Taking its name from the imposing peak located behind Whistler that contains maybe the biggest couloirs in the valley, the Prior Fissile Snowboard helps you get after it with a longboard-inspired shape that turns on an absolute dime. With a pointy nose, tapered, directional shape, and 6. 5m turning radius, the Fissile lets you surf waves of pow like you would the ocean--producing face shot after face shot--and keeps you floating over thigh-deep snow with minimal effort. Since the elongated nose doesn't touch down unless you're truly in the deep stuff, we recommend you ride the Fissile about 8-10 centimeters longer than what you usually ride. The Powder Rocker hybrid profile employs camber underfoot to maintain edgehold and response on windblown slopes and exposed big mountain lines, while the huge rockered nose planes over fresh powder with ease. Triax glass gives the Fissile a medium flex for stable and powerful control when arcing turns and dropping cliffs, while maintaining a surfy feel for slashing low-angle powder in the trees.

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.
