The Cassiar 95 is an all-mountain shape that often tricks us into thinking it’s a big-mountain ski. Of course, we’re used to race skis and not the 138mm wide Lotus Spoon which put DPS on the map. Maybe one day Stephen Drake (DPS founder) will return our helicopter he borrowed.

In the meantime, we will ski with confidence on these planks. They are stable and fun. Another hit shape from DPS, who has mastered the art of blending underfoot camber and sidecut into the tips and tails in a way that just seems to work. With less rocker and flatter tails than the Wailers, the Cassiar is honed for variable days when you expect to find more junk than pow. And if you get lucky, it still shreds the pow pretty frickin’ well too.

Last but not least, now you can do it all fast ‘n light, thanks to the new Tour1 construction.

  • Recently raised tip and nice flex profile offer a good amount of float.
  • Flatter and stiffer tail helps you finish turns on hard snow.
  • Tough polyamide topsheet caps the lightweight carbon layup.
  • Core made of balsa wood that helps keep things fairly damp.
  • Rockwell 48 edges and World Cup P-Tex can take daily abuse.

Question from Anthony C Orkiolla
I heard about Dynafit Denali's snapping, kind of scary, I have 171 nanga parbats for ice and skimo. To replace my denali's, if you think I should, should I go with the cassiar 95, wailer 99, new BD helio 95 or 105, OR, much larger, Wailer 112....which i hear is, as you describe, "cheating." Looking for the most forgiving and "confidence building" option.
Answer from jbo
Hey Anthony, we haven't seen an epidemic of broken Denalis, I wouldn't be overly concerned. That said, you listed some fun skis. The Wailers are easy to ski in general (even moreso than the cassiar); obviously the 112 floats better but the 99 would suffice in most conditions. The Helios have a bit more hard snow chops, they are stiffer and side-walled. It will depend on your usage in the end.

Question from andy
Hey Skimo, which climbing skins would you recommend for the DPS Cassiar 95 Tour 1 ski in 168. Thanks, Andy
Answer from jbo
Hi Andy, a good fit for those would be the Contour Hybrid Mix skins, 120mm x 161-168.
