    DPS Cassiar A82's, anyone skied them?

    As the title says. The vast internet is void of information on this ski other than the crew over at SkiEssentials. Hoping to find someone that's spent more than a day or two on them. Haven't really heard great things about the Cassiar series in carbon, really curious if they're as soft and...

    If you were allowed quivers from only one ski manufacturer, what would you choose?

    I think either Blister or Ski Essentials does this with their reviews so I t hought it might be fun to see how folks here would pick for a one, two or three ski quiver if limited to a single manufacturer. I picked a few of the sponsors here and added Rossignol because, well, I love Rossignol. :)...

    Comparison Review Battle of the Premium 80mm Skis: A Segment of Glorious Skis

    Of all the categories of premium skis, the 80-something segment could be the most hotly contested. Wider skis will probably sell more in volume, but the 80s are the ones that give their manufacturers bragging rights at their respective country clubs. These skis are halo automobiles, proper...

    Comparison Review Thumbnail Reviews from the Not-on-Mother's-Day Gathering at A-Basin

    It appears that all the insider Pugs have been given the green light by the Powers That Be to let loose with their reviews of 2020 model year skis, so I figured I'd pile on with some quick notes on skis Phil and Tricia were nice enough to lay out in Colorado a few weeks ago. Conditions: I would...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Liberty V76 vs 2019 Blizzard Black Pearl 78 vs 2019 DPS Alchemist Cassiar 79

    Ah, 76, 78, 79. This seems to be the sweet spot for a ski that can carve up the groomers, rip a zipper line, or help someone work on technique. For me, it is the sweet spot for a ski that puts a smile on my face. I was fortunate enough to be able to ski all three of them early in their lives...
