions. With a 91mm waist, the Orb is by no means a powder ski or dedicated carver, but more of an all-mountain ripper that will make the most of just about any condition you encounter when the last big storm was weeks ago.

Black Diamond Boundary 100 Ski Black Diamond Boundary 100 Ski
From lift-served powder to big spring lines in the backcountry, the Black Diamond Boundary 100 Ski will do it all. Being the narrowest offering in the Boundary Series, the Boundary 100 has a super versatile 100mm waist that will float knee-deep pow, carve groomers, and leave your quads happy after longer forays in the backcountry. The Boundary has a fun and playful profile with plenty of rocker in the tip to put the ski up in powder, camber underfoot for reliable edge hold in firmer conditions, and a rockered tail to keep the ski loose and playful and for when you're picking tight lines through the trees, or navigating a tight couloir.The Boundary 100 is made with Black Diamond's 3D Sandwich construction with pre-preg fiberglass laminates for enhanced torsional rigidity and vertical ABS sidewalls to effectively drive power to the edges for a more solid and stable feel when skiing at high speeds. To help eliminate chatter, the engineers over at BD integrated a dampening layer of rubber within the sidewall just behind the contact point of the ski, meaning you won't lose all your fillings when you're forced to ski a bit of boilerplate or hardpack to get back to the base. Like all skis in the Boundary line, the 100 has a poplar wood core, which strikes a good balance between strength and weight, so you won't get tossed at the first sign of crud, or feel too weighed down when you slap some skins on them and head to the backcountry.

Black Diamond Boundary 107 Ski Black Diamond Boundary 107 Ski
The phrase "all-mountain" is often tied to skis built to do one thing: ski the resort. Realizing the mountain doesn't start and stop with the resort property line, Black Diamond set out to build a line of skis that redefines the phrase with its all-new Boundary series. So, if you're the kind of skier that finds yourself getting fresh tracks inbounds at 9 am then heading to the backcountry for the afternoon, then the Black Diamond Boundary 107 Ski is for you. The Boundary series was designed for freeride skiing both in and out of the resort with a playful rockered tip and tail, camber underfoot, and a 3D Sandwich construction with a lightweight poplar core that's solid in the resort and light enough for the skintrack.The Boundary 107 is the mid-sized option in the line, making it great for all but deepest powder days and ideal for when conditions turn variable. The rockered tip and tail make slashing turns to make that four inches of fresh feel more like eight or nine possible. A heavy dose of camber underfoot makes for great edge-hold when you're arcing turns down big spring lines, or railing down groomers back to the chairlift. The engineers over at BD integrated pre-preg fiberglass laminate to give the skis a damp and stable feel when skiing at high speeds, as well as a layer of rubber integrated into the sidewall that sits just in front of the boot to eliminate jarring chatter when you're skiing on less than ideal surface conditions.

Their playful nature lets you slash and burn turns through the trees and quickly ditch speed before you point em straight through a narrow chute. And when you do get cruising, a pre-preg fiberglass laminate gives the ski a stiff and stable feel, so you can loosen up those turns with confidence. A healthy dose of camber underfoot holds an edge when you need them to and lets you carve a few groomers when you rally back down for another lap. BD integrated a sidewall dampening system into the ski, which consists of a layer of rubber integrated into the sidewall just in front of the boot to help eliminate chatter for a damp and stable feel.

The 107mm waist makes this ski a versatile tool for a variety of backcountry pursuits, be it powder-chasing dawn patrols or couloir-hunting alpine missions. The rockered tip and tail let you float effortless turns through fresh snow, and camber underfoot gives you solid control when the going gets bulletproof.Black Diamond constructed these sticks with a lively poplar wood core, and a pre-preg fiberglass layup maintains torsional rigidity and stability when you're charging hard. The fiberglass layer is what sets the Boundary Pro apart from the normal Boundary skis, making it 20% stiffer than its soft counterpart and ideal for those looking to get after it from sun up to sun down. The Boundary Pro 107 is definitely a ski geared more towards the downhill, but since you've already proven that you have quads of steel, why not burn a little more on the skintrack and enjoy a rip-roaring good time on the descent'

Black Diamond Helio 105 Ski Black Diamond Helio 105 Ski
Lugging a heavy set of skis up the mountain might not be so miserable when conditions are prime and you start climbing right from the road, but when finding soft turns requires long approaches and killer climbs, a superlight ski like the Black Diamond Helio 105 is a near necessity. Designed for all-day tours and big ski mountaineering missions, the Helio weighs a feathery six-and-a-bit pounds in a 175cm length, and has a versatile 105mm waist width that will make the most out of whatever pow you can sniff out, without being too unwieldy when you need to ski a bit of wind-jacked snow, neve, or low-elevation refreeze.The Helio gets its lightweight nature from its engineered ultralight balsa and flax core and light-but-stiff carbon fiber laminate. You might expect a ski of this weight class to have a flimsy cap construction, but Black Diamond went with a torsionally stiff sandwich build with beveled ABS sidewalls to keep things stable when you're able to open up the throttle down wide-open bowls and smooth aprons. The Helio isn't all high-speed business, though; the early-rise tip and tail keep the ski playful and maneuverable in tight chutes and trees, while plenty of traditional camber underfoot delivers solid edge hold when surface conditions turn firm. Black Diamond also added thin sheets of metal in the mounting area for better binding retention, and ABS tail protectors with a skin clip tab to protect your boards from abrasive metal skin clips.

Assuming your favorite time-traveling duo hasn't joined Blizzard's design team, it's safe to say that the fat, powder-gobbling Bodacious Ski, is, well, nothing short of bodacious. It's not the fattest offering from Blizzard's Freeride lineup--an honor reserved for the Spur--but, with a 118mm waist and hybrid rockered shape that lets it float, slash, surf, and smear turns through the deepest blower, you'll find it's adequately sized for most powder days this side of the 54th parallel.This year's Bodacious is now softer than previous editions, which makes it even more playful in pow. Blizzard also built it using its trademark Flip Core technology, which integrates carbon fiber into the tip and tail, which helps to stabilize the rocker profile, reduce chatter, and deliver stability at speed, despite the ski's hybrid rocker profile. Take it from chopped crud to deep pow, but don't be surprised if you find yourself looking for excuses to make the Bodacious your daily driver.

The 88mm waist and full sidewalls give you the ability to lay it into hardpack like your old racing days, and the poplar and beech wood core gives the Brahma CA a playful, lively feel.

Blizzard Latigo Ski Blizzard Latigo Ski
Maybe the Blizzard Latigo Ski isn't as fat as most of its brothers in Blizzard's Freemountain Ti line, but it makes up for its relatively narrow width by being super quick through bumps and trees, powerfully edgy on groomers, and plenty fast enough to give strong intermediate skiers a perma-grin all over the mountain. It all starts with Blizzard's Flipcore, which, unlike traditional cores that are pressed in a cambered mold, presses the core into a mildly rockered shape from the very start, so the rocker profile exactly matches the shape of the ski. This gives the Latigo a snappy, lively feel, which is boosted by two layers of Titanal that stiffen things up and give the ski plenty of power and edge grip. Traditional camber underfoot lets you carve the Latigo like you're riding rails, while mild rocker in the tip and tail make it easier to initiate turns and ride over rough, choppy snow on the lightning-quick sintered graphite base. It's also built with a classic sandwich construction, which helps direct power to the edges and takes a beating without slowing down.

Blizzard Quattro 7.2 Ti Ski with Marker Race Xcell 12 Binding Blizzard Quattro 7.2 Ti Ski with Marker Race Xcell 12 Binding
Trying to drive your floppy powder skis down hardpack just isn't that much fun and can be downright scary, but the groomer game will change when you click into Blizzard's Quattro 7. 2 Ti Ski with the Marker Race Xcell 12 Binding. The Quattro is a hard-charging frontside machine that's a lot more old school than new. Several sheets of Titanal and full traditional camber give the ski a classic feel, and while they don't make the Quattro floaty, smeary, or playful, they do make it a whole heap of fun when when you drop the hammer and roll it on edge.Blizzard designed the Quattro with partial sidewalls, which help you put tons of power into the edges without making the ski feel heavy, and built it with a rugged and powerful sandwich construction for long-lasting power. Even if the perfect corduroy starts getting a little choppy in the afternoon, Blizzard's Suspension IQ technology will kill vibration and make the ride feel smooth as silk, and the wood core helps the Quattro keep a snappy, lively feel even when you're driving it as hard as you can. The ski also comes with the Marker Race Xcell 12 Binding, which clamps you in securely and releases reliably, so you can rip the frontside without worrying about ripping anything else.

Blizzard Quattro 8.4 Ti Ski with Marker Race Xcell 12 Binding Blizzard Quattro 8.4 Ti Ski with Marker Race Xcell 12 Binding
Running waterskis down the frozen frontside isn't too much fun, but your hardpack game will step up three or four notches when you click into Blizzard's Quattro 8. 4 Ti Ski with the Marker Race Xcell 12 Binding. Slightly wider than the Quattro 7. 2 for better mixed-snow ripping, the Quattro 8. 4 is a hard-charging frontside machine that's well suited for frontside days on the East or West coast. Several sheets of Titanal and full traditional camber give the Quattro its powerful feel, and while they don't necessarily make the ski floaty, smeary, or playful, they do make it a whole lot of fun when you push them to the red zone. Even better, the 84mm waist lets you venture off trail, if you decide to do a little off-piste exploration. Blizzard built the Quattro 84 with full sidewalls, which help you put tons of power into the edges without making the ski feel heavy, and pressed it with a rugged and powerful sandwich construction for long-lasting power. Even if the perfect corduroy starts getting a little choppy in the afternoon, Blizzard's Suspension IQ technology will kill vibration and make the ride feel smooth as silk, and the wood core helps the Quattro keep a snappy, lively feel even when you're driving it as hard as you can.

Blizzard Quattro RS Ski with Marker Race Xcell 14 Ski Binding Blizzard Quattro RS Ski with Marker Race Xcell 14 Ski Binding
Blizzard and Marker teamed up to make the Quattro RS Ski and Race Xcell 14 Ski Binding damn near perfect for groomers. Like those hazardous dukes in their politically-incorrect car, this ski and binding make a magnificent mash-up for speed-driven descents down fresh corduroy. Riding this full-camber ski, you can expect the utmost stability, precision, agility, and control while ripping down the resort's groomed goodness. Full camber makes the Quattro RS the most powerful ski in Blizzard's Quattro lineup, giving you superior edge-hold at high speed in hard and icy snow conditions. A TI+ carbon construction gives this ski a surprising amount of stability for how light it feels, and the sandwich sidewall slices into snow at such an angle that you'll still feel in control even when your inside hip is insanely low to the ground. Unique to Blizzard, the IQ system's binding interface ensures a natural flex throughout the ski for better energy transmission, and the RS has an extended arm to dampen overall vibration when you're really cruising. Like the Quattro RS is to Blizzard, the Race Xcell is the most speed-oriented ski binding Marker has made in years. Both the Race Xcell toe and Tincam X heel focus on increased power transmission, and Xcell Piston technology keeps your boot centered during quick jolts in between turns. The Xcell also boasts increased vertical energy absoption at each impact, elasticized travel to enhance the ski's natural flex, and wider contact points for an easier step-in.

Blizzard Quattro RX Ski with Marker Race Xcell 14 Binding Blizzard Quattro RX Ski with Marker Race Xcell 14 Binding
Powder skiing gets most of the glory, but tearing up perfect corduroy is an under-appreciated art. Like any good artist, you need the right tools to do your best work, and you won't find anything better than the Blizzard Quattro RX Ski, which comes equipped with the Marker Race Xcell 14 Binding. Marker designed the Quattro line to dominate firm conditions, and even though the RX is the widest board in the family (tied with the 8. 4 Ti), it's an animal when it comes to edge hold and torsional stability. The majority of the RX's power comes from its IQ Sandwich Sidewall construction, which gives the ski a fun but stable feel and prevents it from twisting and feeling squirrely when you're railing GS turns as high speeds. Titanal and carbon fiber laminates provide some extra dampness and energy, letting you roll from edge to edge and rip turns like a racer, while the two millimeters of early rise in the tip make turn initiation smooth and easy, so you don't feel like your skis hang up or won't turn when you want them to. Blizzard also engineered the Quattro with its IQ binding mounting system, which allows for easy adjustments and provides unparalleled vibration dampening, sensitivity, and control, so you can feel exactly what your skis are doing without worrying about getting rattled to death when you're pinching the throttle on firm morning groomers.

Built with Blizzard's Flipcore technology, the Regulator maintains a natural flex and stable feel, despite its rockered profile. Flipcore technology consists of a wood core that matches the exact profile of the ski, eliminating the need for bending to produce rocker in the tip and tail--the end result is a ski that's stable, playful, and confidence-inspiring whether you're linking turns down the frontside or exploring new features in the terrain park.

Blizzard Spur Ski Blizzard Spur Ski
Fatty powder skis are a dime a dozen these days, and it seems like they're all pretty much slightly modified versions of the same thing: big rocker, soft tips, and a loose, surfy feel. Blizzard's down with the trend, but it's also ready to throw down some changes with the Spur Ski. Don't get it twisted: riding loose, surfy skis can be more fun than swimming in a kiddie pool full of pulled pork, but they quickly get out-muscled when the snow is anything but pristine; the Spur's a little different, though. It still features a pow-crushing 125mm waist and fully rockered tips and tails to surf, float, and pivot through waist-deep creamy goodness, but has a super-progressive sidecut and tapered tips and tails that make it easy to vary your turn shapes at speed and provide a ridiculously smooth and forgiving ride. With some help from the burly sidewalls, the Spur bites into turns like a beast when you get up on edge, so you can rail through pockets of wind-affected and handle groomers like a champ on the way back to the lift. Not only are the Spur's extremities tapered for a smooth, versatile ride, but they're also made of light and stiff carbon fiber, which actually increases the ski's stability while reducing swing weight and vibration, making the Spur a ridiculously bomber platform when you're mobbing through day-old leftovers or wind-hammered crud. Blizzard also incorporated its unique Flipcore technology, which inverts the poplar, bamboo, and ISO core during the pressing process, matching the core profile to the rocker shape for a ride that's incredibly smooth and a flex that's ridiculously consistent, no matter how hard you're pushing the ski. The Spur's following the general path of the rocker pioneers, but it's blazing it's own trail to powder- and big-mountain domination.

DPS Skis Cassiar 95 Pure3 Ski DPS Skis Cassiar 95 Pure3 Ski
Storm riding is great, but since we don't all live on Hokkaido, having a killer frontside ski in your quiver is a must. DPS made its name with fat powder boards, but that's not all the company does; the Cassiar 95 Pure3 Ski is an all-mountain missile made to rail groomers, stitch up tight bump lines, and punch through shallow crud, with the lightness and carbon-fiber stiffness for which DPS is known. Pure3 is DPS' stiff and light flagship construction. It starts with a core made of energetic aspen, which is then sandwiched between two layers of prepreg carbon fiber, creating a core that's 30% stiffer and lighter than similar offerings made with more traditional constructions. By keeping the core light and stiff, DPS was able to keep the Cassiar incredibly nimble and easy to ski in tight spots, without sacrificing the power that you need to rally hardpack with confidence. The carbon-and-aspen sandwich is finished off with a durable polyamide topsheet and UHMW sidewalls, which help keep the Cassiar stiff and direct energy into the edges instead of letting it dissipate by allowing the ski to twist. The aggressive, edgy nature of the Cassiar means that it's not a ski well suited to funky new-school rocker profiles. To that end, DPS built it with classic traditional camber, which supplies mountains of edge grip and a lively edge-to-edge feel that'll help you make short work of hard and variable snow all over the mountain. The steel edges have been hardened to 48 Rockwell, which ensures that rocky encounters won't automatically spell disaster, and DPS finished the Cassiar off with its lightning-fast and armor-tough World Cup bases, so you can choose "interesting" lines without worrying too much about ruining your planks.

Dynastar Cham 2.0 117 Ski Dynastar Cham 2.0 117 Ski
Newness can be scary--remember when you tried Rocky Mountain oysters for the first time'--but it often makes your life better; now you can't go three days without stuffing some moose nuggets down your gullet. Similarly, Dynastar made some changes to the new Cham 2. 0 117 Ski (specifically, it took out the metal and replaced it with fiberglass laminates) but if you give it a chance to prove itself, we don't think you'll be disappointed. Dynastar built the Cham 117, the biggest in the lineup, with a light Paulownia wood core that's been laminated with fiberglass to serve up solid amounts of torsional stiffness and power when you're mobbing down wind-buffed faces, busting through chop, or rallying the groomers back to the lift. Without metal, this year's Cham isn't quite as damp or burly, but it's more playful, lighter, and more ready for the backcountry, which is a killer tradeoff. Traditional camber underfoot and full-length vertical sidewalls give you tons of edging power, and the gradual tip rocker helps the ski float through the cold smoke and gobble up day-old leftovers like they're a five-course meal. The Cham 117 also features Dynastar's progressive five-point sidecut, which combines a tapered tip and tail with traditional sidecut underfoot to give you the best edging, smearing, and turning performance this side of a sports car. The tapered tip engages like a dream but won't hook up or get twitchy at speed, and the tapered pintail helps you float through the deep and lets you dump speed in a hurry when you find yourself heading for an unexpected air. The Cham's sandwich construction lays down plenty of toughness, power, and durability, too, so you won't feel out of place ripping some hardpack to ribbons when it hasn't snowed in a few days.

Dynastar Powertrack 84 Ski Dynastar Powertrack 84 Ski
Calling a ski all-mountain can be a nice way of saying ,"yeah, it's OK," or it can actually indicate that a ski can rip groomers, crush powder, and power through chop without feeling out of place. Dynastar's Powertrack 84 Ski falls solidly in the latter category, with a design that blends the best parts of hardpack and soft-snow skis for serious shredding on any terrain. Like a powder ski, it's built with rocker in the tip and tail to float over deep snow and day-old chop, but it has a burly fiberglass laminate that gives it plenty of stiffness to charge down groomers and mob through manky snow with stability and confidence. Traditional camber underfoot lets you rail turns at eye-watering speeds while the tough sandwich construction and full-length sidewalls provide plenty of stability and power, as well as a bonus shot of durability. To keep things fun when you venture off piste, Dynastar designed the Powertrack with progressive five-point sidecut, a staple in, "fun-shaped," powder skis, tapering the tips and tails for easier turn initiation and a loose, surfy feel in powder. The tapered tail lets you break out of turns easily to slash like you're in a ski movie or dump speed before you accidentally launch off a cliff, and the tip shape allows for smooth, consistent turning without the hooky feeling that plagues traditional skis in soft snow. The snappy, powerful Powertrack doesn't have much of a speed limit in hard or soft snow, and it's mid-fat and playful shape will make sure you don't skip out on a second of fun because the conditions aren't exactly to your liking.

Carvers love their traditional camber underfoot, so Elan built this ski with plenty--however, it's a touch different than your run-of-the-mill ski. Its Amphibio profile and carbon-reinforced Power Spine build utilizes a cambered inside edge for excellent edge engagement with a slightly rockered outside edge for effortless, flowy turning. Add in Elan's trustworthy ELW 11. 0 alpine binding, and you'll have onlookers looking up the Doppler effect on their smartphones after you whiz past with joyful yelps.

Faction Skis Chapter 106 Ski Faction Skis Chapter 106 Ski
Reading between the lines is cool when you're trying to decipher mysterious love notes or trying to translate cryptic clues in a hunt for long-buried treasure, but that kind of thoughtfulness is usually absent from skis. Instead, most skip straight past subtlety in favor of line-bashing bluntness. If you're someone who favors finesse over brute force, Faction's Chapter 106 Ski is a board you should take a look at. More fine tool than blunt instrument, the Chapter 106 will shimmy through trees, carve up groomers, and zip down bump lines in the morning, then slay powder and big lines for the afternoon. At 106mm underfoot, it falls squarely in the "versatile freeride" sweet spot, and boasts a rocker-camber-rocker profile that's fairly traditional these days. The tip and tail float through pow and roll over chunder, while the camber bites on hardpack and gives you the ability to bang urgent Larrys and Randys before you send that cliff you just saw. Faction also beefs up the ski's powerful sandwich construction by wrapping a micro-cap over the top of it to improve durability when you encounter a surprise boulder lurking under early season snow. Though capable on hard snow, the Chapter's also an affable soft-snow performer. The rockered tips and tails enjoy being thrown sideways for big pow slashes, and the five-point sidecut and Transition Zone profile make it easy to lay down smooth, fast turns without the ski hooking up and sending you flying. New this year, the wood core blends the damp, weight-saving qualities of poplar with the snappy energy of beech to give you a lively ski that won't get skittish in choppier snow. Faction hooked it up with a fiberglass laminate to provide some extra zip and stability, and a sintered base that keeps you ripping around the mountain and flying into takeoffs.

Faction Skis Chapter 116 Ski Faction Skis Chapter 116 Ski
While your buddy's metal-layered, point-it-and-go skis are the equivalent of serious literature, Faction's Chapter 116 Ski is more of a choose-your-own-adventure plank. With a rockered tip and tail, and generous 116mm waist, it'll start its story off by surfing pristine pow and slamming turns in untouched bowls, but the sturdy sandwich construction and pre-stressed STP core technology give it enough backbone to rally down groomers and bust through crud when the day's story takes a sudden turn for the firm. Low camber underfoot gives the Chapter some extra bite on hardpack, and the poplar and beech core stays poppy and quick with some tough fiberglass laminates giving it extra snap and stability for big airs and solid stomps. Faction pressed the Chapter with its rocker-and-camber-blending Transition Zones for a super-smooth feel and progressive turn initiation, and it finished the board off with a fast and tough P-Tex 4000 base with steel edges, so the inevitable rocks and logs that you'll ding won't put an end to your session.

Faction Skis Eleven5 Ski Faction Skis Eleven5 Ski
When you're dragging your duffel through the airport en route to yet another faraway locale, make sure you're towing the Faction Eleven5 ski behind you in your ski bag. Fat and capable, this well-fed set of planks remains permanently hungry for Hokkaido pillows, bottomless BC pow, and seriously big Alaskan lines, so don't deny it what it's craving. Quit your job, bail on commitments, and do whatever you have to do to get to the snow on the Eleven5 before someone else does. Whether you encounter moisture-laden or weightless pow when you step off the plane, the Eleven5's stable 115mm waist and rockered tips and tails will slash and surf it's way through with ease. Camber underfoot backs you up when you want to rail wide, fast turns on harder snow, and a stable, powerful sandwich construction with a dual-radius sidecut prevents this floaty ski from turning skittish in less-than-ideal conditions, keeping turn initiation snappy and quick. Faction lays on a dampening Tech Titanal laminate to reduce chatter for a smoother ride at high speeds and wraps a micro-cap topsheet over the top of the ski in case of accidental rock bashing. Responsible for its playful nature, the ski's poplar/ash core brings energy and pop, encouraging you to huck cliffs and cornices without overthinking.

Faction Skis Ten5 Ski Faction Skis Ten5 Ski
Can we get a 10-4 on the Faction Skis Ten5 Ski' Roger that, captain. Or you can Rogers Pass that, too. Ten5, referring to the 105mm waist width, is the name of the game for all-mountain fun. And what's in a name' Well, for these sticks, it means a propensity for pow dustings, an aptitude for busting through crud and chop, and lust for laying it over on hardpack and groomers. The poplar and beech core balances dampness, weight savings, strength, and snappiness for an ultimately playful, powerful, and responsive ski. Add in a strong, light, chatter-quieting titanal sheet, and you get a ski with maximum torsional rigidity that wouldn't be a nightmare to tour on.Though you'll never find Faction in the racecourse, they did glean their Dual Radius Sidecut tech from world-cup race planks. Front of the boot center, the turn radius gets it right and gets it tight like early 2000s rap songs, while a 20% larger sidecut behind the boot increases edge-to-edge responsiveness for smooth turn initiation, wicked precision, and a bit of extra help when landing in the backseat. Transition zones, camber underfoot, and a rockered tip and tail provide burly edging power with a floaty, jibby feel in soft snow.

When paired with the ski's sandwich sidewall construction, this results in a burly ski that won't abandon you when you drop in without thinking first.

Their prowess is undeniably due to years of experience, but they also know how to choose a damn fine ski. Folsom's Rad Dad Ski craves carving at high speeds; its stiff flex compliments the wide turn radius so you can employ equitable grace at eye-watering speeds. At 95mm, the waist of the ski sports enough camber to edge firmer snow, but the mildly rockered tip eases navigation if you come in contact with softer snow. All in all, this plank is a good alternative to powder skis for days where there isn't a single ounce of soft stuff at the resort.

The Double Barrel wood core is dense and durable over the edges for consistent edge grip, and less dense in the center core for reduced swing weight and increased dampness. K2's Asymmetrical tip and tail design features an elongated taper on the outside edge with a longer inside edge, creating more stability and floatation in the deep stuff, and control and maneuverability through crud and hardpack.

It all starts with the K2 Konic core, which is comprised of a lively and energetic aspen and paulownia wood core that gives the iKonic a feel that's fun and playful without being wimpy. The core keeps the ski light, but K2 laid down titanium laminates over the edges to increase power, stability, and grip, so you can enjoy the control of a metal ski without the weight penalty or excessively damp feel. It also laid down a layer of triaxial braided fiberglass and a carbon grid, which helps prevent the iKonic from twisting and feeling squirrely and unpredictable when you're driving a hard edge. The camber profile of the iKonic is called All-Terrain Rocker, but it's not rockered in the way you might think. There's a moderate rise in the tip to smooth out choppy snow and make turn initiation a snap, but traditional camber underfoot and a flat tail give you tons of effective edge to work with, so you can tear morning corduroy to shreds without a second thought.

K2 Luv Sick 80Ti Ski with Marker ERC 11TCx Light Binding - Women's K2 Luv Sick 80Ti Ski with Marker ERC 11TCx Light Binding - Women's
If your last pair of skis broke your heart (or just broke), there's no need to keep suffering, because the K2 Women's Luv Sick 80 Ti Ski with Marker ERC 11TCx Light Binding will heal those wounds in one run. They're a strong, agile, and versatile companion on smooth and sunny groomers, chopped-up storm snow, and boot-top powder. A rockered tip smooths out uneven snow, planes in pow, and makes turning smooth, easy, and fun. The cambered section underfoot helps you hold a solid edge when you're tearing perfect corduroy to smithereens or working your way down some early morning ice, and the Titanal laminate makes sure you can handle high speeds without getting tossed off balance. As it is with any partner, it's the heart that counts, so K2 built the Luv Sick from a snappy, light, and lively blend of milled aspen, paulownia, and bamboo to keep you zipping down the mountain, and it uses K2's Bioflex women-specific design, which is specifically formulated to reduce fatigue and improve balance. Hybritech sidewalls roll into the topsheet to increase durability and decrease weight, and the tapered tip lets you carve smoothly, surf through powder, and vary your turn shape without feeling like your skis are in charge.

K2 Pinnacle 105 Ski K2 Pinnacle 105 Ski
The biggest Pinnacle, the 118, is the pro model of some dude named Seth Morrison, and its little bro the K2 Pinnacle 105 Ski rips just as hard but with a slightly different quiver-of-one design that will slay everything from champagne pow to tight trees to steeps that'll have you puckered. The whole Pinnacle lineup is based on K2's Baseline 2. 0 technology, which matches the camber and sidecut profiles to provide turning characteristics, float, and flex that perfectly match each other. In the case of the Pinnacle, the gradual tip rise of the All-Terrain Rocker works with the slightly tapered tip shape to give you smooth, hook-free float in soft snow, while the tapered and blunted tails work with the low tail rocker to give you powerful finish through turns and the ability to throw your skis sideways when a pow slash is in order. There's a moderate amount of sidecut underfoot, which works with the medium amount of camber to balance edging performance and float without being overly aggressive in soft conditions or sloppy when things tighten up a little. The Pinnacle's shape is cutting edge, and the materials its made from are right there with it. It's not often that you come across a high-performance and powerful ski that has composite insides, but K2's Konic Nanolite core combines a stiff and powerful aspen perimeter with a lightweight and forgiving Nanolite composite in the center, giving the Pinnacle a hard-charging feel that's quicker and easier to ski than boards with full metal laminates. Don't worry, though, the Pinnacle does feature a springy and damp metal laminate, too, along with a triaxial braided fiberglass layer that gives it the strength to stay straight under serious edging forces. K2 covered up the core with its HybriTech half-cap construction, which uses edgy and powerful sidewalls under the cambered section and sandwich construction in the tips and tails to encourage smooth engagement into turns and keep swing weight to a minimum, so you can get ...

K2 Pinnacle 118 Ski K2 Pinnacle 118 Ski
If Seth Morrison puts his name on something, you know that it can charge. Exhibit A: the K2 Pinnacle 118 Ski. As you'd expect, it loves to go big, fast, and hard, but it's built to be versatile and surprisingly fun, so it's not a one-dimensional straightline charger that needs a legend like Seth to make it go. The heart of the Pinnacle is the K2 Konic core, which is at the heart of the ski's uniqueness. At the center of the core, K2 employed a superlight composite material called Nanolite, which keeps the weight of the Pinnacle down while it increases nimbleness and agility. K2 followed that up by slapping sections of stiff ash and fir around the center of the core, which gives the ski a hard-charging and aggressive feel without the deadness that a metal laminate can cause. Indeed, the Pinnacle's totally metal-free, with only a highly energetic triaxial braided fiberglass laminate proving extra stiffness and energy to rip you through aggressive turns on pow and through chunder. At 118mm underfoot, the Pinnacle's pretty obviously a soft-snow ski, and a glance at the Powder Rocker profile will confirm its preferences. Powder Rocker employs a generous amount of rise in the tip and tail to help you surf through powder and slash big ol' hero turns when going sideways is on the menu, but has enough camber underfoot that you can rally through choppy runouts and down groomers without losing control. Hybritech half-cap construction features sidewalls underfoot for edge bite and stiffness, with a cap in the tip and tail to decrease swing weight and keep the Pinnacle nimble, because even Seth has to shimmy his way through tight spots sometimes.

The tip and tail rocker lets you jam all day long, and camber underfoot means you won't slide out like a goob on the groomers.

The camber and directional sidecut makes turning easier and faster on groomers when obstacles change from inanimate to animated. Twin tips help you flip off the lip or float through a dusting of powder. The Twin Tech Sidewall makes it easier to lay an edge when you're careening into a turn on choppy crud or banking a curve on ice-crusted hardpack. An aspen core is stiff enough to handle a few GS turns, but still soft enough for you to jump and jib all over the hill.

Kastle BMX 115 Ski Kastle BMX 115 Ski
The most conservative estimates are calling for over a foot of fresh pow, and coverage is good enough to center punch just about any line on the mountain. On days like these, you'll be glad your Kastle BMX 115 Skis are tuned and ready to go. The dimensions of the BMX 115 Ski make these boards ready to do one thing: send steep and technical lines. With a 115 mm waist width, 141mm in the shovel, and a heavily rockered tip, the BMX 115 will float pow like a dream, slarve turns, and scrub speed with ease, but with camber underfoot and a solid sandwich construction, you won't have to change your drawers when decide to straightline them down tight chutes and arc big turns down wind-buffed faces.Anyone familiar with Kastle's legendary ski construction won't find anything new here, and that's a good thing. A full wood core, ABS sidewalls, and a fiberglass laminate make the BMX 115s stiff and stable, but they're forgiving enough to get into more technical terrain. To help eliminate chatter, the skis feature Kastle's proprietary Hollowtech shovel, which consists of a cutout that helps to reduce vibration through the ski by as much as 15%--not only does this result in a vibration dampening feel smooth, but it also reduces swing weight in case you decide to throw some threes out there. Kastle also added a thin layer of rubber just above the edges to cut chatter and produce a solid platform that will charge down variable conditions just as effectively as it will float pow.It's not hard to build a ski that will make powder skiing fun, but it is difficult to make a ski that will ski pow and tackle variable conditions with that same level of fun. The adequately sized 115 waist will easily handle most powder days, but it won't make you feel like you have a couple of bananas tied to your feet when all that spring pow turns to a slick melt-freeze crust. Further increasing the ski's versatility is the elliptical radius sidecut, which blends a narrower turning radius in the tip and ...

This quick and sporty feel gets a boost from the ski's cap construction, which keeps it light, nimble, and friendly when the terrain turns steep and bumpy. Lightweight carbon gives the ski a uniquely snappy feel while reducing weight, and two layers of titanal increase the torsional rigidity of the ski, delivering a stiff and aggressive feel speed-craving skiers will appreciate. You might be thinking that circular doodad in the shovel of the ski looks pretty sweet, and while that might be true, it's actually there to help eliminate chatter when you're skiing fast in firm and unforgiving conditions.

Finding a ski that's both powerful and playful can be like trapping a unicorn--a feat some might consider impossible. But to those who have slapped the reins on such a mythic beast as the Kastle FX85 HP Ski know, the impossible is always possible with a little ingenuity and the knowledge of what works and what doesn't. Look under the hood of the Kastle FX85 HP Ski and you'll find the inner workings of a hard-charging frontside carver, but with an early rise tip and tail, this ski is plenty playful enough to lay down turns off-piste without sacrificing that stiff and stable feel you want when you're arcing big turns down your favorite blues and blacks.The FX85 HP gets its stiffness and stability from two titanal laminates above and below the lightweight silver fir wood core. Its sandwich construction with full-length ABS sidewalls ensure a stable feel at speed, while a thin layer of rubber over the edges helps reduce chatter through the ski, so you won't feel like you're going to lose a filling when you hit a chunk of ice mid-run. Speaking of reducing chatter, the FX85 HP integrates Kastle's Hollowtech technology in the shovel, which dramatically reduces vibration through the ski, reduces wandering, and keeps the weight low for an easy-to-turn feel. By pushing the widest point of contact further back from the tips, the FX85 has a more forgiving feel that won't hook up when you least expect it. These skis are built to last with a UHM graphite sintered base material that won't piece out after the first pebble, while protective top foil along the top sheet keeps them looking clean after that careless beater rolls over your brand new boards in the lift line.

Gravity's a pretty magical thing. It can deflect light, form stars, and explain the perihelion precession of Mercury, but it can also push you down a snowy hill, which is fun and stuff, especially when you have the Kastle FX95 HP Ski strapped to your feet. It might not get you accelerating down the mountain at 9. 8 meters per second squared, but the FX95 does want to go fast, seeing as it has two sheets of titanal that give it a rock-solid and damp feel that's all about mobbing through chunder and devouring hard snow. ABS sidewalls and low camber underfoot give the ski plenty of edging power, and Kastle's killer elliptical sidecut radius makes it easy to rip off tight turns without compromising stability when you're really lettin' 'er rip. The FX95 likes to slice and dice, but it's no one-dimensional frontside chef. At 95mm underfoot, it's wide enough to comfortably handle boot-top powder, and has Kastle's Dual Rise rocker to make sure your tips don't dive and your tails don't finish turns too aggressively and send you over the bars. Both the tip and tail are tapered to prevent a hooky, unpredictable feel in soft snow, and the tip is finished off with Kastle's Hollowtech 2. 0 technology, which uses a cutout section to reduce the tip mass and corresponding vibration, so you don't get chattered to death when you're rallying down uneven snow.

Shaped by the master himself, the Line Pescado Ski is Eric Pollard's pow-surfing masterwork. Eric's been refining the shape and design of the Pescado for years, and he's finally ready to reveal his vision to the powder skiing community. Inspired by directional snowboards and swallow tail surf boards, the Pescado has a directional shape and swallow tail that increases the effective edge while giving the ski an aggressive feel that will carve deeper and float faster than the twin tip skis Line has been producing since its inception.The directional flex consists of a soft tip that floats through deep pow with ease and eases turn initiation when you're slashing quick turns through tight trees and stacked pillows. The stiffer tail delivers a more powerful feel that demands a more active stance, but rewards those willing to the resist the backseat with powerful and stable turns. The early rise tip only enhances the Pescado's powder-surfing prowess while keeping the ski inherently playful in the deepest conditions. And if that wasn't enough, Pollard hooked the Pescado up with Line's Early Taper to reduce trail drag and eliminate hooking in powder. The dimensions of the Pescado translate to one thing: powder skiing. The huge 125mm waist and mega-wide 158mm tip will keep you afloat whether you're slashing blower pow in Japan or skiing the steep and deep at Baker.

Line Sick Day 104 Ski Line Sick Day 104 Ski
Possibly the most versatile ski in Line's new and improved Sick Day series, the Sick Day 104 is the ultimate tool to huck, slash, and carve on any day of the season. Line gave their popular Sick Day collection a complete makeover, with a brand new profile and core.The primary goal in the rebirth of the Sick Day collection was dropping weight without sacrificing performance. Their solution came in the form of what they've dubbed as Magic Finger Filaments--carbon filaments stretching from the tip and tail to maintain stability while shedding weight. Combine that with the ultra-light super strong Aspenlite core, and you've got a world-class ripper.The 104mm waist is an ideal width for a one-quiver ski--the rockered tip and tail let the Sick Day 104 surf powder with effort and ease, and the camber underfoot lets you lay down turns when the fluff turns to crud. Line's Directional Flex features a softer tip for easier turn initiation, with a slightly stiffer tail to ensure stability and control at high speeds. The Thin Tip design reduces swing weight and tip bounce, letting you throw threes off pillows to your heart's content.

Line Sick Day 94 Ski Line Sick Day 94 Ski
Line was so stoked about the smooth, playful feel of their brand new Sick Day collection that they decided to make it in not just three, but four versions. The Sick Day 94 is third in line in the order of fatness, but arguably leads the pack in versatility. The 94mm waist and rockered tip and tail let you frolic through powder with the giggly enthusiasm of a six-year-old in a candy shop, while the camber underfoot lets you carve turns like your old gate bashing days.The Sick Day 94 utilizes Line's new Magic Finger Carbon Filaments and Aspenlite core, ditching the cumbersome clunk of the old Sick Day series, and reemerging as a lightweight, tough-as-nails, big-mountain cruiser. The Directional Flex features a softer tip to initiate pow turns with ease, and a stiffer tail to maintain control when you're bombing groomers at Mach speeds.While still not the most feather-light backcountry option, an ambitious freerider would be happy to slap a pair of AT bindings on these guys and power through the uphill in order to enjoy unrivaled pop and playfulness through fresh goods in the backcountry.

Line Sick Day 95 Ski Line Sick Day 95 Ski
Built to be your go-to plank, the Line Sick Day 95 Ski is designed with corn slashers, corduroy leaners, and hard chargers in mind. With camber underfoot, you won't lose your grip when you're arcing turns down the groomers, and thanks to that early rise tip and tail, you'll still get that surfy feeling when you're slashing turns through powder stashes. The MapleLite Macroblock core uses maple underfoot so you have a hardy base to fasten your binders to, while aspen in the tip and tail give that extra pop you need when you're boosting off rocks, stumps, and anything else that looks remotely huck-able.Additionally, the Capwall construction gives you the best of both worlds; its capped topsheet keeps the swing weight low and the ski nimble, while sidewalls just above the edge drive power to the edges for a solid and stable feel when you're laying into the turn. Directional flex technology gives the Sick Day a soft tip and stiff tail for more float in powder and easier turn initiation, without the tail washing out on you. Line pioneered five point sidecut, so it's no surprise the Sick Day sports Line's legendary 5-Cut shape, which allows for easy turn initiation and hook-free turning, keeping your lines fast, fluid, and well... sick.

Line Sick Day Tourist Ski Line Sick Day Tourist Ski
That cough sure came on suddenly, but it cleared up equally quickly, so you might as well make the most of being magically un-bedridden by loading up the Line Sick Day Tourist Ski and venturing up into the mountains as a way of giving thanks to the power of modern medicine, positive thinking, and panacea. The Sick Day packs a traditional Line feel----playful, versatile, and just jibby enough----into a lightweight package, which uses a wood and composite Cloud Core and tapered Thin Tip to reduce weight whether you're on the snow or in the air. The 102mm waist width is right in the sweet spot for serious all-conditions touring, and the CapWall hybrid cap and sidewall construction is lighter than traditional sidewalls but sturdier than a cap, so you can push the Sick Day hard without making it fall ill. The Sick Day Tourist is more of an all-mountain plank than a jib stick, so it has a directional flex and and moderate tip and tail rocker than make high-speed turns and pow slashes more than manageable. Taper in the tip lets you make smooth, hook-free turns in variable and soft conditions, and Line's Fivecut sidecut blends five different sidecut radii to give you the ability to make easy turns of all shapes. Underfoot camber lets you rally hard, and the long effective edge provides serious hold when you lay your boards over for some hardpack hammering.

Line Sir Francis Bacon Ski Line Sir Francis Bacon Ski
It's true: Sir Francis Bacon was a real dude. Not only was he fortunate enough to share his name with arguably the best food in the world, but Sir Bacon was also a revolutionary thinker. Line aimed for enduring legacy when it created its Sir Francis Bacon Ski, and it's won enough awards to suggest that it's continuing in its namesake's footsteps. Grab the new Line Sir Francis Bacon Ski and turn the entire mountain into your deliciously shreddy meat-strip playground. Even though it's named after one of the pioneers of empiricism, the Bacon is all about feel, not science. There's no explanation for why slashing pow and boosting off natural features all day every day feels so good, but the new Bacon can do all that and more. Built with a sleeker 104mm waist, rockered tip, and raised tail, the Sir Francis will let you float over soft snow, slash giant pow turns, and get as creative as the laws of physics allow. Hungry for some air' The Partly Cloudy Core uses a Paulownia construction to keep the Bacon ridiculously light without compromising its stability at speed, so you can float like a feather and land just as quietly--it also leaves the Bacon begging at the door for some turns in the backcountry. Prefer to dine at high speed on open faces' The full sidewall construction provides powerful edge hold and the longer active edge makes for smooth, predictable performance at highway speeds. No matter your pleasure, the Bacon makes it smooth, surfy, and fun with Line's multi-radial 5-Cut sidecut encouraging consistent and predictable turns of any size, and a symmetrical flex that lets you ski switch just as easily as not.

You'll fall in love with its blend of responsiveness, smoothness, and versatility, and it will be your partner in crime as you venture from groomers to the trees to bigger and more distant lines.

The 5-Cut sidecut helps you make all types of turns at all kinds of speeds, too, so you never feel bored when you're cruising or scared when you're pushing the envelope.

Line Supernatural 100 Ski Line Supernatural 100 Ski
Ever tried to explain to a non-skier why you love skiing' It's pretty easy to steer into weird psuedo-spiritualism, usually received by the kind of patronizing expression reserved for Uncle Jim when he talks about the benefits of his magnetically ionized socks at Christmas dinner. You might as well save your breath, stop evangelizing, and daydream about the Line Supernatural 100 Ski instead.The Supernatural's not a pure pow ski, and it's not a super-jibby park ski, and it's not a one-trick frontside ripper, and that's more than OK because it makes its money in real-life variable conditions or as a do-it-all mountain conqueror. At 100mm underfoot, it falls somewhere between hardpack charger and directional crud-buster, and it uses Line's famous 5-Cut five-dimensional sidecut to serve up virtually unlimited turn shapes, so you can shimmy through trees, blast over crud, and punch it down big, open lines. The Maple Macroblock core combines two rugged maple stringers with quick and poppy aspen, keeping the Supernatural stable at speed, quick in tight spots, and poppy when you're feeling playful.Line was on the forefront of the rocker revolution and was so successful that the Supernatural's Early Rise tip and tail are pretty commonplace these days. The rockered Thin Tip lets you float through pow and cruise over crud without flapping, diving, or sending you over the bars, and the raised tail lets you slash pow turns, dump speed, and ride switch like a boss (although the Supernatural's a fairly directional ski that prefers to ride facing downhill). High density polyethylene sidewalls finish off the Super's tough Shockwall sandwich construction, and burly 2mm steel edges bite into hardpack and handle the occasional rocky encounter without cracking and leaving you sad, edgeless, and alone.

Line Supernatural 115 Ski Line Supernatural 115 Ski
Once you take the Line Supernatural 115 Ski out on a day with over a foot of fresh powder, you'll realize that it's the only friend a powderhound needs. At 115mm underfoot, this big-mountain monster loves powder about as much as a chubby third grader loves ice cream sundaes. With its freeride-specific shape, the Supernatural maintains a super playful feel and intuitive nature not found on too many big-mountain skis. All this powder talk may lead you to believe that the Supernatural can't perform on hardpack, but that's just not true, and here's why: Line gave this bomber its Maple Macroblock core, which combines two full-length maple stringers surrounded by aspen, giving you the solid stability of maple and the lightweight qualities of aspen as you float through pillowy tree lines and charge into powdery bowls. Not stopping there, Line then gave it a Metal Matrix die-cut titanal laminate. This adds outstanding power to the wood core's buttery-smooth flex, and gives you solid edge hold at speed when you're maching a groomer to get back to that above-the-lift chute that hasn't been open all season. Along the edges, Line's new Shockwall technology provides a full height and length elastomer sidewall to help absorb vibration and shock for a delightfully smooth ride, even if you're shaking in your boots. Early Rise geometry allows for effortless turn initiation and float when you dive off-piste, while Early Taper in the tail reduces tail drag and hooking in powder. Directional Flex means that a softer tip floats and initiates turns like a champ while a stiffer tail provides power, stability, and control at speed.

Line made sure the Tigersnake could handle its business outside of the park by giving it Early Rise rockered tips and tails and underfoot camber to smooth out choppy snow, plane when things get soft, and provide the possibility to hook up turns of all shapes and sizes. Both tips and tails are also designed with Early Taper, which makes it easier to break out of a turn and scrub speed, or to make big, steezy slashes in soft snow. The symmetrical flex lets you ride switch as easily as going forward, so you can stomp switch tricks, ride into takeoffs point uphill, or switch it up off little side hits all the way down the hill.

Moment Vice Ski Moment Vice Ski
Between the casinos and overall close proximity to Las Vegas, it's no surprise that Reno-based Moment Skis crafted up hard-hitting, freewheeling park ski named the Vice. As its do-it-all park ski, the Vice is what you might call the franken-creature of dedicated shredders who have spent plenty of time hitting park jumps, sliding rails, and setting up urban jibs without forgetting how fun it is to rip the rest of the mountain. Moment made the Vice's core with ash, and reinforced it with carbon stringers on the top and bottom to make sure it stayed light and poppy, with enough backbone to power over choppy in-runs and stomp mashed-potato landings. The whole shebang is sandwiched between two layers of triaxial fiberglass, which help keep the ski torsionally stiff, making it a surprisingly good all-mountain tool, and it's topped off with a lightweight and spin-happy semi-cap construction. The 2. 2mm steel edges are overlaid with VDS damping rubber to prevent de-lamming and to ease vibration, and they're hardened to 48 Rockwell to bite into icy takeoffs and stand up to rocks and rails. Don't worry about shorting your next gap, either, because the 1. 2mm Durasurf sintered base is super-fast and holds wax like nobody's business. Like many of Moment's boards, the Vice is built with Mustache Rocker, which has traditional camber underfoot for stability at speed and great edge hold when carving into take-offs, and rocker in the tip and tail for a playful, buttery feel that helps prevent edges from hooking up on rails and boxes, slamming you onto your face. The rocker reduces the Vice's effective edge, making it ski slightly shorter, but Moment made up for this by slimming down the sidecut to lengthen the turn radius, creating a ski that's nimble without being squirrely. It's also easy to ride switch, thanks to a nearly-symmetrical construction.

Nordica NRGy 100 Ski Nordica NRGy 100 Ski
A while back, the advent of wide-girthed power skis and twitchy frontside rippers pushed all-mountain skis into the leftover category. Initially, these skis weren't big enough to float effortlessly on deep days or aggressive enough to do well on hardpack. Fortunately, technology caught up to itself, and today all-mountain skis have come into their own as the overachievers on the mountain. Nordica's NRGy 100 makes a glowing representative for the category as a whole; as seriously sick chargers that do a little bit of everything well, the NRGy was bred to excel on the days you can't get a straight answer about what's good at the resort. Nordica builds the NRGy 100 with its All-Mountain CamRock profile, which uses traditional camber underfoot and a rockered tip to combine lay-them-out stability on groomers with playfulness in softer off-piste lines. Solid ABS sidewalls and a Torsion Bridge Titanal laminate eagerly blast through thick crud and refrozen bumps off-piste, while the light and lively I-Core beech wood core surfs and pivots through deeper stuff when Mother Nature surprises you with an afternoon of free refills. Before you assume the Torsion Bridge is just your run-of-the-mill sheet of metal though, listen up. Nordica shaved as much weight as possible from the metal, shaping it to direct powder to the edges without affecting the ski's fore-aft flex. The design works with four (count 'em) prepreg laminates to help the NRGy stand up to aggressive skiing in tough, unkind terrain. With the tapered tail, you can make any sort of turn shape you want, while the rockered tip planes over chunder and deep snow for a smooth all-condition ride. Throw in a speedy sintered UHMW base, and get ready to see why all-mountain no longer means what it used to.

Now, all-mountain skis can be counted on to rail groomers, be quick and nimble in the bumps and trees, and handle ankle-deep powder and leftover chunder without blinking. The NRGy's one of the best of the breed, with a versatile 90mm waist and All-Mountain CamRock profile--a moderately rockered tip to go with hardpack-crushing traditional camber underfoot--that'll rally around the whole mountain. Nordica gave it a tapered tail that makes it easy to break out of turns if you're feeling a little bit surfy on a powder day and reinforced the steel edges with rubber sheets to give the NRGy a damp and reliable feel.Of course, a ski's only as good as what's on the inside, which is why Nordica took great care to design the NRGy with a lively wood I-Core Ti core, which features Torsion Bridge technology, a specially machined layer of Titanal that adds plenty of edge-to-edge stiffness while keeping the weight down and maintaining the ski's moderate fore-aft flex. Add in four layers of prepreg laminate, stiff and durable ABS sidewalls, and a quick sintered UHMW base, and you have a ski that's as all-mountain ready as they come.

Made with Renoun's Hyper Dampening Technology, the Endurance incorporates eight inlays of Renoun's non-Newtonian polymer, which allows the ski to absorb chatter more efficiently, giving the ski its damp and stable nature that's fun, fast, and a blast on everything from frontside groomers to backside bowls.The versatile 98mm waist works with the tip and tail rocker to give the Endurance a super-nimble feel that rolls almost effortlessly from edge to edge. A wide shovel (121mm) gives the ski some extra float when you do venture off piste, while the rockered tail lets you scrub speed quick through the trees and slash turns through pow. Renoun may have given the Endurance a design that leans heavily towards the freeride side of things, but it's still a hard-charging board that's a blast on groomers thanks to traditional camber underfoot, carbon fiber laminates, and full-length UHMW sidewalls, which efficiently drive power to the edges for increased control and a more solid, confidence-inspiring feel once you lay the skis on edge.

If the park's your only stomping ground, the Scratch is the only stick you need, with a killer combination of pop, durability, and low swing weight that'll let you boost like a lunatic, carve hard into takeoffs, and take things to the streets without causing too much damage. Like any single-minded jib machine, the Scratch's profile sports camber with slight rocker at the tip and tail for super-energetic boosting, and it has a light and snappy poplar wood core and thirty-degree sidewalls to enhance edging and durability. To keep the weight down and tricks up, Rossignol built the Scratch with a Minicap Sandwich construction, which combines the edge grip and power of a sandwich with the lightweight flexibility of a cap. It also gave the ski an Extended Sidecut shape, which provides bomber edge grip at speed and easy maneuverability when you're moving slowly, so you can rail into jumps and take the Scratch into the trees without feeling like it's the last run you'll ever take. Last but not least, Rossi rounded the tip and tail of the Scratch, which makes for smooth trannies, easy buttering, and catch-free switch riding.

Rossignol Soul 7 HD Ski Rossignol Soul 7 HD Ski
Most everyone fancies themselves a big-time freerider these days, and while these folks are busy chasing glory, making POV edits, and telling everyone at the bar how rad they are, there are plenty more skiers who are more worried about seeking out soft stashes and secret tree lines. Rossignol's Soul 7 Ski isn't the biggest, burliest, or hard-chargingest ski out there, but it's the perfect tool for skiers who like to ski hard all over the mountain, and are more worried about having fun and skiing well than going Mach 7 and stomping 60 footers. Rossi's 7 Series has been around for years now, starting with the game-changing S7, and the Soul 7 keeps things pretty true to the "fun-shaped" heritage of that ski. The Super 7 and Squad 7 are bigger and burlier, but the Soul 7's 106mm width and versatile Power Turn Rocker help it conquer any type of snow and all types of terrain, from deep blower to leftover crud to wind-buffed cream cheese to groomers. Power Turn's large amount of tip splay smooths out rough snow and helps you float through the deep, and camber underfoot provides plenty of stability and edge grip when you're pinching the throttle on the way back to the lift. Rossignol also incorporated its honeycomb Air Tip 2. 0 technology, which lightens the tip to reduce the chatter and flap of old-school tip rocker and lowers swing weight to keep the Soul 7 nimble through tight trees and in the air. By building the core out of lightweight Paulownia wood, Rossignol kept the Soul 7 quick and maneuverable, and reduced the weight to make it more backcountry friendly. The new Soul also has a slightly more squared-off tail, which allows easier skin attachment. Vertical sidewalls are also new on this year's Soul 7, which give the ski a bit more edging power and a more hard-charging look. And, while it's nice and light, the race-inspired Carbon Alloy Matrix in the core keeps things stiff enough to charge when you're feeling aggressive.

The endless succession of floppy, boring powder skis is enough to lull you to sleep instead of psych you up for serious shredding, but the lively, strong, and high-powered Rossignol Super 7 HD Ski is a giant WAKE UP slap right across your dozy mug. The latest offering in the game-changing 7 Series, the Super 7 is revamped from last year and ready to lay down huge pow slashes, stomp cliffs, and rally though chunder like it's late for something.Rossignol's original S7 pioneered the "fun shaped" powder ski and set the standard for friendly powder skis, and while its influence is still there in the Super 7's slight pintail and gently tapered tip, the Super is a different, more aggressive beast than its forebear. The S7's easiness made it feel noodly when you drove it hard, but the Super's light and snappy paulownia wood core is beefed up with Carbon Alloy Matrix, which give it a stiffness and torsional stability that beg to be driven hard, not gently shimmied through mellow trees. Rossignol's Minicap Sandwich construction combines the stiffness and edginess of sidewalls with the smooth-turning and lightweight properties of a cap, so the Super 7 feels like a beefy sidewall ski when you're pushing it through crud and down big lines, but it moves with the agility and ease of a capped board when you're zippering tight tree lines or ripping soft post-storm bumps.Tip and tail rocker combined with underfoot camber isn't exactly groundbreaking these days, but it doesn't have to be because it works so damn well. Rossignol pressed the Super 7 into a profile it calls Power Turn rocker, which features a section of reasonably mellow camber underfoot for hardpack performance and pop, along with rockered sections in the tip and tail that let you slash big turns, powerslide when you want to, and generally make short work of deep, soft snow. To fix the tip chatter that plagues many rockered skis, Rossignol incorporated a honeycomb material into the Air Tip 2. 0 to reduce mass and v...

Of course, no matter how much you want to boost, you'll have to come back to Earth eventually, which is why the NFX has been hooked up with Pulse Pad Pro rubber shock absorbers in the tip, tail, and binding area to take the sting out of hard landings and add some durability to the poppy wood core. The full camber construction adds additional pop, provides a solid platform for stomping, and lets you really drive the XL edges into hard takeoffs and icy jumps. Salomon hooked the NFX up with some more park-specific technologies, too, starting with a Jib Tech base that combines harder and more durable sections with faster material in key sections to give you the ability to slide rails and mob into jumps without worrying about dinging your bases or coming up short. The twin tip shape lets you ride switch like it's no big deal, and the sandwich construction and ABS sidewalls give the NFX all the durability and edging power that you need to get as rad as gravitationally possible.

Salomon QST 106 Ski Salomon QST 106 Ski
Like you, Salomon's QST 106 Ski craves those deep powdery mornings, yet it can still handle its own when you're forced to ride on-piste because everything's tracked out. Given its 106mm waist width, this QST undoubtedly hovers over the sweet soft stuff with ease, and a Twin Rocker profile only enhances performance down untracked goodness. Expect a playful pivot and surf-like feel when you turn down the steep and deep. Unfortunately all good things must end, and just like the inevitable changing of each season, a massive powder dump is bound to bring hordes of skiers to the resort, which indubitably changes the softest terrain into tracked hardpack faster than you can look up the definition of "indubitably." Fortunately for you, the QST 106 Ski still thrives on firmer snow with its inverted 3D wood core that filters vibration and optimizes stability when you're speeding down the mountain. The CFX carbon superfiber laminate and Koroyd honeycomb inserts at the tip and tail also increase dampening, while the power platform underfoot enhances your edging on hardpack. The ski's full sandwich sidewall 360 degree construction directs power to the edges for increased stability so you can ski with power and fluidity, regardless of conditions.

Salomon QST 118 Ski Salomon QST 118 Ski
There are two things in this world that make you drool: bottomless pow and jelly-filled powdered doughnuts. While the latter is certainly nice from time to time, bottomless pow is your true vice, and the Salomon QST 118 Ski is the cup of black coffee you choose to wash down those steep powder-filled lines that leave your face plastered with pure powdery goodness.The QST 118 is a new offering from Salomon and comes loaded with all the big-mountain performance you need to step up to big lines in deep conditions. The wide 118mm waist provides float when your home range is pounded with back-to-back storms, and Salomon's Twin Rocker profile puts a generous dose of rocker in the tip and tail to give this ski a playful, surfy feel when you're sessioning deep tree lines and dropping into steep pillow lines. Full ABS sidewalls drive power to the edges when you lay the QST on edge for a secure and stable feel when you're arcing GS-style turns back to the base, and the tail insert--a lightweight layup of honeycomb material, Koroyd, and ABS plastic--reduces weight, increases float, and reduces that floppy tail feel rockered skis have to give the QST a damp, flop-free feel in the tail. To keep the QST relatively light and stiff, Salomon threw in a prepreg carbon and flax layup to enhance stability, absorb vibrations, and help enhance the ski's dampening qualities.

Salomon Rocker2 100 Ski Salomon Rocker2 100 Ski
The Rocker2 100 Skis are the most versatile option in Salomon's Rocker2 lineup, and they're the fabled, do-it-all boards that everyone's been waiting for. Like all the Rocker2s, the 100s have a light and lively wood core and are built with Salomon's now classic Twin Rocker profile, which combines low camber underfoot with rocker in the tip and tail for a ride that's edgy when you need it and surfy when you want it.The more you roll the Rocker2s over, the harder the edge will engage, so look out groomers and park jumps, but if you keep them relatively flat, the tips and tails will float and surf through softer snow, giving you the loose, smeary powder performance of a more powder-specific ski. This is partly due to their Hook-Free Taper, which moves the ski's widest points towards the middle for smooth turn initiation, as well as the ability to break your tips and tails out of a turn for that loose, surfy feel that pow skiers love. Loose and surfy doesn't mean wimpy, though, as the Rocker2s are built with a rugged sandwich sidewall construction that'll direct plenty of power to the edges and stand up to the occasional rock, rail, or root hit.

Salomon TNT Ski Salomon TNT Ski
Drop Salomon's TNT Ski into the pipe, throw it into some techy trees, or blast it down some groomers. It might be named after a blunt instrument, but the TNT's an all-mountain scalpel that's perfect for teenagers or lighter riders looking for a ski that can make short work of everything the mountain has to offer. Traditional camber underfoot gives the TNT plenty of pop, helps you rail turns, and lets you carve into takeoffs, while the lightweight wood core holds the swing weight down for easy spinning and keeps the flex manageable for skiers who don't weigh as much as an East German wrestler. Even though it's light and nimble, the TNT can rip. Salomon covered up the wood core with a Titanal laminate, which adds plenty of backbone for high-speed skiing, and it finished the ski with an Edgy Monocoque cap construction, which combines weight savings with torsional rigidity for reliable edging and powerful turns. The steel edges bite into hardpack, and their XL burliness can stand up to rocks, rails, and urban shenanigans.

Salomon X-Max X12 Ski Plus XT12 TI Binding Salomon X-Max X12 Ski Plus XT12 TI Binding
Salomon's X-Max X12 Ski Plus XT12 TI Binding isn't for the faint of heart. This hard-charging front-side ski comes to the mountain with a stiff flex and power-first design that loves to arc high-speed turns down steep groomers and straightline moderate blues at cheek-flapping speeds. Salomon built this ski with all the necessary ingredients to make it stiff, responsive, and solid underfoot when you're really opening things up. The full-length Powerframe+ technology consists of two layers of titanium and a single layer of lightweight carbon, which give the ski a torsionally stiff feel that advanced skiers will love.Since groomers are usually only perfectly smooth for those first few runs of the day, Salomon inserted a layer of rubber along the edges to dampen vibration when you're still blasting down the frontside after it's been chopped up. The sandwich construction with ABS sidewalls directs energy to the edges to enhance stability and power as you lay the skis on edge, and a generous dose of camber underfoot lets you carve these skis like they're on rails. All this talk of power and stiffness may deter the more casual skier, but the slightly raised tip and tail help give this otherwise aggressive ski a forgiving, easier-to-turn feel intermediate skiers will appreciate. And if that wasn't enough, Salomon added a lightweight honeycomb tip to reduce weight and increase float when skiing chopped crud and bumpy groomers.

Sure, it has a 108mm waist that's comfortable mobbing through powder, blasting through chop, and dicing up sections of hardpack, but the rest of the ski isn't really what you'd consider traditional. For starters, it's fully rockered--you read that right--which isn't something that generally says, "all-mountain crusher." It also features a full sidewall construction 3D Ridge design, which isn't found anywhere outside of Volkl's lineup. OK, how does a fully rockered shape work for a ski that's designed to do it all' By being combined with a host of other design features, that's how. While the rocker helps the 100Eight float through pow, smooth out choppy snow, and make short work of wet 'n' heavy mank, the sidewall construction employs a strong, energetic, and torsion-resistant carbon stringer that allows you to put plenty of power into the ski's edges without worrying that they'll be flimsy or unstable. The full sidewall is wrapped around a multi-layer wood core, which features burly ash underfoot for stability and edging power and springy poplar towards the tips and tails for a lively, quick, and energetic feel that helps you scoot through tight trees, pop off terrain features, and open it up when the mountain allows. The core construction is also designed to work with Volkl's new 3D Ridge construction. Basically, Volkl created a raised center section fore and aft of the binding and tapered it dramatically towards the edges, which gives the ski unreal edge-to-edge quickness and smooth flex without adding weight or sacrificing stability. Combined with the moderate taper found in the tips and tails, 3D Ridge gives the 100Eight a ridiculously smooth and predictable feel in soft snow, on hardpack, and in evverything in between, so you can push your speed limit without feeling like your tips are going to fold up or catch and send you flying.

The Volkl 90Eight Ski is a true all-mountain thrasher with a mid-fat waist that will float a bit of boot-top pow, devour bumps, carve groomers like a Christmas goose, and make short work of spring-time slush. Volkl updated this season's model with an ultralight carbon stringer for enhanced torsional stiffness.Like the more big mountain-minded 100Eight, the 90Eight features Volkl's 3D Ridge construction, which brings the bulk of material to the center of the ski, resulting in reduced swing weight, without sacrificing the ski's dampness and stability at speed. The early taper sidecut eases turn initiation for an easy, playful feel when you're hunting pow stashes or making tight turns down technical chutes. Volkl's multi-layer wood core makes up the character and flex of the ski, which, since its a Volkl, is inherently stable at speed with plenty of power to bust through crud, without breaking a sweat.

Its 116mm waist is undoubtedly uber primo in powdery terrain, and the rockered tip and tail cruise through the deeps like you were on groomers.

Full sidewalls protect the poppy wood core and stiff carbon stringers from all the bashing you're planning this season. The core isn't completely poplar by the way; there's a bit of dense ash underneath the binding area for better retention. The carbon stringers keep the ski surprisingly stiff for how light the Bash weighs.

It also uses Volkl's UVO vibration-dampening system, which uses a free-floating counterbalance in the tip to counter 360 degrees of vibration, giving you a smooth, silky ride even when you're mobbing through rough snow.Volkl also equipped the Code with the rMotion2 12. 0 D binding, giving you a package that's ready to ride as soon as it hits your doorstep. With a footprint that's nearly as wide as the ski, it provides excellent power transmission to your edges, and comes with a DIN that ranges from 4-12, so it'll work for almost all skiers.

Volkl Confession Ski Volkl Confession Ski
Your friends know your powder fever runs pretty hot, but they don't really understand what lengths you'll go to get a face shot: tuck ropes, cut off children, and of course ditch anyone slowing you down. Volkl's Confession Ski complements your "no friends on a powder day" policy. Designed to sashay through powder and jib off features as if the mountain was your dance floor, the Confession succeeds Volkl's iconic Shiro, eschewing the blunt-nosed tips for a more tapered tip and tail that charges hard and fast when you're looking to speed up from first to second base, err, hot laps. Moreover, the Confession boasts the same Titanal-laced structure that the Shiro was known for, meaning you're able to cruise through chop without having to worry about your planks suddenly ghosting like a bad prom date. And like any good chrome-infused love song, the Confession's rocker tip and tail, combined with camber underfoot, makes for sweet and smooth turn initiation that's backed up by tough, P-Tex 4500 bases. The multi-layer wood core consists of a dense ash beneath the bindings to increase screw retention, while the flexible poplar section assures a snappy, responsive feel so you don't have to compromise dexterity in favor of durability. Now, an adaptive core is nice enough on its own, but without the Power Construction, the Confession ends up coming across like a pre-pubescent squeaker when you try to take it on the big boy mountains. The Power Construction utilizes vertical sidewalls and an internal torsion box setup that's akin to old racing skis, but ultimately provides grip, stability, and a smooth ride when tackling super-duper steep vert. So, for those of you who were worried about whether or not the Shiro replacement would step up to the plate, needless to say you can count on the Confession to deliver reliable stability and shock-absorbing performance.

It's remarkable how fast the resort's groomed corduroy goes from neat and organized to messy and chaotic before lunchtime, but you rarely notice a difference because Volkl's Kanjo Ski keeps you speedy regardless of the time of day. Heavy on the camber, the Kanjo cuts into corduroy and crud with equal tenacity, and there's just enough rocker in the tip and tail when snowfall's keeping the resort soft and variable. Volkl made this ski on the stiffer side for more intermediate to advanced riders. The multi-layer wood core blends poplar with stiff beech wood so you can feel a little pop with each turn, and titanium stringers ensure proper stiffness; if you feel like you should ski with something stiffer than titanium, then you might be a superhero.

Volkl also hooked the Kendo up with a multi-layer wood core, which features stiff ash underfoot to improve binding retention and power, with lively poplar in the tips and tails for playfulness and easy maneuvering.

Volkl Kenja Ski - Women's Volkl Kenja Ski - Women's
The Volkl Kenja Women's Ski is a fun-loving, all-mountain ski that indulges in the occasional pow and relishes ripping down front side groomers, no matter how many diamonds are on the trail sign. A skinnier version of the more powder-hungry Aura, the Kenja checks in at 90mm underfoot, making it significantly friendlier on the hardpack than its big sister, without giving up the necessary float to enjoy the freshies. Volkl made sure to include a rockered tip and tail, which will smooth out any bumpy rides, plane through powder, and make turn initiation a simple act of thought. Although it's buttery smooth to ski, the Kenja has the chops to open things up courtesy of a titanium laminate sandwiched to the multi-layer ash and poplar core. The ash is located underfoot to improve torsional stiffness, while the light and flexible poplar provides pop and playfulness in the tip and tail. Volkl built the Kenja with its full sidewall construction that consists of vertical sidewalls for durability and serious grip when you're looking to crave up some groomers. When versatility is paramount, look no further than the Kenja.

Volkl Kink Ski Volkl Kink Ski
There's no need to tell everyone what sort of sordid activities you get into up on the mountain, but they'll know just how gnarly you really are when they see you're riding the Volkl Kink Ski. A directional twin that's designed to do unrepeatable things to jumps, rails, pipe walls, hardpack, and soft snow, the Kink has traditional camber underfoot for solid edge grip, along with rocker in the tip and tail to smooth out bumpy conditions, float through a bit of fresh pow, and make turning buttery smooth.Volkl knows that a ski spending the majority of its time in the park needs to be tough, so it designed the Kink with a multi-layer wood core, which features a solid layer of ash underfoot for power and binding retention, as well as light and snappy poplar in the tip and tail for a fun, lively ride that makes the ski easy to boost, butter, and pop onto rails. The core's been topped off with a carbon stringer for increased torsional stiffness and edging power, making it bold enough to straightline, without feeling like you're going to yard sale your whole set up. Combine that stiff feel with the 89mm waist, and you have a ski that can rally the park, spank tree lines with ease, and whip down groomers, without thinking twice.

Enlightenment traditionally arrives after years of meditation, but it can also happen when you're floating through the air, 700 degrees into a switch 900, on Volkl's Ledge park ski. Strong, thanks to Volkl's full sidewall construction, but light like feather due to the ash and poplar Multi-Layer core, this jib stick annihilates the park and pipe with smooth, zen-like spins and landings gentler than a Bodhisattva. There's a harder layer of dense ash underfoot for stiffness and binding retention, but supple, poppy poplar wood in the tip and tail to give the Ledge a fun and buttery feel. Camber underfoot lets you carve into icy takeoffs, rockered tips and tails make for smooth and catch-free turn initiation, and the symmetrical twin tip makes riding switch as easy as going frontwards. Softer and easier to handle than its big brother the Step, the Ledge is a killer plank for park riders who are taking their first steps on the road towards freeskiing nirvana.

Well, Volkl heard your cries and brought them back for another winter of pow-slashing, crud-busting, groomer-bashing fun.If you're into powder (is that even a question') two words should stand out from the first paragraph: Full. Rocker. While the Mantra of yore could be overly aggressive in soft snow and tight trees, the full rocker profile combines with a tapered shape to ease things up, making it easier to throw your skis sideways, scrub speed, and have more fun when things get soft and you need to be light on your feet, but you'll be able to vary your turn shapes and open things up when you feel the need for speed and quickly shut them down when things get techy.With all this talk of powder performance, don't start to feel like you're sacrificing hardpack performance. Even though its waist is two millimeters wider than previous iterations, the Mantra uses Volkl's burly, aggressive Power Construction, with a torsion box for stiffness, vertical sidewalls for durability, and a titanium laminate to keep you charging hard, because, after all, it's still a Mantra. There's ash underfoot for power and top-shelf binding retention, with poplar in the tip and tail for a more lively, playful feel. If you find something it can't handle, you're probably trying to use it as a boat, or a machete, or a pair of pants; keep it pointing downhill on the snow, and you'll see why it's such a legend.

Volkl One Ski Volkl One Ski
When you use a little imagination, it's tough not to think of the Volkl One Ski as your beefy, bull-brained bodyguard whose girthy waist and point-and-shoot attitude not only inspire confidence in your big mountain aspirations, but ensure you're up to snuff in terms of performance too. Moreover, the One Ski has a fairly chunky waist coming in hot at 116mm, making it ideal for power-lunching through powder. Also, it boasts a strong poplar and ash core, torsion box wrap, and fiberglass reinforcements that add up to quickness, stability, and all-terrain power. And while the One is a soft-snow ski at heart (typical bodyguard bluff), its full rocker lets you slash and slarve giant, loose turns. However, the Power Tough Box construction keeps the ski stiff, so you can rail hardpack turns like you're on a much narrower plank. A large-radius sidecut means you'll be stable as a table, with none of the high-speed twitchiness that can sometimes plague rockered skis, and the vertical sidewalls make sure the ski doesn't twist or feel squirrely when you're putting it through its paces. The One's tapered tip and tail let you make smooth, catch-free turns in soft snow and on hardpack, too, so you can take it through perfect pow, windbuff, chunder, and hardpack without batting an eyelash.

Plenty of people will have you believe that you need a different ski every time conditions are different, but they've never been on the Volkl RTM 84 Ski. It's an all-mountain ski for experts who don't want their gear to hold them back, but it's not built with a take-no-prisoners attitude--its surprising versatility comes courtesy of the 3D.

Volkl's new 3D. Glass technology places multiple glass layers underfoot to increase edge grip and provide more rebound and responsiveness while you're carving turns. There won't be any fussing around once you get your sticks, either, because Volkl ships them mounted with an iPT Wide Ride XL 12. 0 binding, a bomber clamp that be cranked all the way up to 12 for solid retention and reliable release.

Made to make short work of perfect groomers, leftover crud, trees, bumps, and everything in between, Volkl's RTM 86 UVO Ski is one of the best all-mountain rippers out there, and the fact that it comes with the iPT WR XL 14. 0 Binding just makes this killer board even better. Volkl's RTM (Ride The Mountain) series is a do-it-all benchmark, and even though it's the widest in the family, it's just as edgy, nimble, and versatile as the slimmer models. This is due primarily to Volkl's 3D. Ridge construction, in which the Extended Sensorwood poplar and beech core is milled to be thicker in the middle and tapered towards the edges, giving you plenty of power and stability along with a quick, agile feel that will let you mach down groomers and shimmy through tight spots with equal comfort. 3D sidewalls provide plenty of edging powder, and a single layer of Titanal keeps the RTM damp, stable, and powerful, so you can plow through chunder and push the speed limit when the fresh corduroy is calling. If titanal alone doesn't provide enough dampness for your liking, take note of the RTM's UVO vibration-reduction technology. It might look like a an anonymous bump on your tips, but this ingenious design employs a small counterweight that moves independently of your tips to counter vibration in all directions, so you can ski with smoothness and enjoy reliable turn initiation, not fight your chattering skis through high-speed turns. The RTM also ships with Volkl's iPT WR XL 14. 0 Binding, which is integrated directly into the ski for better feedback and more precise input, so your skis feel like an extension of your feet. The Wide Ride XL footprint is specially designed to help control wider skis and access edges quickly and precisely, so you never have to wait for the ski to bite after you've rolled your ankles into a turn.

Volkl Step Ski Volkl Step Ski
Your days of breakdancing are over. Rather than two-stepping into a freeze, you'd rather use the Volkl Step Ski to ride rails, hit booters, and slay the pipe. You've traded a slab of concrete and a boombox for park-and-pipe skis, metal, snow, and open skies, and we can't blame you, especially considering the benefits the Step lays down. It boasts a stable 85mm waist, letting you stomp the bejeezus out of whatever you line up, both switch and regular, since it's fully symmetrical front to back. Plus, there's plenty camber underfoot so you can rail turns into those icy park takeoffs without worrying about washing out--little surprise that the Step is what Volkl's team riders use when they're not on the competition-ready Wall. With a slight rocker in the tip and tail, the Step is easy to turn and simple enough to ride through chundery snow on the way to your favorite hits. The bomber fiberglass-and-composite-wrapped Tough Box construction can take a beating when you stomp hard, and the multi-layer wood core core gives you a precise ride and harmonious flex while boosting the ski's strength. It incorporates a tough ash layer under the binding for torsional rigidity and binding retention, with poplar in the tip and tails for a light, lively feel that's fun and easy to control. You won't be able to do a head-spin like those breakdancing days, but you'll crush some way cooler tricks on your feet instead.

To ski a ski with less power and precision than the Volkl V-Werks Code UVO Ski would be a direct infringement on the strict code you ski by. You believe in skiing the best of the best, and that is why you rely on the hard-charging reputation of Volkl to keep you carving down the mountain at cheek-flapping speeds with complete confidence in the skis on your feet.Volkl didn't hold back on this one. Instead, Volkl threw in just about all of its ground-breaking technologies, resulting in a ski that's powerful, yet confidence inspiring on the frontside. Being a member of the V-Werks line, the Code sports 3D. Ridge technology, a full carbon jacket, and 3D Profile sidewalls underfoot, which all come together to give the ski a ridiculously lightweight feel, serious power, and the ability to hold an edge on the most knee-jarring boilerplate you encounter. The nimble 75mm waist will instinctively move from edge to edge, requiring very little effort on your part, while the tip and tail rocker only ease turn initiation. It wouldn't be a frontside ski if it didn't have a good amount of camber to link up turns, and in this regard, the Code does not disappoint. Camber underfoot keep the skis hugging tight to the snow, so you can keep your turns tighter than a pair of briefs, while the Sensorwood core gives the ski a responsive and predictable flex, so you can anticipate how the skis will react when you throw them on edge and rail turns like a bullet train.

Being one of the pioneers in the field of hard-charging, lightweight, carbon skis, the V-Werks Katana returns with its carbon fiber layup and multi wood core--a combination that results in a 15% weight reduction over the non-carbon Katana of yesteryear--the result of which is a ski that loses some weight without sacrificing an ounce of power or performance, sounds like a fair shake, right'The Katana was already a powerhouse. Its moderately girthy waist, wide tip and tail, full rocker profile, and consistent and responsive flex put it in a category that toed the line between a freeride ski and an all-mountain slayer. The V-Werks version of the Katana features a full carbon jacket along the core to improve torsional rigidity, reduce weight while keeping the milled wood core thin and low to the ski. All said and done, the Katana morphed from a versatile all-mountain, freeride ski to one destined for big-mountain touring with its addition to the Volkl's V-Werks collection.Although it has the same weight-saving, performance-enhancing technology of Volkl's other V-Werks skis, the V-Werks Katana is more of a big-mountain touring ski than a performance carver. Its ultralight construction make this ski lighter than the standard Katana; although, the two share the same dimensions and rocker profile. While Volkl offers three skis that are fatter and more rockered than the V-Werks Katana (the, One, Two, and AK-sized Three respectively), the Katana offers a cutting-edge balance of stiffness, floatation, stability, weight, and outright maneuverability.

Finding a ski that's stiff and powerful but still super playful can be a tall order to fill. Most skis will either be so playful they feel like a couple of noodles in anything but deep pow or so stiff they'll lock you into your turn without leaving much wiggle room to get creative with your line. But, what you'll find with the Whitedot Director Ski is that both can coexist, and it really is a beautiful thing. With a revamped rocker profile, increased effective edge, and a versatile 107mm waist, the Director is a true all-mountain shcralper that will change the way you see and ski the mountain.Whitedot is on its fourth year of making skis, and the company has already earned a reputation of producing fun and progressively shaped boards. The Director is arguably the most versatile in Whitedot's impressive quiver, and its full rocker profile with no camber underfoot make it a playful ski that will float pow, skid turns on the hardpack, and squiggle through the trees with ease. The Director gets its stiff feel from a sandwich construction that places carbon/KEVLAR stringers through the ski--this results in a stiff flex pattern that will keep the ski stable at speed and solid when conditions turn variable. The core reflects the Director's overall stiff and playful nature with light and poppy poplar wood at the tips and tails, and stiff ash underfoot for better binding retention. Rubber foil dampening tape placed just above the edges helps reduce vibrations through the skis for a more solid feel at high speeds, while High Speed Precision sintered bases ensure a fast and durable surface to launch your all-mountain assault.

Whitedot Preacher Carbonlite Ski Whitedot Preacher Carbonlite Ski
There's a lot of ski talk in the lift line, on the chair, and in the bar after a day of shredding. One dude's talking about how he'd be a pro if only his skis were better, another's saying how his girlfriend made him choose between her and his planks and he doesn't miss her at all, and a third is spraying about how he has 163 pairs of skis to choose from on any given day and isn't that awesome' Chances are, though, that none of these ski-bags is talking about Whitedot's Preacher Ski, because it they knew about it they'd stop moaning and let their riding speak for itself. As everything gets steadily more rockered, finding a bomber directional ski that can handle itself in soft snow becomes a tougher and tougher task. The Preacher is a breath of fresh (or stale') air with full-length camber and a decent amount of sidecut to help you shred comp lines, blast through crud, and tear variable snow to bits. Whitedot calls it an, "oversized all-mountain ski," and we think that's a pretty apt description, because while the camber and sidecut help you rail turns through chunder, the powder-friendly 112mm waist and wide tapered tip give you the footprint to float through the soft stuff and stay steady at freeride-comp speeds. The tip also lets you ride with your weight forward, so you can make the most of the ski's edginess, and doesn't hook up prematurely in soft snow, so you don't have to worry about getting bucked. The shape is key, but it's the guts of the Preacher that really make it go. Whitedot built it on a poplar and ash core--poplar for durability and elasticity, ash for strength and spring--and it laid down triaxial fiberglass laminates and carbon KEVLAR stringers for increased torsional stiffness and pop, respectively. By finishing this sandwich with ABS sidewalls, Whitedot gave the Preacher bomber edge-to-edge stiffness, so it won't twist and feel squirrely under serious edging pressure. The company also hooked the ski up with wrap-around steel edges and a sinte...

The R 108 Ski is Whitedot's most versatile all-mountain ski with a propensity for playing through powder in the resort or backcountry. Its 108mm waist works best in softer snow, but it's not so wide that it won't be able to handle a bit of wind buff or hardpack. Whitedot added minimal camber underfoot to give you proper edge control, just in case you come across snow a little firmer than desired. Being a powder-friendly plank, the R 108 sports a heavily rockered tip to help you navigate deep powder both uphill and downhill. Whitedot built the core with vertically placed poplar and ash woods for a stunning combination of superlight comfort on the uphill and poppy performance on the downhill. Triaxle carbon and fiberglass laminates stiffen the R 108 for better control at higher speeds, and they keep the R 108 at a relatively slim weight of four pounds per ski. The R 108 boasts a durable ABS sidewall construction, and there's an aluminum tail notch for fixing climbing skins.
