The R 108 Ski is Whitedot's most versatile all-mountain ski with a propensity for playing through powder in the resort or backcountry. Its 108mm waist works best in softer snow, but it's not so wide that it won't be able to handle a bit of wind buff or hardpack. Whitedot added minimal camber underfoot to give you proper edge control, just in case you come across snow a little firmer than desired. Being a powder-friendly plank, the R 108 sports a heavily rockered tip to help you navigate deep powder both uphill and downhill. Whitedot built the core with vertically placed poplar and ash woods for a stunning combination of superlight comfort on the uphill and poppy performance on the downhill. Triaxle carbon and fiberglass laminates stiffen the R 108 for better control at higher speeds, and they keep the R 108 at a relatively slim weight of four pounds per ski. The R 108 boasts a durable ABS sidewall construction, and there's an aluminum tail notch for fixing climbing skins.

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.
