The DPS Lotus shape is legendary among dedicated powderhounds. Whether you've been skiing pow in Hokkaido, the North Cascades, or the Wasatch, you've undoubtedly seen a pair of Lotus skis floating down pow that's too deep for most skiers, but a ski this powder-focused can struggle through snow that's only slightly variable, so DPS hooked their Lotus 124 Alchemist Ski with a Pure Carbon construction and vibration-damping units in the tip and tail to really change the game for fat skis on mixed snow. Of course, the Lotus Alchemist is still best ridden in bottomless conditions, but those vibration-damping units make sure you don't ride down firmer sections like you're skiing on jackhammers. DPS also updated this ski with a sandwich construction and a sustainable aspen wood core to give the ski a refined flex pattern that responds well to chopped snow in-bounds and variable conditions in the backcountry.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
