Red, green, blue, and the Folsom Primary Ski--that's all you need, unless you have crazy trichromatic vision or like to spend your ski time on skiboards, which you probably don't (and definitely shouldn't). You might also want some winter clothing, a ski pass, and some whiskey tucked inside your jacket, but even those aren't as essential as the supremely rippable Primary.Folsom made its name making custom skis, but it also offers a few standard models, of which the Primary is one. It sports what Folsom calls its SRC (Shallow Reverse Camber) profile, with a full rocker profile that makes it easy to smoothly initiate turns, pivot on a dime and serve up nine cents change, and skip over choppy snow without worrying about burying a tip and testing the conditions with your face. The burly sidewalls prevent it from twisting when you really tip it over and rail a turn, and the tapered tip and tail give the Primary the ability to get into aggressive and smeared turns and cruise through champagne pow without that hooky feeling that can make powder skis scary instead of awesome.Inside, the Primary is built on a poplar, maple, and bamboo core, which provides a killer combination of stiffness, durability, flex, and light weight. Full-length carbon fiber stringers work with the wood to give the ski a solid amount of pop and a playful feel but don't interfere with the stable feel that makes the Primary such a fun mixed-conditions ski. Folsom topped--or bottomed, we suppose--things off with a super-speedy sintered base, so you'll be able to carry speed through the flats and down less-steep pitches, if you ever get lost and end up on the bunny slope.

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.
