Watch the first Spoon footage here. Overall, the DPS Spoon defies convention. It is singularly meant for deep powder skiing—and nothing else. Think deep, untracked touring, heli, or snowcat days for skiers who understand angulation and planing. The Spoon is huge, fully rockered, has a convex base, and six downward-facing cleats. The Spoon moves ski design into a complex world of four dimensions where shape, rocker, base convexity, and cleats all must work together in synergistic design. Its proprietary and radical design delivers massive flotation, nimble handing, and huge sprays. It will forever change the way you ride deep powder. A formal launch date for the Spoon has yet to be determined, but it’s getting closer. You may join the waiting list for the Spoon here to give you preferred priority when it is available for purchase.

With speculation about the DPS Spoon, enter the first recorded footage of the Spoon in action. Shot behind Alta, UT in March 2011, Stephan Drake puts the Spoon through its paces in deep, north-facing snow. The result is a quick film teaser showing the paradigm shift that is Spoon skiing. There is very little up-and-down short radius bobbing, like the powder footage that is all too common these days on center-mounted skis. In its place: incredibly fast, slarving, angulated skiing in bottomless conditions that brings powerful, reeling, and vertical sprays.
