With a 115mm waist, The Dictator 4. 0 Ski is the fattest plank in Faction's Dictator lineup, which would make it biggest boss over big mountains everywhere. It's in charge of stomping all the powder down to ice, and it's always the dictating line that all other skiers try to match--although, what other ski could straight-line a steep couloir with such finesse, or wiggle down a powdery apron with perfect asymmetry' The real question you should be asking yourself is if you can handle the responsibilities of riding a boss as big as this. Checking in over four pounds per plank, the Dictator 4. 0 is certainly on the hefty side of touring skis, but Faction added a tail clipping point to the back because it is the boss, and if it wants to find powdery stashes in backcountry terrain, then you better heave it up there. The rocker tip and tail help you set the skin track in the deeps, and of course enjoy the well-earned, powdery ride back to the car. Faction added a bit of camber underfoot to help you spring out of turns, and it'll help hold an edge if you ever encounter firmer sections on a powder day.

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.
