Start the New Year off with a brand-new pair of skis from DPS. Although the brand is widely known for its state-of-the-art powder skis, many PSIA-AASI members might not know that the Utah-based ski company also makes high-level skis for lift-served conditions and hardpack slopes. Also take note of DPS's base-treatment products.

Foundation Cassiar 82 (men's)/Uschi 82 (women's)
The Cassiar and Uschi 82 offer the perfect waist width for everyday use. At 82mm underfoot, the ski’s edge lines up with a skier’s first metatarsal to create a direct transmission of power from boot to ski. The Foundation construction, which is comprised of poplar and bamboo wrapped with triaxial fiberglass and a wide carbon stringer, blends power and dampness.
Lengths: Cassiar: 168, 178, 185cm Uschi: 148, 158, 168cm
Alchemist Cassiar 95
While the Cassiar A95 is the floatiest member of the Cassiar family, its flat-tailed design is for everyday instructing. The Alchemist construction, which sandwiches pre-pregnated layers of carbon around an aspen wood core, makes these skis both lightweight and torsionally stiff. The durable Carbon means these skis flex the same way on the 500th day as they do on the first.
Lengths: 168, 178, 185cm
Phantom Permanent Base Glide Treatment
Phantom is a permanent, one-time application base-coating that forever eliminates the need for waxing skis and snowboards. It's a disruptive, truly innovative solution that DPS says will usher in a new era in snowsports. Phantom’s patent-pending polymer technology offers convenience combined with great glide performance that never wanes across all snow temperatures, and for the life of a ski or board’s use. Phantom eliminates the damage traditional wax does to watersheds, along with the health risks for people applying it. Phantom can be applied to any new or used ski or snowboard at any point in a board's life cycle.
