The versatility of a freestyle-inspired big mountain ski done right ski is hard to come by these days, but the latest version of the Anima provides. With the shape of a playful backcountry ski and the backbone of a big-mountain board, the Anima will pivot and scrub through whatever terrain you come across. The biggest update to the Anima improves big mountain performance by adding layers in the core which renders a stiffer platform for arcing turns at ludicrous speeds, whether you're skiing light and dry powder or chopped up crud. The next update is a slightly shorter turn radius, which improves maneuverability when you're dipping into your bag of tricks, while simultaneously improving responsiveness when you need to take the groomer back to the chair after an epic powder run. The Anima is designed to shred big mountain freeride lines in the morning, and session backcountry booters or resort side hits in the afternoon thanks to its stiff core and playful shape.
