DPS sweeps Skiing Magazine’s ski test

Each year ski magazines ask brands to submit a collection of skis to be reviewed and tested, typically over a weeklong timeframe and on a variety of conditions. Receiving single rewards is typical for most ski companies. Last season DPS submitted five models to Skiing Magazine's annual test, and every ski submitted took home an Official Selection. It was a true testament to our growing quiver, and commitment to building skis for those who live and breathe the sport. Both new Hybrid T2 models, the Wailer 99 Hybrid T2 and Cassiar 95 Hybrid T2 claimed top honors in the all mountain category, with editors stating “DPS is not just for soft-snow surfing. The Cassiar 95 is quick edge to edge on hardpack and capable of inscribing multiple turn shapes. It has everything you want in an everyday ski.” In the big-mountain powder realm, the Wailer RPC was verified as a high speed charger. While both popular women’s models, the Yvette 112RP2 and Nina 99 took home top honors. Able to “soak up terrain quickly and quietly,” the Yvette was celebrated for its power and versatility while the Nina was called “an all-day, go-anywhere, dominate-everything ski.” To read the full review pick up the latest issue of Skiing Magazine.
