Skier's Choice Draft Picks
Round 4 – Dream Trip, Patagonia, Pick 7Cliff drops and swooping pow turns in Laguna Bowl, racing through the notorious Palmero trees, and taking hot laps on Nubes Ridge. Traveling to Patagonia to ski last summer was one of the best experiences of my life, and I would go back in a heartbeat. If I were to bring one pair of boards, it would be the Coreupt Slasher. The terrain in Patagonia is a backcountry freestyle paradise, and this is where the Slasher excels. The 112mm waist is just right, providing you with enough float to keep you surfing on top of the snow but small enough to cut down on weight for improved swing-weight for backcountry spins and airs. Also the name says it all— this ski is a face-shot slashing machine.
|Description||Richard Permin’s new pro-model, the Slasher has stoked the appetite of everyone that has skied it. Based on the Born to Drop’s shape, but with a slightly narrower waist. Lively and efficient yet extremely forgiving, the Slasher is capable of bringing powder to the masses, while remaining a worthy ride for strong skiers. Those who push it will appreciate the predictability when stomping landings and its precision at high speed, not to mention the excellent floatability provided by the tip rocker. Thanks to its twin-tip shape, it’s ideal for skiers who value aerial ability as highly as powder capability.|
|Features||Asymetrical double BC rocker for easy liftoff and handling • Silver birch wood (10mm laminated timber) • Combination of a wood core and ABS bi-density sidewalls • Tri-axial fiber • Reinforced mounting plate|
