Your instincts better be good when you're reaching raw speeds on a pair of wooden sticks flying down the resort, but if those sticks are Head's Raw Instinct Ti Pro Ski, you like your odds. This ski's design is meant for rallying through chop, tightly carving on perfect corduroy, and railing across icy groomers. The ski's reliability, edge grip, and smoothness are products of a myriad technologies, the most prominent of which is Head's ERA 3. 0 design, which blends the rocker profile, sidecut, and rebound energy to vary turn shapes, allow easy turn initiation, and balance the ski's turn-finishing power with the ability to scrub speed quickly and easily. The Raw Instinct is built with Head's Allride Rocker, which features a slight tip rocker to smooth out choppy snow and allow for progressive turn initiation, alongside plenty of camber to give the ski snap, pop, and power. Snappy camber doesn't mean you're going to get tossed around by the smallest bumps, though, because the addition of a Graphene laminate keeps the Raw Instinct lively and energetic without bouncing you off your feet. Graphene is a sheet of carbon that's incredibly thin but has the strength and rebound of far thicker laminates to provide loads of energy without feeling heavy or hard to control. The Graphene layer works in tandem with the ski's light wood core and WC Sandwich Cap construction to keep the Raw Instinct light and easy to ski, and the UHM C base is fast as lightning, so you can zip down the frontside at top speed.

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.
