For expert and elite-level skiers looking for unsinkable flotation in the deepest powder. These are niche skis with massive waist-widths (105-plus mm), so they're meant for backside powder days, out of bounds and heli/catskiing.
Deep-six the midfats. Once you've floated on the luxury cruise liners that are today's powder skis, there's no turning back.

A bit optimistic of you, isn't it, buying a powder ski? There are skiers who won't buy snowblowers, afraid that the moment they do, they won't see a flake for months. Youcould jinx us all. But you're not the superstitious type, and now that you've had a taste of skimming over powder on your midfats, rather than struggling through it, you're ready for the full-on toboggan.
