Meier Skis Double Barrel (2013)
The Double Barrel is the widest ski that Meier makes, a big-mountain powder specialty tool measuring 132 mm in the waist. It has a long, "blended" sidecut (30/40 meters) that will prefer to stay in the fall line and not overfish turns, and it's fully rocketed tip to tail. All Meier skis are wood-core laminate constructions with metal reinforcement in the binding area. They're built using Colorado wood--aspen or blue-stain beetle-kill pine--see-through topsheets that highlight the wood, and eco-friendly Super Sap wood-based epoxy. Meier is located near Glenwood Springs, Colo., burial place of Doc Holliday, from whose legend many Meier ski names are taken.
