That sparkling patch of rock-solid ice you hit after boosting off the cat track is proof enough. Luckily, the DPS Women's Nina 99 Alchemist Ski doesn't care much for glitz and glamour--it rolls up its sleeves whether you find stashes of champagne powder or nothing but bumps and bulletproof. With an agile yet floaty 99mm waist width and a damp, powerful full-carbon core, the Nina boasts formidable versatility in variable snow conditions and serves as a steadfast daily driver for early season hardpack and steeps, playful days poaching pow-day leftovers in February, and spring corn harvesting. But it's not just the waist and core that bring balance and power to this all-mountain charger. DPS utilizes its trademark 3-D PaddleTech Geometry to sift out the golden nuggets from every ski day. When you're carrying speed on firm snow, a slightly cambered 18-meter underfoot turn radius sinks its teeth in for smooth, confident carves, and when there's fluff to be found, the gradually rockered paddle tip lends levity. And after a bell-to-bell day getting down and dirty on technical terrain, the Nina suggests you get your gold and glam fix with a glass of bubbly enjoyed in a location where you can scout your lines for tomorrow.

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.
