You won't be able to make up your mind whether Armada's ARV 106 Ski is a freeride floater or freestyle spinner; it's equally good in the park as it is in powder. The wider 106mm waist certainly leads you to believe the ARV shreds best in the soft stuff, but then the AR Freestyle Rocker works with Spin Tip technology to help you twist off jumps like the ski was meant for such tricks. At this point, it's probably best to just be grateful for having such a versatile ski in your quiver. Armada built this ski with a Pop-Lite core composed of lightweight, surprisingly dense wood. Stringers of carbon and KEVLAR wrap around the wood to add a whole heap of stiffness without much weight. Durable sidewalls deliver a ski that will charge hard down big mountains, but won't weigh you down on backcountry booters now go build that jump you've been dreaming of.

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.
