You can probably ski on water with these. If you want to avoid penetrating said water, skin track, or deep powder, check out the DPS Lotus 124 Tour1. We won’t carry them uphill for you, but apparently they aren’t too bad to lug up there, and reportedly the smile-size makes up for them on the way down. If moderation is not your thing, the generous rocker, waist-width, and easy-skiing shape will have you on top of the world. Just not very quickly and not for long since you’ll won’t be able to wait for the down. If you’re heading out for one-lap backcountry powder photos, the Lotus 124 Tour is the ski for you.

- Tough topsheets are resistant to scratches and shed a little snow.
- Effortless tip and tail rocker means you just point and go in deep snow.
- World Cup PTex bases are tough, not that you’ll hit any rocks while surfing.
