Whitedot Freeride is a European brand recently expanding to the US market. They make a wide variety of skis for all disciplines, constructed with the best materials and made to the highest quality. Last year I skied on the new Fred Syversen pro model, the Ragnarok XII, for the second half of the season. These are Fred’s dream skis, and now big mountain legend Jeremy Nobis is rocking them. This ski is hands down the stiffest, most stable ski I have ever skied on. I skied these in every sort of condition and they worked extraordinarily. No matter powder, crud, corn, and ice they can handle it all. They will rail like a Super G ski (37m radius) or smear like a fully rockered fun ski.
At high speeds they are incredible due to the stiffness and surface area (120mm underfoot). They have a small amount of camber and significant tip rocker allowing them to work well not only as a big mountain ski, but also as a powder ski. If you are a confident skier they can even feel playful at slow speeds due to their dimensions and weight. They are surprisingly light for the size of ski due to their high tech construction. They are also very durable and will no doubt last for multiple seasons. I have skied on similar sticks throughout the last few seasons including: Dynastar Big Dumps and XXls, Bluehouse Shoots, and Line Motherships. These skis easily crush the competition. Not to say that they are for every skier, but if you like to ski at ridiculous speeds and STOMP airs then check these sticks out.
