The Scale Gamma is the second-widest ski in Stockli's All Mountain series, with its waist ranging from 78 - 81 mm depending on length. This ski is slightly more targeted for off-piste terrain than others in the series that gets help from its Powder Rocker technology, which lifts the tip dramatically off the ground, designed to mow over fresh snow and various terrain outside of the groomers. This rocker profile also lifts the underfoot section up and off the ground, intended for extra floatation when the ski needs it. For something similar but a bit wider, check out the Scale Delta. And for something skinnier and a little more carving-focused, check out the Scale Beta and Scale Alpha. The All Mountain series is comprised of four different models, all falling under the the "Scale" subcategory. There's the Scale Alpha, Scale Beta, Scale Gamma, and Scale Delta. All skis in the series share Light Core technology, which integrates woods like fuma and balsa, designed to reduce weight while maintaining durability and stability. These are carving skis for the most part, but Stockli says they're intended to go all over the mountain as well. Stockli, based in Wolhusen, Switzerland, was founded in 1935. Its U.S. headquarters are in Shelburne, Vermont.
