The introduction of Tour1 construction chopped another 30 percent of weight off an already lightweight Pure Carbon layup all while retaining tremendous torsional stiffness that is unmatched in the touring category. Tour1 layup skis make long days in the mountains into great ones, simply by the energy saved on the uphill on account of less weight. Traditional touring skis are narrower in their shaping to maximize this effect. But, what if you want to both tour AND surf deep pow in one high-performance package? Enter a very special Powderworks edition of the Lotus 124 the best of both worlds. Mount it with a tech binding and experience the bliss of blazing up the skin track on the best days followed by sweet runs where you surf and plane powder in the modern out-of-fall line style. If you are traveling or living in a deep snow mecca that demands daily human-powered access? You simply wont find a more powerful powder-oriented touring ski with this kind of shaping pedigree.

We've mounted these bad boys with the Fritschi Tecton 12 tech binding, a binding that is dubbed by some as the "Kingpin Killer." How come? Well, they're arguably the safest tech binding on the market thanks to their solid, alpine-like heel and and the lateral travel that they afford in the toe piece. Combine that with an easier step-in and a weight savings of nearly 100g compared to the Marker Kingpin and suddenly the Tecton is a contender for the best hard-charging tech binding ever made. Come check 'em out!

All of our DPS demo setups come with Pomoca Climb 2.0 skins. These mohair-mix skins are lighter and much more efficient than the typical nylon skins on the market, but don’t compromise on grip. What really sets these puppies apart, however, is the waterproof membrane between the fur and glue. When the fur eventually wets out, it won’t soak all the way through. Give these skins a try and let us know what you think.

*We will not pair skis with NTN boots or any other boots with bellows (eg. Scarpa F3).  

***ALL AT BOOT AND SKI RENTALS REQUIRE A COMPLEMENTARY BOOT-BINDING ADJUSTMENT BY ONE OF OUR TECH'S. We also require that the end user pick up the equipment at the store to sign liability paperwork and receive instruction***
