PM Gear's Lhasa Pow ski

Lhasa Pow 2
Dek: 
Like the Rossi S7 and the Armada JJ, this ski's bullet-shaped tip and early rise are perfect for powder.

I got a chance to get out on PM Gear’s new 186 Lhasa Pow fiberglass ski for a day of spring turns at A-Basin. The conditions that day ran the gamut from
cold morning powder, to afternoon mush with a few chalky, wind-buffed chutes on the East Wall thrown into the mix. I found the Lhasa skied extremely versatile. Its bullet-shaped tip with a little early rise floated to the top of crud and powder. With two mm of positive camber, the Lhasa holds an edge on hard snow and is capable of making turns of any radius. Yet it can still disengage and slarve through turns. The Lhasa skied shorter than its 186 centimeters, yet its width and platform are stiff and substantial. Similar skiing boards would be the Rossi S7 and the Armada JJ. Dimensions are 140-112-122. It also comes in a lighter carbon fiber-fiberglass version for $100 more. [$789.00, pmgear.com]  —Mark Lesh

The Lhasa Pow is

The Lhasa Pow is unbelieveable! Many say it's the best ski ever made.  I got the carbon model and it is by far the livliest ski I have ever been on.  It does anything and everything and I found my form was better on my other skis after skiing it.  If ever there was a ski that was pure fun and actually made you a better skier, this is it!
