When winter hits there's nothing we love more than charging at Mach 10 speed down some steep groomers. Except for maybe ducking and dodging trees while we blast through fresh snow, then popping back on the trail to charge at Mach 10 speed down some steep groomers. Okay, we love pretty much everything other than slow wiggles, which is why the versatile Faction Dictator 2. 0 Ski is right up our ally. Its 96mm waist width can rip down corduroy cruisers with lots of control, and isn't so thin that it can't hang when the snow starts to fall. Especially not with a rockered tip and Faction's Surf Zone technology that helps us float through knee-deep powder lines. We've also got camber underfoot and a slightly rockered flat-tail design for better edge control, so whether we're arching huge turns or cutting it tight down steep slopes we've got a pair of skis that won't quit on us.
