The ‘Beyond Faceshots’ story continues with the introduction of the most advanced deep powder ski on earth. Designed exclusively for the best heli/cat/backcountry days, the Spoon features a convex 3-D shovel combined with a single-radius underfoot rocker and radical edge bevel for the ultimate in powder surfing sensation. The Spoon draws upon years of experience gained from refining the Lotus 138 and Lotus 120. The Spoon is a ski that requires very little up-and-down movement in deep powder providing incredibly fast slarving and angulated skiing with powerful reeling vertical sprays.

Spoon Review from Powder Magazine
“My friends keep telling me to go to Retallack. When I do, I want to pull the Spoon out of my ski bag and watch them drool with envy. The convex 3-D shovel combined with a single-radius underfoot rocker and radical edge bevel help to redefine powder skiing. It’s more like surfing. It features Pure PrePreg Carbon laminates and Nanotech Resins with specially designed poplar/x-wood core that mates with the carbon build, making it the only carbon sandwich ski in the world. That means they weigh half as much as other skis and have twice the strength of fiberglass skis. This ski is designed for fresh tracks that you find at the top-tier heli/cat operations. You don’t need to bounce up or down or drive your knees; you just need to be creative with your body movements.”
Spoon Review from Men's Journal
“The DPS Spoon features such a drastic rocker – the upward bend that improves how skis float in deep snow – that it extends across so its edges bend up like a spoon. The result is a powder-only ski that's buoyant even on edge. It yields a more advanced way of skiing, one that mimics the slashing possible on a surfboard.
DPS Ski Mounting FormWhen you purchase skis and bindings on dpsskis.com you can select to have DPS mount your bindings on your skis for a service fee. We then ship your new skis mounted to you. You will then have to take your skis to a certified binding technician to adjust your DIN settings. If you add binding mounting services to your cart, you must complete the form set forth below and agree to the liability waiver and release (the “Waiver”). You must complete a separate Waiver for each ski and binding combination purchased.
Note: Before completing this Waiver, make sure that the appropriate skis and bindings are in your shopping cart and that you have selected the option to have DPS mount your bindings on your skis. We will follow-up with a phone call or email if we have any questions.
*Release Of Liability
I acknowledge that I am at least 18 years old and that I must read and accept the terms of this Waiver as indicated below as a requirement for requesting that DPS mount the bindings selected above on the skis selected above. I have carefully read, the terms of this Waiver and understand and agree to the terms of this Waiver. I understand and agree that this is a legally binding contract.
WARNING, ASSUMPTION OF RISK, LIABILITY RELEASE, INDEMNITY and HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT
WARNING: BINDING DIN SETTINGS MUST BE ADJUSTED BY A CERTIFIED SKI TECHNICIAN BEFORE USE. DPS DOES NOT SET YOUR BINDING’S DIN SETTINGS.I authorize DPS Skis to perform such work that is necessary to properly mount, test and/or repair my skis, bindings and/or boots (the “Equipment”).
I understand and agree that participation in skiing, snowboarding and related activities is HAZARDOUS and is not without significant risks. Such hazards and risks cannot be avoided without destroying the unique character of such activities. I understand that the same elements that contribute to the unique character of such activities can cause loss or damage to the Equipment as well as injuries that can in some cases be permanent or even death. I understand that such injuries and even death are common and ordinary occurrences during these activities.
I elect to participate in such activities using the Equipment despite the inherent and unknown risks and the possibility of injuries and death described above. I accept and assume full responsibility for ALL RISKS associated with such activities, including injury and death associated with the use of the Equipment. My participation in such activities using any items of the Equipment is purely voluntary and I have not been coerced or forced into participating.
With respect to the Equipment, I understand that the ski-boot-binding system is designed to release the boot from the ski when certain forces on the system reach preset values, but that the binding MAY NOT NECESSARILY RELEASE OR RETAIN THE SKI at all times where release or retention may prevent injury, and that RELEASE OR RETENTION CANNOT NECESSARILY PREVENT ALL INJURIES OR DEATH. I understand and agree that: (A) lower settings on the bindings will increase releasability but also increase the risk of injury that may be caused by inadvertent release of the ski; (B) higher settings on the bindings will increase retention but also increase the risk of injury that may be caused by retention; and (C) injuries due to unwanted release or retention of the ski are inherent risks of skiing.
I understand and agree that certain risk of skiing and snowboarding may be reduced, but not entirely eliminated, by: (A) taking lessons; (B) following the “YOUR RESPONSIBILITY CODE” which is posted at most winter sport recreational areas, and (C) using reasonable care and common sense. I further understand that a leash or other runaway prevention system is required with all skis and snowboards at all times, including while riding lifts and while carrying snowboards on or near a slope, in order to reduce the risk of injury to others.
I understand and agree that I will be responsible for all injuries to others caused by the use of any item of the Equipment by me or any other person. I will be responsible for all damage to the property of others or injuries or death to others resulting from the use of any item of the Equipment by me or any other person.
To the fullest extent allowed by law, I, on behalf of myself, my spouse and other family members, my heirs, executors, representatives and estate, hereby agree to forever WAIVE, RELEASE, DISCHARGE AND PROMISE NOT TO SUE OR ASSERT CLAMS AGAINST DPS, and all manufacturers and distributors of any item of the Equipment, as well as their respective owners, agents, employees, affiliated companies and successors and assigns, from ANY AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY, LOSSES, CLAIMS, SUITS, CAUSES OF ACTION, DAMAGES, EXPENSES OR ANY OTHER LEGAL LIABILITY incurred by them or arising out of the use of any item of the Equipment by me or any other person, including without limitation, any damage to property of, injuries to, or death of any user of any item of the Equipment, whether resulting from such parties’ negligence or any other cause.
I hereby further agree that I WILL HOLD HARMLESS, DEFEND AND INDEMNIFY SUCH PARTIES if any claims, suits, causes of action or other legal action is pursued by any third parties against them for any injuries, damages or death related to the use of any item of the Equipment by me or any other person.
I accept the Equipment “AS IS” and with NO WARRANTIES, express or implied, beyond the applicable manufacturer's written limited warranty, if any.
