Faction Ski Candide 2.0 Skis Black
The epitome of a 'do-it-all' ski. The Candides, just like their namesake, are primed to tackle park laps, pow, and anything in between. A medium turn radius makes it nice in the trees or picking down technical lines and still super fun when ripping up groomers. This ski is great all around the mountain, soft enough to plow through crud but still feels solid under foot. Charges through the big mountain and trees, but isn't afraid of taking park laps.
The Candide 2.0 is one of the better all-mountain options that we have today. This ski can take you just about anywhere while still being able to show off in the park. Nimble yet stable when you need it to be and capable of floating you down your favorite powder stash.
Nordica Enforcer 100 Skis · 2021
These have more Titanal® in their core than other skis on the market — so they'll take more punishment. They also have a bit of a twin tip, so if you have to keep an eye on others, you won't be as worried if you have to ski backward for a few turns.
They're incredibly versatile, and for someone who needs a ski that works in any area, you can't go wrong with these.
Nordica designed the enforcer line up with a freeride rider in mind. These have a slight twin tip for the occasional switch rider. Now with the early rise, this ski is surprisingly maneuverable in the powder. The 100mm underfoot is a proper balance between a groomer ski and a powder ski. This is a very good choice if you're looking for a daily jammer.
Tip and tail rocker along with the 100mm width underfoot mean these guys can handle a powder day, but they also really shine on firmer snow, where they're known for their stability and can arc a turn as well as any competitor.
Blizzard Rustler 10 Skis
The Rustler 10 is a playful ski that thrives in soft off-piste conditions, but metal underfoot gives it some chops in firmer conditions as well. At 104mm underfoot, this ski floats extremely well in powder due to its rocker profile and lighter tips and tails, but it's still fun to carve and can hold an edge when you need it to. With its lightweight build and forgiving flex, this ski is quick and nimble and is great for moguls and trees.
A nice all-around ski. 102 is a very versatile waist width. This ski can go anywhere on the mountain. Easy to ride, stiff enough to punch through ice and crud, yet playful enough to enjoy it in the powder! Stiff underfoot, yet playful into the tip and tail, this ski will keep a smile on your face from the groomers to the powder and everything in between! The metal underfoot gives you a great edge hold to ensure worry-free carving!
The Rustler line has metal underfoot, but not in the tip/tail. The result is a ski that can carve really well on groomers, but is pretty lightweight overall and has nice flex at the ends that let it be really maneuverable in trees, bumps, powder.
Nordica Enforcer 104 Free Skis · 2021
This ski has two sheets of metal but doesn't feel overly stiff like a ski with two sheets of metal would. At 104 underfoot, a very versatile ski. Can rail the early morning groomers and will then go to the back bowls and handle the bumped up crud. There is enough tip rocker to float when the fresh snow comes in too.
This ski has a powder rocker/camber profile that allows it to make the transition from keeping you afloat on an early morning pow mission to being able to edge on hardpack and groomers. There is enough backbone in this ski to hold its own at speed but it's also poppy and playful when need be.
It is a relatively heavy and damp ski that is more suited for directional skiers. It carves incredibly well for its width and has the stability to ski any snow type. The 2021 model gets some tweaks, but previous iterations have won numerous awards from magazines and review sites!
Blizzard Sheeva 10 Skis
This ski is great off-piste and has a relatively short turn radius. (This makes turning super easy when it gets tight in the trees and bumps!) It has great stability at speed and really charges all over the mountain. Not to mention these skis rule in the deep stuff, no matter where you take these, you are bound to have a top-notch time.
Float! With the wider underfoot and soft tips and tails, the Sheevas will be a dream come true in the powder. The metal laminate is light enough that you can still make this a touring ski and strong enough that you won't be sacrificing any stability.
Going from on-piste to off-piste without even thinking about it. Metal laminate underfoot makes this very very stable at speed, but not heavy. And it's wide enough for great powder performance as well.
Rossignol Blackops Sender Ski
The Sender is a new lightweight 104mm underfoot ski from Rossignol. Compared to the metal-laminated Sender TI, the Sender has a more forgiving flex and is considerably lighter, making for a more playful and maneuverable ski. With its wide tips and tails this ski initiates turns easily and is a blast to carve, and the balanced flex pattern provides a smooth ride and good stability at speed.
Awesome brand new ski from Rossignol that performs incredibly well in all conditions. Not too heavy, but has enough weight behind it to feel very stable with no tip chatter at high speed. Carves extremely well on groomers and hardpack while also charging in post-storm powder and leftover soft stuff.
High speed long turns or tight tree pivoting. Very capable even at slow speeds—as long as you're thinking of where you'd like to be, the Senders will go.
Faction Ski Candide 2.0 X Skis Black
Faction has some really innovative ski engineering that enable their skis to do it all! The poplar and beech core is light and poppy for sending it off a jump, but maintain enough stiffness to connect carving turns on the mountain. Faction integrates a titanal layer under the binding to reinforce the ski where it's most useful and provide a solid mounting point for your bindings. These skis also feature an extra thick edge which adds to the durability and overall last of the ski.
The perfect ski for a freestyle skier looking to push the boundaries inbounds. With a full twin tip the Candides are perfect for the park but also have the stability to be an all-mountain ski.
This ski is designed to ski the whole mountain while jumping off everything you possibly can. It is moderately stiff which is great for forgiveness while allowing you to ski fast.
Liberty Evolv100 Skis · 2021
Great, lightweight ski that is approachable, and designed in CO for skiers everywhere. The Evolv has some great technology in it, including VMT that makes the ski stiff, but not too aggressive if you're taking smooth turns with the family. The ski for someone looking for something a bit more traditional, but one that doesn't lack on performance, power or carving ability with an all mountain waist width.
With a combination of bamboo, poplar, aluminum alloy and carbon in the core construction of the ski. These things are strong and stiff without adding too much weight. The early rise tip will keep the tip on top of the fresh powder while camber underfoot to the flat tail will hold a serious edge on groomers and packed snow
Fantastic maneuverability and all mountain, all snow condition performance. Very popular ski for Colorado and Utah skiers who want float in the powder without sacrificing edge control on the groomer outruns and packed powder days!
DPS Wailer A112 RP Skis
Skiing up high on the mountain, everything from trees and moguls to the back country. This ski is unlike any other, I can't say enough great things about it. With a tight turn radius this ski is excellent for picking through tight couloirs and trees, has the stability to charge down anything at high speed, and is an absolute dream in deep snow. The carbon reinforcement throughout the ski makes it super bouncy and easy to load up and keeps any chatter at a minimum.
100 underfoot and lightweight. These skis are incredibly sturdy for how light they are, and the smooth flex makes for an intuitive ride. These are supremely versatile. Rocker tip and tail, and easy to quick-turn and pivot when needed.
These are the best of the best when it comes to fat touring skis but you do pay for it. They are the lightest in their class and ski really well.
DPS 112rp Pagoda Tour Skis Orange
Impressively, these skis have a 15m turning radius, tail and tip rocker that still leaves you with about 55% of an effective edge. These skis will float like a dream, help you blaze the trail for the rest of the group, and save energy on the ascent. DPS uses ash and paulownia woods, with carbon laminate and aerospace foam to give this ski incredible performance and durability without adding weight!
