This is a really interesting and unique concept ski from DPS. The combination of lightweight Pagoda Tour construction with a 110 mm waist underfoot and the minimal sidecut of the C2 shape produces one of the best touring skis I’ve seen for Utah's deep, dry powder.
When you're skiing deep powder in the backcountry you need a ski that's wide and floaty without adding extra weight. The DPS Powderworks Tour 110 C2 is crafted to dominate in these conditions and let you make fast hero turns down big faces. This particular Powderworks offering combines DPS's downhill-capable C2 shaping with the backcountry-ready Pagoda Tour construction—light enough for powder laps all day and with versatility to charge through any conditions. The wider parts of the tip and tail are further from the centerline than with the RP shape, gving the C2 a longer edge contact length and a fairly long 22 meter turning radius. This makes the Powderworks Tour 110 C2 slightly less nimble than RP-shaped skis that have a tight 15 meter radius; but the longer turn arc of the C2 shape gives more stability at high speed, which is exactly what you want when you're pointing it down a steep, long runout. The shallow sidecut is more pronounced in the front with wide shovels that help with turn initiation and are tapered so the leading edges smoothly engage the snow and lift your skis. Significant tip rocker works with the taper and a 110 mm waist to give these skis cloud-like float. If you're aiming to charge steep and deep terrain this winter, look no further than the DPS Powderworks Tour 110 C2 skis.
