Whitedot Freeride makes high quality skis that are made to tackle big mountains. Their all-mountain ski, “The Preacher,” does just that and more. I ski on the 189cm length and have been loving them since I mounted them up three weeks ago. They are great for every type of condition, they will float well in pow, make quick turns through icy chutes, and they are ultra-stable at high speeds.
The aspect that I enjoy most about this ski is the small turning radius (19m in the 189cm length). This feature helps most when skiing in tight situations and making fast turns on steep terrain. The tip is somewhat soft, allowing for the ski to be playful through moguls and crud. The tail and underfoot still have plenty of girth to allow for a stable ride at high-speeds. This is now my go-to ski for every day conditions, since it is such a versatile/playful ski. Try them out!
