Despite their somewhat ominous name, the Deathwish Skis are anything but doomsday and terrible--in fact, their construction is quite contrary thanks to the beautiful subtleties of Moment's Triple Camber profile. While most skis opt for full camber, full rocker, or camber underfoot and rocker in the tip and tail, the Deathwish takes things a step or three further by building in a short flat section underfoot, two more cambered sections fore and aft of the binding, and some rocker in the tip and tail for a mind-bending combination of hardpack edge hold and playful powder looseness. When you're riding the ski relatively flat, it can pivot and surf like a rockered ski, but get it up on edge and it'll bite into the snow like a hungry tiger into a juicy steak. The rocker profile of the Deathwish is seriously unusual, but the ski's graphics are downright tame by Moment standards. For all of you mid-century modern hipsters, the polished-marble look is pretty darn slick and it's protected by a sublimated nylon topsheet to stay fresh and clean the whole season long. Of course, the aesthetics are secondary, with the light and lively aspen core, stiff fiberglass laminates, and pop-enhancing carbon fiber stringers rightfully taking the top billing, seeing as they keep the Deathwish stiff on hardpack and playful in powder. The UHMW sidewalls, burly steel edges and speedy sintered base can take shots without calling it quits, and Moment even threw in vibration-damping VDS rubber layers for a smooth ride, and a reinforced layer underfoot for bomber binding mounts.

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.
