Drake Powder Tools Ski Review

Drake Powder Tools Ski Review

Stephan Drake continues to preach the benefits of semicustom carbon fiber skis. It’s worth listening to his sermon, as we’ve found Drake’s skis to be incredibly light and fun. We’re also big fans of the fact you can choose your sidecut and flex (within a variety of options offered by the company), which allows you to own a pair of skis that are exactly what you want.

Wailer 105

Length: 178, 188, 198
Dimensions: 131-105-118 @ 188
MSRP: $960 Stoke: 8

At the heart of DPT’s offerings is the venerable Wailer. This ski is so light that it takes some getting used to. Testers just didn’t think that something that felt like air underfoot could perform as well as the Wailer did. “Surprise!,” said one, “this is a well made ski that out-performs many of the big companies and is a powder, groomer and crud machine.”

Lotus 138

Length: 192, 202
Dimensions: 140-138-139 @ 192
MSRP: $960 Stoke: 8

Take an ultra-light construction, couple it with a unique footprint and head up to Solitude on a powder morning with these strapped to your feet and you will have fun. No doubt. The lightness of these skis, coupled with the unique powder performance of the design makes for epic pow runs. This isn’t a daily driver, but when it snows, WOW!
