We don't know how to categorize the Amalgamate because it's a mix of everything. It excels in soft snow, yet feels right at home on hard snow and in the park. You can surf, smear, and charge deep powder on the rockered tips and tails. Yet on days where face shots are not on the agenda, lay trenches on hardpack as you make your way to the park. Balanced tips and tails and a near symmetrical rocker will have you riding backwards as comfortably as forwards and spinning effortlessly. This ski was designed to be fun and playful, so grab this ski if you like to smile.
