Like a spa day in motion, enjoy long outings in the mountains with the DPS Pagoda Tour 94: powerful yet light enough to keep your legs fresh after a demanding approach. The Pagoda 94 is a versatile ski that is wide enough for soft snow, but excels in terrain and snow conditions that are less than ideal. While the DPS Pagoda 100 is in a similar category, but catering more towards soft snow with more rocker and a shorter side cut, the 94 has less rocker, and larger side cut making it more applicable for variable terrain and conditions. True to the deep roots (pun intended) of DPS ski design, the entire Pagoda Tour line is a joy to ski and the 94 is no exception. With a strong and stable feeling, even at high speeds, the Pagoda 94 can handle just about anything you can throw at it. The versatile rocker-camber profile will feel right at home while making big GS turns down Red Mountain, or snaking tight wiggles on Cardiac Ridge lap after lap. If you're looking for your next quiver-of-one, the DPS Pagoda Tour 94 ski should be a serious contender.
- Pagoda ski line has taken the best characteristics of the Tour1 and Alchemist/Pure3 lines for an easy-skiing, yet happy at high speed set of boards.
- Ash and paulownia stringers make for a light ski on the ascent, damp feel in the chunder, and a lively experience in the deep stuff.
- Aerospace-grade foam core provides impressive damping while keeping the ski light and energetic.
- Textured polyamide topsheet keeps snow and ice off the top of your ski.
- World Cup race-grade base material provides fast glide and goes well with DPS's Phantom 2.0 treatment.
- The Chassis Two (C2) rocker-camber profile is built to maximize the combination of the flex pattern and sidecut, creating an ultra-smooth skiing experience.
- 3rd Rail Technology is sidewall material placed along the longitudinal axis to improve the connectedness between the core and sidewall, resulting in a more durable, damp, and stable ride.
Update 2022/23: DPS has added their "3rd Rail Technology," which improves the connectivity between the core and sidewall. DPS also updated the topsheet graphic.

Questions & Reviews
First, DPS uses the best components available and handmade here in Salt Lake City. They will last a very long time. The Pagoda design is a complex core that makes for about the dampest touring ski you can find. So will handle difficult or rough conditions really well. And still a bit lighter then the Camox. The DPS are a bit more rockered and tapered and I would say more playful.
The DPS Pagoda Tour 94 is a great option for someone that likes more camber than rocker, and skis a wide range of conditions. The Pagoda Tour 94 is very damp for its weight. It does a great job in variable snow, while still being quite capable when things are deep. For a backcountry ski, I would put you on the 157cm length based on your dimensions. That length would be the best balance of ease of use on the skin track, handling in tight terrain, as well as bowl skiing. The 165cm length would be more stable at speed, but probably a lot in the trees.
