They say that hitting the wall is a bad thing, but they're probably scared of anything burlier than the bunny hill and could never dig the park-shredding power of the Volkl Wall Ski. With a fully symmetrical twin-tip shape, the Wall makes riding switch easier than riding the lift, and the traditional camber pops like a weasel and helps you hold an edge like your life depends on it, because you really don't want to go flying off that icy 60-foot table head first--no gnar points are awarded for a face-stomp. The ideal combination of power, strength, and weight is tough to dial in, but Volkl's figured out the formula with its multi-layer wood core and carbon stringer construction. With ash underfoot for stiffness and binding retention, poplar in the tips and tails for pop, and a fiberglass and composite sheath surrounding the core, the Wall can rail turns at speed without sacrificing the playfulness and butterability that are so essential in good park ski. Accordingly, you'll never have to tone down your game (at least until patrol catches you and clips your pass for being too dirty) or choose between pop, edge hold, and stability.

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.
