Powder/Big Mountain Freeride Ski The FX 85 Wide, formally known as the Powchickawowwow early-rise, will blow your mind. It was named Freeskier Editor’s Pick during the 2013-14 season and has, since then, been renamed the FX185 Wide. The FX is the most reliable and predictable ski that can handle the entire mountain and all conditions with ease. The early rise tip, camber underfoot, and our award-winning twin tip design delivers flotation on a powder day, edge hold on high speed groomers, and predictability in the crud. The FX 185 Wide has early rise in just the tips vs. the dual rocker on the DR POW. This is the best handcrafted, USA made ski for all conditions that money can buy.
