If you alternate between hunting down the resort's biggest lines and dropping sidecountry gates into untouched snow, then the Faction Dictator 3. 0 Ski might be the thing for you. Designed for freeriders who need a ski that can handle all conditions, this ski has a versatile yet powder-loving 105mm waist width, so you'll have no problem cruising through hard-packed or choppy groomers while you wait for ski patrol to open up the good stuff. Thanks to the rockered tip you'll be able to surf through waist deep powder, while the camber underfoot and freeride flat tail ensure edge grip and control for hard-charging runs and steep technical turns alike. The paulownia and poplar core reduces weight and gives you a responsive ride that you'll love when you're bouncing through tight backcountry tree lines, and dual titanal layers dampen vibrations when you reach higher speeds or zip down icy slopes. A full sidewall construction gives you bomber durability for any rocks and roots you'll be brushing up against, and with a backcountry-friendly weight and a tail-clip for climbing skins you'll be ready to scope and shred any line.

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.
