Each year a special batch of uniquely designed and constructed Powderworks skis are released in limited, serialized volumes. Brought to life in the DPS factory in Salt Lake City, Utah, these Powderworks editions represent a window into DPS's most progressive R+D efforts and exploratory thoughts. It’s where advanced cores, laminates, rockers, and sidecuts are previewed – then built. These creations may one day make it into the yearly standard lineup, but as they stand; they are rare, cutting-edge skis.
Unrestrained by traditional ski construction, these designs are born from a fleeting moment on a memorable chairlift ride—then slowly brought to life in the R+D lab beginning that very evening. A small batch of Powderworks monikered skis are built every year for core members of skiing’s culture, whose lives revolve around their next epic powder turn.
With a 22 m radius and 110mm waist, the Powderworks Tour 110 C2 is crafted for fast hero turns down big backcountry faces. This Powderworks offering combines downhill-capable shaping with the backcountry ready Pagoda Tour construction, allowing for endless human-powered laps with the versatility to charge through any condition.
The Powderworks Tour 110 C2 occupies a unique space in the standard Pagoda Tour offerings. DPS considers the Pagoda Tour 106 C2 to be the true do-it-all touring and mountaineering ski. It’s a ski that gives you confidence regardless of the conditions, from steep refrozen ice to variable powder and crust. Conversely, the 112 RP is more of a soft snow focused ski, at home skiing endless powder laps in the trees on a storm day, or skipping over the mashed potatoes at the end of your day. The Powderworks Tour 110 C2 is like the 112 RP’s buff brother, with a bigger turn radius and much higher speed limit. It sacrifices a bit of the nimbleness that the 112 RP has, but with its wider waist and bigger tip, it’s much floatier.
