As immune to a siren's call as you may be, there's no denying the tantalizing allure of fresh snow--something that the bewitchingly fun DPS Skis Women's Zelda F106 Foundation Ski comprehends very well. Designed for female rippers who like to indulge themselves in a little bit of everything, the Zelda boasts a women-specific mounting point, which not only makes for a more savory and powerful skiing experience, but also means you don't get thrown uncomfortably into the back seat. Though, much like its male counterpart, the Zelda adapts to a plethora of terrain, so you're able to cruise through the resort or tour up yonder into the backcountry. Now, this information is all good and fun, but without a little proverbial moisture and colliding ice crystals, it's all just empty promises instead of coldsmoke. Starting with its 106mm width waist and partial twin tip construction, the Zelda crushes powder and crud alike, so you're not left hanging out to dry when you're unsure as to what the upcoming season brings (especially considering the last was all like "to snow or not to snow"). To further reinforce the Zelda's adaptability, the rocker-camber-rocker construction is complemented by a tapered, flatter sidecut (DPS' paddle tech design) that encourages smooth and effortless turn engagement--one that's quickly finished off by a smooth exit. And while most skis with the aforementioned rocker type would leave you chattering over varied terrain like a wind-up toy that's had too much caffeine, the Zelda is fashioned with a damping, bi-phase bamboo and poplar core that ensures a responsive and powerful feel underfoot. Not to mention, the ski's textured topsheet, unidirectional carbon, and triaxial fiberglass laminates assure hard-wearing durability. However, if you're worried about your need for speed being catered to, fear not: the Zelda is finished off with a glossy (so to speak), sports-car-like World Cup Race bases.

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.
