As lightest and skinniest ski in the DPS touring lineup, the Cassiar 87 Tour1 is likely to get picked on by his peers. We like to stick up for such poor souls because they will probably have the last laugh. The 87 is a classic touring ski with a medium waist that seems to handle whatever is under it without complaint. Tougher than it looks, the 87 carves up corn and eats through chowder. Enough to make you hungry for more. With a light balsa wood core and classic size, the Cassiar won’t tire you out if you have seconds. And when you go back for third and fourth helpings, it won’t implode since it has World Cup quality base material and hardened steel edges. The Cassiar 87 is a future classic.

  • Balsa core is capped with a tough nylon topsheet that you can eat off.
  • Rockwell 48 edges can scarf down those chocolate chips in spring.
  • Pre-preg carbon and glass fiber laminates are yummy cake layers.
  • Hard, textured race bases offer smooth sliding down a snow gullet.

Question from Ed Herford
 
i am looking for a lightweight spring ski to improve my quiver. All winter long I enjoy BC powder skiing on my DPS Lotus tour 1 178cm skis with Meidjo NTN bindings. They are much lighter than my current spring skis, Kastle T97 with Rottefella Freedom Bindings. That's just not right, since I have to wear my spring skis on my back sometimes! I am looking at the DPS Tour 1 Cassiar 95 and 87, not sure which one better suits my needs? I am not looking for a powder ski, something that does well in various spring conditions and maybe some groomers tough i rarely ski inbounds. Do you have any suggestions? I am open to other possibilities as well. Also, do you have these skis in the 178cm length in stock?

Hi Ed, the 87 would be my choice for spring conditions and groomers. The extra width doesn't help much in those situations and makes skinning worse. Plus the 87 is a really fun ski!
