DPS Pagoda Tour 112 Ski

Behold, the DPS empire has moved to the Far East with the Pagoda line, but the banana shapes of their previous Jamaican-reggae skis have stuck around for the trip. Longtime Skimo Co shoppers will remember our remarks on the last iteration of the Wailer 112: "the rockered profile perfectly integrated with the buttery sidecut makes skiing too easy," we concluded. "As such, we don't recommend even tempting yourself with this ski." Confounding our best efforts, the Tour1 Wailer 112 put DPS on the map for backcountry powder hogs and became a best-selling, award-winning ski year after year. The Pagoda Tour construction adds scant grams on the scale, but ups the performance to previously-unimaginable levels of deep-snow excellence. Damp, predictable, and impressively stable at high speeds, the Pagoda 112RP will keep you on top effortlessly while laying down perfect Wasatch wiggles on a bottomless day. But it's in less-than-perfect conditions that the Pagoda really stands out from its predecessor, with the added damping of the foam core and wood stringers keeping the ski stable when the 3% blower up high turns to cut-up, sun-baked mank down low. Whether you're on a hut trip to the Canadian Interior or skiing the South Face of Superior after a storm, the DPS Pagoda Tour 112 RP has an almost telepathic feel and will keep your legs fresh lap after lap. DPS's Pagodas were engineered with the future in mind, while the shape and feel are staying true to their powder-loving roots.

  • The long-awaited successor to the best-selling Wailer 112.
  • Pagoda ski line has matched the best characteristics of the Tour1 and Alchemist/Pure3 lines for an easy-skiing experience.
  • Ash and paulownia stringers keep the ski light on the ascent, and very happy in the deepest of powder.
  • Aerospace-grade foam core gives an unbelievably damp feel that shines in the crud.
  • Textured polyamide topsheet keeps snow and ice off your ski when the skies open up and drop the white stuff.
  • World Cup race-grade base material leads to fast gliding skis and is well paired with DPS's Phantom 2.0 treatment.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Justin M
Sounds like a lovely ski. Is it too much width to be used as a quiver of one for the Wasatch? Some reviews speak to the Pagoda 112 handling crud and crust well are appealing. The short radius, rocker and damp ride sound super fun. I don’t tour every day, and I try to favor the favorable days. Coming from Bent Chetler 100’s and 120’s, boots are Hoji Tours but moving to a Free this season. Also have Alien RS boots but might move to something somewhat more stout before too long. Thanks
Answer from Cole P
Hey Justin, the Pagoda 112 is a versatile ski that performs exceptionally well in powder. For most of us here we tend to think of 100mm underfoot a more reasonable width for a quiver of one. The DPS Pagoda 100 would be a great compromise, offering great soft snow performance with a good bit of weight saving, and will perform stronger in variable snow conditions.

Question from JMC
I've read that these ski a bit shorter than their size due to the rocker. I'm 5' 10" 160lbs (geared up). Would you recommend 178cm or 184cm for an aggressive but middle aged skier?
Answer from Jeff
Hi JMC, Yes, that's true. Just so happens that I have an older pair and am your size. I have the 178cm and personally, it is a bit more float than I prefer unless it's really deep and light or I am using it in a resort. So definitely the 178cm, Also they are about the most fun powder ski there has ever been built. And unlike most skis, the Turn radius is the same for all sizes, telepathically fast.

Picked up a pair of these to be my mid winter and deep day ski. Initially I paired with the SCARPA Maestrale which is a blast but have been skiing them with the Alien RS most recently and its an amazing match. These ski crud great, the shovel handles breakable crust without issue, obviously they are awesome in any fresh snow. The short turn radius makes them super responsive and the dampness of the new construction makes them light but not pingy. I always shied away from DPS because of cost but a couple months more of saving and I think its totally worth it. Needless to say I'm a big fan.

Another great ski from DPS. Floats on powder, handles the crud and is ridiculously light for a 112. Paired with Dynafit Superlite 150s, DPS Skins and Dynafit TLT8s. These skis turn and skin great.

Had a blast up on Molas Pass the other day. Windblown up top down to deep powder in the trees. No problem....
