While your buddy's metal-layered, point-it-and-go skis are the equivalent of serious literature, Faction's Chapter 116 Ski is more of a choose-your-own-adventure plank. With a rockered tip and tail, and generous 116mm waist, it'll start its story off by surfing pristine pow and slamming turns in untouched bowls, but the sturdy sandwich construction and pre-stressed STP core technology give it enough backbone to rally down groomers and bust through crud when the day's story takes a sudden turn for the firm. Low camber underfoot gives the Chapter some extra bite on hardpack, and the poplar and beech core stays poppy and quick with some tough fiberglass laminates giving it extra snap and stability for big airs and solid stomps. Faction pressed the Chapter with its rocker-and-camber-blending Transition Zones for a super-smooth feel and progressive turn initiation, and it finished the board off with a fast and tough P-Tex 4000 base with steel edges, so the inevitable rocks and logs that you'll ding won't put an end to your session.

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.
