Skinning by headlamp, climbing frozen couloirs before the sun hits, summiting, and now what all ski mountaineers dream of . . . the technical descent. Alpine tradition combined with contemporary construction makes the Cassiar the choice for the ski alpinist.
The Cassiar 95 Tour 1 is a modern take on a traditional cambered alpine ski. A more aggressive side cut and flat tail allow this ski to make precise carving turns and hold an edge when you need it the most. This ski is at home on firm snow, whether that is a technical couloir or on the front side of your home mountain. What makes this ski a pivotal asset for the ski mountaineer is the lightweight Tour 1 construction that allows for faster alpine travel while not compromising on the downhill performance.
DPS’s Tour 1 construction uses the lightest, strongest and performance proven materials available to ski makers. The core is balsa which allows for maximized weight reduction and damping. The balsa core is given strength by adding “prepreg” carbon fiber laminate, which adds stiffness and durability. DPS then adds a cap construction which decreases weight even further by eliminating the traditional side wall. Finally, narrow profile edges are added to shave off still more weight, making the Cassiar the vehicle of choice for your next alpine mission.
