Red, green, blue, and the Folsom Primary Ski--that's all you need. You might also want some winter clothing and a ski pass, but even those aren't as essential as the supremely rippable Primary. Folsom made its name making custom skis, but it also offers a few standard models, of which the Primary is one. It sports what Folsom calls its SRC (Shallow Reverse Camber) profile with a full rocker profile that makes it easy to smoothly initiate turns, pivot on a dime and serve up nine cents change, and skip over choppy snow without worrying about burying a tip and testing the conditions with your face. The burly sidewalls prevent it from twisting when you really tip it over and rail a turn, and the tapered tip and tail give the Primary the ability to get into aggressive and smeared turns and cruise through champagne pow without that hooky feeling that can make powder skis scary instead of awesome. Inside, the Primary is built on a poplar, maple, and bamboo core, which provides a killer combination of stiffness, durability, flex, and light weight. Full-length carbon fiber stringers work with the wood to give the ski a solid amount of pop and a playful feel but doesn't interfere with the stable feel that makes the Primary such a fun mixed-conditions ski. Folsom topped (or bottomed) things off with a super-speedy sintered base, so you'll be able to carry speed through the flats and down less-steep pitches if you ever get lost and end up on the bunny slope.

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.
