Blending the best characteristics of Salomon's progressive freestyle and powder shapes, the Assassin lays waste to anything in its path with its versatile twin shape, Rock Out Camber, and snappy freestyle flex. Designed for rider looking for a board that can handle everything the mountain throws their way, the Assassin effortlessly transitions from morning powder in the trees to afternoons spent lapping the park. Proving its versatility, you'll find Salomon team rider Wolle Nyvelt riding the Assassin as he sends massive backcountry jumps in the Alps and spins off fluffy pillows into Japan's legendary powder. The Assassin has always been a board that could ride anything on the mountain, but it really came into its own as a deck for bringing your tricks to natural terrain features and waist-deep powder. We'd chalk this up to its balanced twin shape and Rock Out Camber, which gives you the locked-in carves and responsiveness of camber, but with extra float to ensure you're not submerged helplessly on powder days. This profile is entirely flat between the bindings, transitioning to camber under each binding, then uplifts with a good dose of rocker at the tip and tail. Ultimately, it delivers the best of both camber and rocker, ensuring the Assassin is ready for anything standing in its way. To ensure maximum pop, the Assassin employs an Aspen Select core with embedded Popster Eco Booster (i. e. bamboo rods) maximizing the overall snap of the board. ABC GreenRoll construction (stands for Advanced Bamboo Construction) replaces as much plastic and harmful materials with additives of natural bamboo and basalt, along with Royal Cork rails along the sidewalls. This results in a board that's much friendlier on the environment, as well as one that's extremely snappy and smooth across a wide variety of riding environments.

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.
