K2 Reckoner 112 Skis · 2022
Lively, energetic, and yet still predictable. Excels in the soft stuff with a flex pattern made for powder and creative skiing all over the mountain. The fatter cousin of the more narrow reckoners that are very freestyle focused. A twin tip ski a lively aspen core that is mixed with a more damp and stable fir. This is a PNW classic meant for hunting powder stashes and still hitting butters and riding switch while you're at it. A well rounded and super playful ski for those that never want a boring day.
Salomon QST Blank Skis · 2023
This is a phenomenal big mountain ski for powder performance! Fun and playful. Light but can still charge the crud and chop between powder stashes.
K2 Mindbender 116C Skis · 2022
Super wide for float, but still stout and stable for firm days, or just bombing the cat tracks back to the lift. While a bit wide for true all mountain skiing, the 116 is a fantastic freeride choice for the playful skier. Best suited for deep, wide, and fast skiing, the 116 loves to be pointed down the fall line and ripped around the biggest lines and pillows on the hill.
These have SUPREME flotation in powder, but with plenty of edge hold, you'll still be able to have a fun time rippin down some groomers! These have a maple and paulownia core for the ideal blend of power, energy, and lightweight performance. Not to mention the DOOOPE graphic!!
Black Crows Ferox Freebird Skis · 2021
The most playful shape of the Freebird line. These are a a lightweight touring specific big mountain ski, with 110 mm underfoot. The added width will definitely help in deep powder. Still these skis charge in hard snow and do remarkably well for a lightweight ski at this width. Still pretty easy to maneuver, especially if you have good technique.
These guys are 110 underfoot and light but still maintaining the feel of an alpine ski, no chatter. You'll feel confident on the way down and light for your turns. These are a DREAM to tour on. These can handle anything you throw at them, and then some!
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 Foundation 112 RP Skis · 2022
These are the ultimate powder oriented skis for chasing the best snow in-resort, from the Alps to the Appalachians to the Rockies! DPS is known for making top of the line skis through using aerospace materials and construction processes. These skis are easy to turn, plane up on powder almost instantly.
They use a 45% tip and tail rocker with a 55% effective edge length along the ski to provide the best performance in powder but with the edge hold to rip down the groomers in the afternoon. The core combines bamboo and poplar for longevity and pop.
These skis are DPS's answer to deep powder skiing that needs to be done nimbly. With a 15m radius, the DPS Foundation is built to turn on a dime. This makes for a ski that can weave through trees and make that last minute essential turn when needed. Furthermore, the bamboo poplar wood core creates a springy and playful ski that is geared toward bouncing around in fresh snow.
Great for powder skiing, and versatile enough for all-mountain as well. At 112mm underfoot these skis will go anywhere, and they are lightweight for a full day of skiing. They have great float in powder without sacrificing performance on the hardpack.
Line Outline Skis · 2022
The convex base contouring in the tips and tails make it easier than ever to float and play above the deep snow in a buttery and very smooth fashion. Even better, they still perform on chandler, chop and any other variable of not so great snow. They’re even fun on groomers! This is such a fun ski that is the true definitely of all mountain, big mountain and a powder ski!
DPS Pagoda Tour 112 RP Skis · 2022
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!
Nordica Enforcer 110 Free Skis · 2023
Hitting everywhere on the mountain. From charging corduroy to slashing pow in the trees, these skis will take you there. Metal laminate will keep things stable in firm conditions, but the tips are flexible enough to plane up in powder.
Extremely damp, smooth, and stable in ungroomed terrain and variable snow conditions while holding up well at higher speeds - this ski is a hard charging big mountain option that can still hold its edge!
Moment Wildcat Skis · 2023
Sidewall construction that won't blow out after a few hard tumbles, thick 2.2mm edges for maximum strength against hidden dangers, and Moustache Rocker so it can charge forwards or backwards.
DPS Pagoda 112 RP Skis · 2023
Built with aerospace carbon and a multi wood core that is horizontally layered to dampen the ski and give you play with loads of energy. The Pagoda will provide effortless turns for a balance of resort and backcountry with everything in between. The Pagoda has a 15m turn radius which is extremely unique to a ski this size. If you want one of the best made skis, DPS is the way to go!
Icelantic Maiden 111 Skis · Women's · 2022
The Maiden 111 is a women's specific powder surfer that will give you floatation in any amount of powder you find yourself in. Lightweight core with fiberglass construction provides durability and responsiveness that will allow you to blast through powder, crud, and link some turns together as you cruise back to the lift. Incredible graphic on these ladies too!
Moment Deathwish Tour 112 Skis · 2022
Triple camber brings the magic - more edge contact, more suspension, and more versatility. Super surfy ski, plenty of grip. Truly versatile backcountry ski for anything the mountain decides to throw at you!
K2 Mindbender 115C Alliance Skis · Women's · 2022
Despite its size, the Mindbender 115C is a versatile all-mountain ski, but it especially shines in deep, deep powder. K2 combined a poppy and playful Aspen wood core with their patented Carbon spectral braid, which gives the ski added strength and stability, but without the added weight of something like metal. The generous rocker in the tip and tail makes the ski super surfy and playful in deep snow, but the carbon braid also gives it strong edge hold on groomers. An awesome powder weapon that does surprisingly well on every other aspect of the mountain.
Head Kore 117 Skis · 2021
Deep snow and an all-mountain ski, the Kore series from Head is a go-to for free-ride skiers for a reason. Plenty of rocker in tip and tail to help you float in deep snow. Graphene in the tip stiffens it up in deep snow. The honeycomb core will give nice bounce and pop and charge through choppier snow.
