Deep Snow & Powder Skis

2013 Nordica Helldorado

Helldorado 185

Ski Maki

Pros: high speed control, floatation, turn ease in tight spaces, weight to bust through crud, great mountain ski

Cons: I got in the back seat a couple of times not sure if the rockered tails might contribute?

Bought these from the rental shop manager at Bridger Bowl two days before 13 inches of new snow during wind blown mixed conditions.   They were a great deal at $300 and came with Marker demo bindings.  I changed out of my Rossignal Pursuits and brought them to the top of the mountain.  The skis were great in the choppy mixed conditions allowing high speed...

2008 DPS Lotus 138 Ski

The patent pending Lotus 138 is the first deeply rockered ski with minimal sidecut underfoot. First released in 2005, it has since gone through three rocker evolutions and two flex pattern changes. The goal has been to create ski that promotes early planing, incredible power across the fall line, and unmatched creativity in turn shape.

2008 Praxis Powder Boards

2008 Praxis Powder Boards

“The Praxis Powder Boards are my favorite skis. I own the 185cm rides. I ripped through 3 or 4 pair of Spatula's when they first came out, then I got a pair of the Praxis Powder Boards. These things kill it. They are by far the toughest skis I have in my Quiver. They make your day so much more fun. You can stomp huge fast airs and slow down for the silly traverse that is always below the biggest...” --freeridetahoe

2008 Volkl Kuro Ski

“ MY BACKGROUND: I have been skiing since I was 11 and skied about 30-45 times a year from the time I was 12 till I was about 18 (when I went into the military).

This was...” --fuscopd

2009 4FRNT Skis EHP

“All I can say is WOW! The EHP rips the powder and crud like a race ski rips hard pack. I have the 179s and am stoked on the ability to make quick turns in the trees and tight spots in heavy snow. I spend more time than ever before looking for stashes of freshies and hiking to the soft stuff. I mounted on the factory boot center line and construction is top shelf. If I could change one thing it...” --liftie

Do a couple of steep n deep runs on the Atomic Big Daddy Ski and you might decide to pick your prom date up in these super fat powder beasts instead of borrowing your dad s Caddy. Atomic built these boats to be stiffer than the average powder ski so you can bomb the sketchy steeps harder than the Bush family bombs oil-producing nations. This ski only comes in one size huge, so don t climb into...

2009 Atomic Thug

2009 Atomic Thug

Skiing a plank that s 140 at the shovel is like trying to dunk your pudgy cousin in the pool it s nearly impossible to make it sink. The insane surface area of the Atomic Thug Ski floats you to the top of the snowy sea as you pounce pillows, cut switch lines, and throw nose butter 5s off of cornices, making you feel like the captain of a really big (yet highly maneuverable) speed boat. A snappy...
