The Inuit have over 50 words for snow…. And so do skiers. Throughout the season you may encounter; chop, blower, slush, chalk, mank, bulletproof, sastrugi, wind buff, etc. Bottomline you can’t predict the conditions but you can ensure that you will have a ski that is ready to take on whatever kind of snow you may find. These faithful skis are designed to give you the confidence to ski any terrain regardless of the snow conditions. Equally adept as a resort ski or backcountry rig. The shaping of these skis allow for quick turns, an easily releasable tail, and a tip that will always stay afloat. The rocker profile of these skis provides excellent performance in powder and soft snow. Be ready for winter with a Shepherd as your faithful ski companion.
