Dreamtime 2018—All You Need to Know

Dreamtime is the Shrewdest Time of the Year to Shop DPS

Dreamtime is an annual two-week event that snaps the dog days of summer with dreams of cold smoke. Dedicated skiers worldwide get the opportunity to assemble the ultimate quiver at the season’s deepest discount across three world-class targeted constructions: Alchemist, Foundation, and Tour1. And two of the biggest draws: event-specific releases from the elite Powderworks division, and limited-run, event-only, Special Edition ‘artwork’ skis.

Dreamtime offers dedicated skiers worldwide:

  • The deepest discount of the year on the 2018/19 quiver: $200 off AlchemistTour1, and Foundation skis.
  • Special Edition limited-run, event-exclusive ski art on select Alchemist models.
  • Elite small batch creations from our skunkworks Powderworks division.
  • Free binding mounting and pro tune when skis and bindings are ordered together.
  • Free shipping worldwide with any ski purchase*.
  • Other event specials and gifts.

*Skis ordered during Dreamtime will ship in early September. If you have a Southern Hemisphere need, contact us to see if expedited shipping is possible.

Meet the Dreamtime Special Editions

Special Edition skis are released once per year exclusively at Dreamtime. They are small-batch, limited edition ‘artwork’ creations made in the DPS Factory in Utah—and are never reproduced again. Special Edition sellout is common during Dreamtime. They are prized by skiers craving something truly rare and exotic. Interested skiers are strongly encouraged to get fitted from DPS fitters before Dreamtime commences so that they can act decisively, as SEs move quickly.

The 2018 Special Edition class is available in the following pure carbon-constructed, award-winning Alchemist models.

Meet the Dreamtime Powderworks Releases

Powderworks skis are a small batch of uniquely designed and constructed skis in limited, serialized volumes made in the DPS factory in Utah and released exclusively during Dreamtime. Powderworks editions represent a window into our most progressive R+D efforts and exploratory thoughts. It’s where advanced cores, laminates, rockers or sidecuts are previewed and brought to life. These creations may one day make it into the yearly standard lineup, but as they stand: they are rare cutting-edge creations.

Powderworks Alchemist Lotus 138 192cm (147/138/143, 32m turn radius) | 182cm (146/138/142, 32m turn radius) The revival of a big-mountain behemoth comes to life in Dreamtime 2018 with a limited pressing of the Powderworks Alchemist Lotus 138. We’ve had pent-up demand, and a waitlist from skiers around the world wanting more Lotus 138s. The call has been answered with this limited-run release, which features new ski art, and the inherent benefits of Alchemist construction. This was the first rockered ski with sidecut ever made, and the legend that changed the whole pursuit of powder skiing for so many.

Powderworks Alchemist Wailer 110 C2 189cm (133/110/119, 22m turn radius) | 184cm (132/110/119, 22m turn radius) | 178cm (131/110/118, 22m turn radius) The Powderworks Alchemist Wailer 110 C2 is a Dreamtime-exclusive design that hits the zeitgeist of our recent shaping work. This new shape builds on the C2 chassis that recently debuted in the new Cassiar line. The W110 C2 has a longer 22m radius and a longer effective edge than the Wailer 112 RP brethren, while still remaining very accessible with a comfortable balanced feel. At home in powder, trees, crud, and now with more groomer duty and higher speed comfort, the Powderworks Wailer 110 C2 can crush all day long even when conditions deteriorate.
