While it might be a shade difficult to abstain from cringing when you read the name 'Moment Deathwish Ski,' take note and remember what your dear ole Ma told you years ago--don't judge a book by its cover. So, case in point, the Deathwish is anything but doomsday and terrible, in fact its construction is quite contrary thanks to the beautiful subtleties of Moment's Triple Camber profile. While most skis opt for full camber, full rocker, or camber underfoot and rocker in the tip and tail, the Deathwish takes things a step or three further by building in a short flat section underfoot, two more cambered sections fore and aft of the binding, and some rocker in the tip and tail for a mind-bending combination of hardpack edge hold and playful powder looseness. When you're riding the ski relatively flat, it can pivot and surf like a rockered ski, but get it up on edge and it'll bite into the snow like a hungry tiger into a juicy steak. The rocker profile of the Deathwish is seriously unusual, but the ski's graphics are downright tame by Moment standards. For all of you mid-century modern hipsters, the polished-marble look is pretty darn slick and it's protected by a sublimated nylon topsheet to stay fresh and clean all season long. Of course, the aesthetics are secondary, with the light and lively aspen and pine core, stiff fiberglass laminates, and pop-enhancing carbon fiber stringers rightfully taking the top billing, seeing as they keep the Deathwish stiff on hardpack and playful in powder.

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.
