For an all-mountain charger of this width, the Whitedot Director is the best we’ve tested in deep powder.

2015-2016 Blizzard Spur

2015-2016 Whitedot Redeemer

2015-2016 Whitedot Redeemer

2015-2016 Whitedot Redeemer CarbonLite 3

2015-2016 Whitedot Redeemer CarbonLite 3

The Whitedot Skis Redeemer sits favorably in the growing class of ~8 lb-per-pair powder skis, and should be on the radar of anyone who tours for untracked snow, or who just prefers lighter pow skis.
