It sounds crazy. Hiking uphill for a few hours to take one run that lasts all of 10 minutes. "Forget that," bystanders say. "I'll stick to the chairlift."

2020 Moment Deathwish Tour Description:
Moment used to make Deathwish lovers think. Would they get the narrower version of the Deathwish, the old Deathwish Tour, as their touring ski, or would they look for something else? No more.

This puts the new skis right on the line between touring ski and powder touring ski. And in today's skiing world, that's a great place to be. Just like the mothership Deathwish, you get Triple Camber technology to optimize edge hold. But with a big weight savings, the Deathwish Tour is different enough to help you justify getting two Moment skis this year. We won't judge.
