Powder Bowling into the 2010/2011 Season
Posted 2 years, 7 months ago by Pete Wagner
Check out these big mountain boards that Rob designed for his trip to the Andes. At 188cm length, 140mm-111mm-121mm dimensions, an early rise tip/tail, and a stable Aspen core, these skis were built for charging big lines. As for how the skis performed, Rob was stoked to report that he was rolling nothing but strikes. The skis performed “brilliantly” in all the conditions that Rob encountered in the Andes backcountry: powder, wind pack, sun crust, and corn snow. The Wagner Custom fitting process that Rob participated in rewarded him with a “flex that allows for hard-charging without ever being punishing, and an amazing edge grip.” Rob opted for the super durable base and the impact resistance package, which protected the core of his skis from the various “rock gardens” he had to negotiate in Chile. We look forward to seeing where else these Big LePowskis take Rob in the future.
Just as winter is turning to spring in the Andes, the golden Aspen leaves here in Telluride signal the nearing of another ski season across North America. This electric landscape mimics the excitement winter enthusiasts are feeling everywhere at this time of year. We can’t help but dream about what this season will bring, where we will ski, and the friends we will share it with.
