Looking for an everyday frontside charger? A ski with shovel and rocker to cut through the off-piste crud, while still digging trenches as you carve the early-morning groomers? The DPS Cassiar 87 Alchemist should be right in your crosshairs. Mount it up with a tech binding and take it out into the backcountry for those big spring ski mountaineering missions, too! The Cassiar series provides for a more traditional flat-tail profile to give you the end-of-turn snap you expect out of a cambered ski, while still floating when the snow gets soft, deep, or funky.
The Alchemist construction combines a industry-leading prepreg carbon layup with newly added dampening materials in just the right places to make these skis snappy in the turns yet able to swallow up mixed snow and funky terrain features. Then, as you lay the ski into the turn, the rounded flex pattern will hold a beautiful edge. The progressive stiffness of the tail will help you exit and initiate your next turn like never before!
At only 1505g (171cm) this is an ideal crossover ski when mounted with a touring binding, allowing for a dampened, solid-feeling ski as you do laps in-bounds, then take them out on your spring hut trip and see how they become your new favorite ski mountaineering tool!
