The Candide 1. 0 Ski from Faction is redesigned this year to be livelier, snappier, and burlier than ever. Carbon fiber reinforcements through the skis add power and responsiveness to your turns. To make these bad boys capable of standing up to the abuse of park and urban riding, Faction used 2. 5mm thick steel edges, so they won't blow out on you. A symmetrical sidecut and camber underfoot lets you pop, spin, and land however you choose. At 90mm underfoot, these are perfect for the pipe and park, but if the snow is falling and your friends are spinning laps through waist-deep fluff, these will give you enough float to still show them what's up.

Built for long tours with big vert, the Atomic Backland Aspect Ski is for the backcountry enthusiast seeking excellent uphill performance and power on the downhill. Weighing just under six pounds per pair in the 170cm length, the Aspect keeps your legs fresh for the downhill and ready for another couple of laps on a powder day. The Aspect can accredit its weight savings mainly to the Ultralite Woodcore, a combination of poplar and caruba woods that provide a light yet stable platform for the descent. All the skis within the Backland series were designed to perform in any condition, and that can be seen in the incredibly versatile Aspect. Utilizing both camber underfoot and rocker in the tip, it provides edge hold on icy and hardpack conditions and will still float in the powder. In order to increase the agility and stability of the ski, Atomic laid a carbon backbone throughout the length of the ski, so you can open it up with confidence in those wide open bowls and aprons. The Step Down Sidewall construction has full sidewall underfoot for stability at speed, and cap at the tip and tail to keep the weight down. This is going to be the ski of choice for the skier who spends the majority of his or her time in the backcountry covering lots of country and logging in vert throughout the season despite the conditions.
Incorporating some of the same technology that Rossignol gave to their World Cup skis, the Zymax Skate Ski is fast training and racing ski that won't cost you an arm and a couple of legs. Made with a light Premium LDC low-density wood core that's reinforced with basalt fibers, the Zymax has a friendly flex in the tip and tail to make the ski easier for lighter users, and Rossi's Racing Cobra sidecut that widens in the tip for a stable, precise push-off. Active Cap technology combines flexible materials with stiff a multi-directional fiberglass laminate, allowing the Zymax to coil when flexed and rebound when released, driving the skier forward on fast K7000 bases, the same bases found on Rossignol's World Cup skis. The Zymax is also a directional, tracking marvel, thanks to the aforementioned fiberglass laminate that keeps it torsionally stiff, and a double-groove base to fight wandering ski syndrome. It also comes with an NIS plate that's compatible with NNN bindings, allowing simple, drill-free mounting and adjustment.
Groomed trails and spandex are not your style; neither are ultralight, ultra-skinny, ultra-fragile nordic skis. You're a backcountry explorer, maybe a little bit crazy, but ready for adventure, and the Alpina Discovery 110 Touring Ski is what's going to take you there. With a 66mm waist and a generous sidecut, the 110 is Alpina's widest backcountry nordic ski, and it is about as stable and powerful as a ski that's built for pure downhill. But that's not to say it won't tackle uphills with aplomb, as it has a Sollte SS810 waxless base for easy and free gliding on flats or downhills and balanced control and forward-moving efficiency going up. Alpina gave the Discovery steel edges for stable grip on hard snow, ice, and in variable or unpredictable conditions. A polyurethane core provides smooth flex while maintaining the rigidity and power that your backcountry nordic excursions demand. A polyamide topsheet adds a layer of tough durability.
When you have a love for something as deep and ardent as yours for pristine pow, the right ski for optimal lovin' is imperative. The hike-ready Volkl Nanuq Ski is lightweight enough for marathon laps but has a mid-fat waist for float and stability. A tip rocker makes turn-entry a breeze and prevents tip dive in deep snow. The Nanuq has a wide-radius sidecut for letting loose when you get to a beautiful wide-open bowl and really want to go nuts. Perhaps the most versatile of the Volkl backcountry skis, it's still quick edge-to-edge thanks to its traditional camber and stiff torsion box. Plus, the proprietary Skin Pin attachment system let you get snap the pre-cut matching skin off in a hurry so you get your pick of lines.
It takes a lot of work to ski the whole mountain with confidence, but the Rossignol Experience 84 Ski makes things a whole lot easier and more fun. It's built to handle soft snow, groomers, hardpack, and ice from the Appalachians to the Rockies to the Sierras, with an intermediate 84mm waist and extended sidecut that engages more aggressively the faster you go, letting you hold a super-solid edge at speed and pivot with ease when you decide to rein things in a little bit. The Auto Turn Rocker's also designed to make ripping everything you point the Experience at completely intuitive, with high camber underfoot for top-shelf edge hold and mild rocker in the tip and tail to smooth out uneven snow, plane through powder, and turn on a dime. Even though it's decked out with carbon fiber and fiberglass laminates to keep it reasonably stiff and aggressive, the Experience 84 weighs in at under eight pounds, tying the much smaller Experience 77 and 75 for the distinction of lightest ski in Rossignol's all-mountain line. The super-light Paulownia wood core has a lot to do with this, as does the honeycomb-style Air Tip, which has been cribbed from Rossignol's famous 7 Series skis to reduce swing weight, improve flotation, and eliminate the tip vibration that can plague rockered skis. The Experience is also built with Maxicap sandwich construction, which combines a lightweight cap design with partial sidewalls for an ideal balance of weight and edge grip, so you can shred whatever terrain you feel like without a second thought.
When tonight's storm has you dreaming about tomorrow's faceshots, you better make sure you have the Blizzard Cochise Ski packed and ready to go. With a 108mm waist and a rockered tip and tail, the Cochise lets you float over pow and crud with vigor and initiate turns like a champ. When the storm lets up and your dreams of bottomless pow don't pan out, the Cochise still has you covered, as slight camber underfoot lets you make solid, powerful turns on hardpack. The versatile waist combines with innovative Flipcore design in which Blizzard inserted the ski's core into the mold upside-down, giving it a natural tip and tail rocker rather than pressing it unnaturally into shape like most of the skis on the market. What does this mean for you? It means snappy, intuitive edge control on groomers and fluid flex and turn initiation anywhere. It also means excellent stability and even pressure distribution. The Cochise's multi-wood core provides smooth flex for all kinds of playful feel out of this kickass ski.
Skiing isn't always about nipple-deep pow days and faceshots, so when the crowds are gone and park is cleared, reach for your Rossignol Storm Skis and make it rain. This ski keeps it real with full high camber for high-speed turns and confident edge hold in icy half-pipes. A versatile 92-millimeter waist provides a wide enough platform for all-mountain carving but is still nimble enough to spin in the park. Minicap construction reduces swing weight without sacrificing durability or strength, and the Jib Tip technology gives the tips and tails a more rounded design for smoother transitions and easier switch skiing.

Counting sheep is boring, so you count spins, kinks, and corks to help you fall asleep, and it's no coincidence that you spend most nights cuddling the Icelantic Da'Nollie Ski. It's been redesigned for 14/15, with a wider platform (95mm underfoot) to ease powder landings and increase stomping surface area, along with a rockered tip and tail that make it easy to butter, ride switch, and venture out of the park and into the freshies. Like all Icelantics, the Da'Nollie's available in fairly short lengths and tight turn radii, making the ski nimbler and reducing swing weight without compromising stability and performance at speed. Icelantic's Nollie Flex wood core provides a strong, flexible, and poppy platform for buttering, ollieing, and popping off every little feature you find, while fiberglass laminates offer enough stiffness to rally comfortably at speed without weighing you down when you decide to go airborne. The Da'Nollie wouldn't be an Icelantic board if it didn't have the company's signature Travis Parr graphics and rugged crystal-clear Carbonium topsheets, which are complemented by 2. 2mm steel edges and a lightning-quick Durasurf 4001 sintered base. The only drawback? You won't be able to blame your skis anymore when you bail.
We all love our fatty pow skis on the deep days, but they don't make a whole lot of sense as an everyday ski. So, whether you're looking to give your quiver a little more rounding or looking for a do-it-all workhorse, the K2 Shreditor 102 Ski will give you that free-ride feel you love so much in a narrow and nimble hard-snow-oriented design. All-terrain rocker gives your tip and tail a lift over new snow, chopped crud, and wind-buff while the camber underfoot provides stable edge-to-edge transfer on the hardpack and groomed runs. The aspen and paulownia wood core has the lively flex patterns you'd expect from a wood core, but with K2's Triaxial braid (weaved strands of fiberglass around the core), the ski has the torsional strength for stability at high speeds on hard snow. The Twintech sidewall wraps the topsheet partially around the sidewall, reducing wear along the edge and preventing your topsheet from chipping off so your sticks look mint all season long. The tapered tip and tail increases control when you're coming out of a turn and lets you scrub speed quickly when that tree sneaks up on you. K2 threw in its skin grommet attachment, so if you decide to do some backcountry stuff, you can get a seamless skin-to-ski attachment.
For years, the Volkl Mantra's been the gold standard for all-mountain edge grip--you could point it at anything and let 'er rip, but it was a ski that always wanted to be driving a hard edge. The combo of power, precision, and width made for a wonderfully versatile quiver-of-one ski, but always left a niggling feeling that you were missing out on some of the powder-munching, turn-smearing fun of surfier, more forgiving boards. This year? Not so much. Kiss those hangups goodbye and say hello to the new Mantra, a slightly fatter, fully rockered all-mountain animal that has all the aggressive, hard-charging instincts of the original, tempered with a dose of pure pow lovin'. If you're into powder (is that even a question?) two words should stand out from the first paragraph: Full. Rocker. While the old Mantra could be overly aggressive in soft snow and tight trees, the new profile combines with a tapered tip to ease things up, making it easier to throw your skis sideways, scrub speed, and have more fun when things get soft and you need to be light on your feet--you'll be able to vary your turn shapes, opening things up when you feel the need for speed and shutting them down when things get techy. Don't worry about sacrificing hardpack performance, though. Even though its waist is two millimeters wider than previous iterations, the Mantra uses Volkl's burly, aggressive Power Construction, with a torsion box for stiffness, vertical sidewalls for durability, and a titanium laminate to keep you charging hard, because, after all, it's still a Mantra. There's ash underfoot for power and top-shelf binding retention, with poplar in the tip and tail for a more lively, playful feel. If you find something it can't handle, you're probably trying to use it as a boat, or a machete, or a pair of pants; keep it pointing downhill on the snow, and you'll see why it's such a legend.
Sprint up the skin track with the lightweight Voile Vector BC Ski and begin hunting for the sweetest stashes, coolest lines, and most technical couloirs. With the same dimensions and construction as the regular Vector, the Vector BC's a do-it-all ski with one important difference: the addition of an underfoot fishscale climbing pattern, which lets you handle moderate ascents without taking skins out of your pack. You'll still want them for steeper climbs, but if you're spending time in rolling terrain, the Vector BC's going to be your weapon of choice. The win-win-win combo of a rockered tip, slightly raised tail, and traditional camber underfoot lets you lay down a solid edge on hardpack, float through the freshies, and rally through crud without breaking a sweat--after all, backcountry terrain can change with the slightest difference in aspect, time, and elevation, so you need to ready for all of it. The Vector BC was also built with Voile's legendary lightweight construction, making it superlight, tough, and stable, while its cap construction reduces weight for quick climbing and easy maneuverability in tight spots. Voile topped the core off with a carbon fiberglass laminate to add some stiffness and power without making things heavy, and kept the Vector BC's waist wide enough for knee-deep pow and crud without sacrificing stability. Finally, the BC's semi-wide-radius sidecut gives you high-speed stability when you're ripping down tight tree runs or charging down wide open bowls, giving it versatility that most alpine and nordic-touring-style skis just can't match.
A pow-crushing, pillow-stomping, big-mountain gun, Armada's Magic J Ski is Tanner Hall's powder ski of choice for obvious reasons. By beefing up the dimensions of the JJ and moving the contact point forward, you get the same ease of turning and high-speed stability of the JJ, but in a wider platform that is able to handle the ultra-deep days and work their way down pillow lines with ease. Equipped with an EST Freeride Rocker profile (rockered tip and tail with regular camber underfoot), these bad boys allow for smooth, fast, sweeping turns down big lines or long groomer runs. Armada is all about durability and ensuring the life of its skis, so it gave the Js a Hybrid Ultralight wood core and AR50 sandwich sidewall construction for a high strength-to-weight ratio that you can count on when you're charging down floaty pillow lines, variable snow, or through technical early-season conditions. These all-mountain destroyers also have Laminate Matrix technology (directional layering of fiberglass) that provides a smooth, even flex pattern and torsional rigidity for stellar performance in a variety of snow conditions and terrain. In addition, you'll be grateful for the lightweight, strong 1. 7mm edges that have been heat treated for durability and 50/50 bases that offer a just-right blend of speed and durability.
The Alpina Discovery 90 Touring Ski is a versatile cross country ski ready for your off-trail explorations. As the middle-width ski in Alpina's Discovery backcountry Nordic lineup, the 90 sports a 70mm waist. That is plenty of width to get yourself off the beaten path but not so much that it resembles a clunky alpine ski more suited for the chairlifts than the trails. Steel edges provide stable grip on hard snow, ice, and in variable or unpredictable conditions. Alpina gave the Discovery a Sollte SS810 waxless base for easy and free gliding on flats or downhills while maintaining balanced control and forward-moving efficiency on the uphills. A poplar wood core provides fluid and easy flex, which means the ski will handle for you rather than you having to muscle the ski to do your bidding. A polyamide topsheet adds a layer of tough durability for many years of use.
It's probably not a bad thing when a ski is named after, and largely influenced by, the skiing of one of the all-time great skiers--and that's certainly the case with the K2 Coomback 104 Ski. In the world of backcountry skiing, few names evoke as much praise as that of Doug Coombs, so it should come as no surprise that this signature ski is perfectly fit for his style of skiing: big, aggressive lines, often deep in the backcountry. The 104mm waist width will let you float serenely down big powder lines, and the paulownia and maple woods core keeps things light and poppy so you can have fun on the way down as well. In order to give plenty of stability for a lightweight ski, K2 used a Torsion Box system in conjunction with its Hybritech sidewall, so you don't have to worry about blowing out an edge when you're four days into your yurt trip. In order to facilitate use as an anchor or an emergency sled, K2 gave this ski a flat tail that can easily be plunged into the snow as a sort of "extra-picket."
Fancy yourself a mountain-shredding black belt? Do your damage with the Volkl Kendo Ski, which slices and dices the whole mountain with the precision of a samurai's blade. Volkl married an 89mm waist to traditional underfoot camber to create a ski that won't back down from any ice-coast face or Rocky Mountain hardpack, and laid it up with titanium to give you plenty of power when you need to rail your turns. The Kendo also uses Volkl's trademark Power Construction, with features a torsion box and vertical sidewalls to enhance the ski's stiffness and durability. Although it would be an excellent daily driver for eastern rippers, the Kendo's not a traditional carving ski. It's plenty wide enough to eat up the occasional shot of power, and has been outfitted with tip rocker to help it cruise over rough snow, ease turn initiation, and ride consistently in all snow conditions. Volkl also hooked the Kendo up with a multi-layer wood core, which features stiff ash underfoot to improve binding retention and power, with lively poplar in the tips and tails for playfulness and easy maneuvering. East coasters looking for an everyday rippers or western shredders who need a do-it-all ski for the hardpack, the Kendo's your new weapon of choice,
Peanut butter and chocolate. Beer and pretzels. Ice and cream. Some things are too good to mess with, and you can add the Volkl Gotama Ski to the list. It's a big-mountain ski dressed up like a do-it-all charger, and it might well be the only thing you'll need to have in your quiver this winter. At 107mm underfoot, the "Goat" is plenty wide for all but the deepest pow days, and it has the ELP (Extended Low Profile) rocker to prove it. The rocker profile is designed to compliment the ski's flex and sidecut, so it's incredibly easy to get full edge contact when you roll your ski up and try to lock into a turn. This makes the Gotama a serious performer on the hardpack, even though its dimensions would suggest it's more at home in the soft stuff. Of course, it still floats like a butterfly when you're in a pow-gobbling mood. You can drive it hard no matter where you're riding, though, courtesy of a Power/Tough Box construction that uses stiff ash underfoot and lively poplar in the tip and tail, with a fiberglass and composite sheath around the ash for plenty of stiffness and power where you need it. This helps to prevent binding pull-outs, too, so you don't have to worry about hammering a turn and looking down to find that your ski isn't attached to your binding anymore. You won't find a tougher, more exciting do-it-all big-mountain ski around.
