Surfy Powder Ski

See all pictures

Line’s twin, swallowtail sweethearts are back again this season, and boy can they turn! And then some. Most at home plunging in and out of soft snow like an upstream salmon, the Pescado’s iconic tail keeps your shovels out of the snow and favoring a high-sailing, surfy feel.

They also allow you to mount the ski back from center without sacrificing aft stability, as the rigid titanal swallowtail tips add a little extra edge you’d otherwise miss.

 

These are definitely soft snow skis. To be sure, on hard pack or crust you’d feel a bit of a “fish out of water” and that’s alright. Unless you’re living somewhere that sees multiple daily inches or only hits the slopes after a big storm, they’re a bit of a specialty piece that will spend a lot of time in the garage or the roof box. But, when conditions are right, it’s hard to find skis that are as much fun to ride.
