From East Coast to West Coast, the Pioneer 96 can do it all. The construction remains unchanged for this season, but the graphics take a new turn. The Pioneer series features bamboo wood with intricate line work that creates a mesh-like top map of the Rocky Mountains. A true one-ski quiver, the Pioneer can handle everything the mountain throws at you from ice to powder and all the stuff in between. Unlike the freeride skis from Icelantic, this ski has a flat tail and 5mm of camber underfoot ensuring that it will hold an edge in variable conditions. A tapered shape with plenty of rocker in the tip allows the ski to float in deeper snow without being a noodle on hard snow. Like a Vitamix, this ski blends performance and versatility effortlessly.
