These big mountain/powder sticks feature a tapered tip/tail, Early Rise Rocker (ERR) tip/tail, and traditional camber underfoot. The utilization of camber lets the ski hold its own on the hard pack when necessary, but when it’s in native deep stuff the unique tip/tail design allow it to drift around turns effortlessly. The shape allows for a great surfy feeling, while maintaining awesome maneuverability. The Purder Two features waxed beech wood sidewalls. They offer a lively yet chatter free ride. When you wax your skis, just drip some wax on the side- walls to keep them looking their best (not required for maintenance).
