One of the most versatile, smooth handling and energetic touring skis of the last few seasons has got to be the DPS Wailer 106 Alchemist. Designed to be the all-mountain specialist that you can feel confident taking out no matter the conditions or terrain. With a shape profile and flex that provides great float and quick turn initiation in powder conditions, and will lock on edge and grip like a champ when you're ripping groomers at highspeeds. The moderate tip rocker, camber underfoot and somewhat flatter tail means plenty of effective edge length and energy/pop when making turns. This setup is ideal for the user looking for a hybrid ski that can handle deep backcountry days as well as resort hardpack and everything in between.
The package includes the Salomon S/Lab Shift binding. Built to provide the uphill efficiency of a pin-tech system, and the downhill performance and safety of a DIN certified alpine binding. The Shift is a full crossover binding between ski touring and alpine skiing - perfect for blending resort skinning / backcountry touring with lift-accessed downhill. Rest assured you'll get the most power transmission and control to your skis, with the ability to be used with both alpine touring boots (uphill + downhill) and alpine boots (downhill only).
It's worth considering adding DPS Phantom Treatment to the package - Phantom is permanent waxless base glide cooked up between the University of Utah and DPS Skis that ensures a never-wax-again glide for the lifetime of the skis. Basically, during the application process the treatment percolates into the honeycomb structure of the base and binds at a molecular level when cured under UV light. The result is permanent glide performance that works really well across all snow temperatures. Also, a big perk for touring specific skis is that you don't have to worry about peeling away hot-wax from the ski base every time you apply and remove your skins, subsequently drying out the bases much faster. With Phantom, you feasibly never have to apply wax again.
This closeout package purchase includes a free binding installation (the bindings are not yet mounted to the skis). If you need climbing skins as well, we can make a recommendation and trim them to fit so everything is ready to go upon arrival to you.
