Wailer 112RP2 + Wailer 99 Claim Powder Magazine's Top Awards

Last winter Jackson Hole Mountain Resort had one of its deepest winters; the fourth greatest snowfall in resort history. By the end of February 2014 the word was out—Jackson was the place to be in the lower 48 for powder riding. Long-time Powder Magazine staffers called their magazine's annual ski test dubbed 'Powder Week' as one the snowiest in recent memory, and arriving to an untouched Four Pines brought infinite smiles to all. PowderWeek-2 Powder Week served up deep, untracked snow, tram laps, backcountry excursions, and a few late nights at the Mangy Moose. The timing couldn’t have been better to showcase DPS’ new Wailer 112RP2, a reinvigorated version of the award-winning Wailer 112RP. When the dust settled at Powder Week, both the Wailer 112RP2 and Wailer 99 took home Powder’s Skier’s Choice Awards. PowderAward2015_bodyImage_w99 On the Wailer 99 Julie Brown of Powder Magazine said, “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." PowderAward2015_bodyImage_RP2 On the Wailer 112RP2, the editor's highlighted the recent upgrades in the iconic shape. Explaining, "the Wailer 112RP had been one of DPS’s most popular models, it received a redesign this year to reduce the tip and tail rocker. The new shape [112RP2] simultaneously eliminated the splayed shovel in the longer lengths of the previous version while giving it a bigger sweet spot for more versatility and control." Detailed reviews are available in September 2014's Powder Magazine and in Powder’s Online Buyer’s Guide.
