This French company set out to create products yielding unadulterated pleasure with unmatched performance. The Camox Birdie is a confident ski that can charge yet remains easy to flick from side to side. It’s a wide all-terrain ski, and it delivers. A full ABS perimeter lends hard-snow grip, and a new rockered tip floats in the depths. Skiing’s very own Kim “The Mouth” Beekman found le mot juste: “Amazeballs!”

Like a portly kid on Christmas, this is one quick fatty. Aimed for the gal who wants to leave the crowds behind, slay big, open faces of fluff, and stomp the deepness, it’s a freestyle-oriented ski for out-of-bounds adventure. But its light weight and ample flex allow for on-piste destruction. Release the brakes and let ’em fly. The Atris Birdie will have you cawing with joy. “I’d marry this ski!”

Designed by Lynsey Dyer, the UP Pro will have you runnin’ and smearin’ quicker than mascara on prom night. It’s burly, stable, quick, and carvey. It’s a stout ski that’s easy to drive. You’ll want to take it on all the “pretty faces” of your dreams for stiff, nimble, big-mountain annihilation. Sego has delivered a Swiss Army knife of a powder ski: great in any situation, a blade for finesse, a hammer for crushing.
