Ideal Target Skier: Progressing Intermediate: This skier is pushing the limits of the intermediate badge, and getting off trail and figuring out how to get comfortable at higher speeds through variable terrain.
Skier Ability: Beginner to Lower Intermediate: Skiing greens and blues at slower speeds.
Offset Graphics: The graphics may not be exactly centered on this ski. This does not change its performance or warranty coverage. It just means that the skiers that need perfect graphics might want to find a different pair.
Sandwich Construction (SW): SW means that the sides of the skis are a vertical wall rather the rounded Cap construction found on most skis. Since none of the skis material needs to be exerting force maintaining shape at the edges, SW skis are stiffer than their Cap counterparts. Most people find SW skis to be damper, that is more glued to the snow, superior at high speed GS turns and top notch at busting through crud or choppy snow.
Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.
Twin tip skis: are where its at these days. Their versatility allows you to ski powder in the morning, bumps at midday, and session the park in the afternoon. The turned up tail is also optimal for skiing backwards (switch), but for most people, it just looks cool.
We are NOT recommending this ski for hard-core park riding. This is a great all mountain ski for intermediate skiers. If you are looking for a ski you can destroy the park with, check out some of our other park skis.
