It's a pretty simple skier's philosophy: you go where the powder is, and no boundary is going to stop you from enjoying a solid face shot. Faction's Dictator 3. 0 Ski holds a similar philosophy in that it feels right at home whether you're riding resort or backcountry--wherever the snow's softest. A 105mm waist puts this plank in the middle of Faction's Dictator series--not too fat, not too skinny, just right for all conditions--although it certainly has a penchant for powder. The Dictator's rocker tip and tail hold its own when you're cruising through the deeps, and there's enough camber underfoot to hold an edge when you ride firmer snow. The dual turn radius helps you initiate tight turns on icy, steep sections, and yet still allows wider turns on large, beautiful aprons covered in soft snow. The Dictator 3. 0 checks in around four pounds per plank, and Faction added a tail clip for climbing skins so you know it'll perform well 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.
