The Curated Take
The DPS Pagoda Tour 112 skis are excellent for advanced to expert backcountry skiers seeking lightweight, wide skis for powder days. Their carbon and wood construction offers high-speed stability without sacrificing lightness, making uphill treks faster and downhill rides floaty and playful. Despite their stiffness, which aids aggressive skiing, their wide width (112mm underfoot) hinders carving efficiency and restricts their versatility on groomers and icy days. Nonetheless, their durability and performance in deep snow make them a worthy investment for those who prioritize powder skiing.
- Great float in powder
- Super lightweight for uphill treks
- Very responsive
- Too wide to be able to hold an edge easily
- Only handles very well in powder
- Very stiff, not great for newer skiers or intermediates
