We all need a pair of sendin' sticks, and there aren't many better than the Amplid Infrablack Ski. A legend that took a five year hiatus to recharge its batteries before returning triumphantly last year, the Infrablack continues the better-than-ever reputation last year's reintroduction established with a smooth, floaty tip rocker, powerful flat tail, and a lightweight but seriously burly core. As the dimensions make clear, the Infrablack's a big-mountain pow ski made to shred deep AK lines and stomp BC pillows at high speeds, but a pow ski can't afford to be a dead, damp missile. To avoid that, Amplid built the Infrablack on its Lite wood core complete with Hex02 windows, which pairs heavier wood at the tips with featherweight recycled paper honeycomb everywhere else for impressively low weight on a ski this burly. The burliness comes when Amplid wraps the core in its Full Carbon Jacket, lending big-send stiffness without weight. It also laid down a pre-stretched fiberglass laminate to give the ski torsional stiffness and stability that won't fade over the seasons. You don't want to feel unstable or squirrely when you're punching big straightlines or airs, so Amplid designed the Infrablack with a stiff, flat tail that lets you finish turns and stomp cliffs without feeling like it might be the last thing you ever do. Roundtop sidewalls wrap the topsheet over the edge for increased durability and edging power, and the Infrablack's tapered Flotation tips reduce swing weight and increase nimbleness by removing excess material from the tip, which also creates a smoother flex and better turning in soft snow. Amplid also used its famed Jekyll & Hyde geometry to shape the ski, maximizing surface area and effective edge without making the Infrablack feel like a huge and unwieldy set of planks, and Amplid didn't forget a big ol' sidecut to keep it stable at face-melting speeds.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
