It's no secret that, in the galaxy of acclaimed DPS men's big mountain skis, the Wailer family shines the brightest. And those skis have earned every bit of their legend. Here's something that isn't as well-known: for skiers that truly ski the whole mountain, spending at least as much time on the frontside as the backside, the Cassiar 95 is likely a better choice. Its 95mm waist is wide enough for all but the deepest days, while also delivering superior edge-to-edge quickness and carving precision on groomed snow. A flatter tail and subtler rocker than you'll find in the Wailer family lends additional stability and a higher speed limit. And you'll be hard-pressed to find a better companion for spring backcountry conditions. The DPS Cassiar 95: the connoisseur's all-mountain ski.
