DPS Skis 14/15 Award Roundup

As snow blankets mountain ranges around the world, winter is here. With early-season conditions prevalent, now is the perfect time to update and fine-tune your ski quiver to get the most out of the season. From hard snow to the deepest days, the 14/15 DPS quiver represents our most well-rounded and advanced line to date. Media accolades continue to arrive, a testament to the research, design, and engineering that has gone into the line.  Outdoor and ski media have delivered a wealth of awards to DPS this fall. Awards were received for the entire DPS quiver, from the narrowest hard snow shapes in the Cassiar family, to all-mountain swiss-army knives in the Wailer family, to tools for the deepest days in the Lotus family. With three unique DPS constructions available, dedicated skiers can choose the build and shape ideally suited to their skiing style and preferences. Our quiver is the most precise and tailored offering today. The range of media awards from North America to Asia are a strong testament in our continual mission to build the finest boards for those who live and breathe the sport of skiing. Below is a round up of notable 14/15 awards. Shop DPS at dpsskis.com and receive a custom ski fitting, or visit one of nearly three hundred dealers worldwide. Powder The Wailer 112RP2 and Wailer 99 took home Powder’s Skier’s Choice Awards PowderAward2015 “This handy everyday driver could be the focal point of your quiver. It’s light enough to run up mountains as a touring ski. But its prepreg carbon construction around an aspen core gives it the torsional stiffness to hold and edge. The generous rockered shovel tip keeps you on top of the soft stuff. But above all things, this ski likes to turn. Whether they’re tight, long, or loaded slarves, the Wailer 99 is a nimble ski.” Backcountry Magazine BC_awards The Yvette 112RP2 received a 2015 Editor’s Choice from Backcountry Magazine, while the Lotus 120 Spoon received Backcountry Magazine’s Gear Guide Select in addition to the new Cassiar 95.
