This new deep snow ski from Armada relies heavily on the influence of professional skier Sammy Carlson, a PNW-based rider who knows how to ski pow. The WhiteWalker has one of the most unique shapes in the category with a full caruba wood core, a significant amount of carbon integrated into the shovel, and pintail twin tips. Designed to surf, float, and fly through everything, these sticks are best suited to deep snow, but testers agreed they are always fun.

STRENGTHS: Playfulness, Flotation

WEAKNESSES: Stability at Speed, Crud Performance
