Not everyone has the chance to rule a snowy mountain kingdom, but the K2 Empress Ski is designed to give you the power to preside over the park, pipe, trees, and steeps. Monarchs have to make a lot of tough decisions, like "How many peasants should I put in the stocks'" and "What ski should I ride today'" but the Empress makes the latter choice, at least, easy, with a full wood core that's light, poppy and durable, especially when paired with K2's unique triaxial braided fiberglass laminate. It's also been built with the Jib Rocker profile (rockered tip and tail, flat underfoot) and a sidecut for smooth, consistent turning and predictable performance on booters, pipe hits, and groomer days. The Empress' rounded tips and tails provide predictable turn initiation and easy release so you can scrub speed and vary your turn shapes like it's no big deal, and the tip and tail rocker allow for mellow switch riding and respectable powder performance. K2's Park Flex pattern makes the Empress softer in the tips and tails for easy buttering and smooth transitions, and the stiffer flat-cambered section underfoot lets you pop and pivot your way around the mountain. She's light and durable, too, thanks in part to the sidewall-free cap construction.

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
