Liberty is based in Avon, Colorado, just a stone-roll downhill from Beaver Creek Resort. And when they build their freeriding Origin skis, it's pretty obvious they've got Birds of Prey, Cherry Chutes, and Stone Creek Chutes in mind (FYI, those are all zones you need to go ski at Beaver Creek). The 2019-2020 edition of the Origin 106 features lower tips (easier turning) and a longer effective edge (better grip) than last year's version. The 106mm waist width of the Origin 106 is just nimble enough to negotiate steep bumps, helped out by rocker in the tip and tail and a forgiving-yet-sturdy wood core with carbon. Those traits help it excel in tight trees, too. When you want to open things up, whether in mixed snow or plush powder, the Origin 106 performs like a big-mountain ski. Sturdy, smeary, poppy, surfy. Garnish this insanely versatile build with a silhouetted mountainscape on the topsheets, and you get a ski with the Rocky Mountains in its DNA. Similar skis: Salomon QST 106, Icelantic Nomad 105, Moment Wildcat 108.
