If a crown for the mythical quiver of one ski existed, the powder destroying, hybrid fun-shape Black Diamond AMPerage would be a strong contender. The addition of 8 mm ABS sidewalls has given the second generation of our popular Black Diamond AMPerage ski a new bite on firm snow, and they stiffened it beyond the contact point in the tail for easy landings. Whether drifting smear-turns in deep powder or laying trenches on the groomer back to the lift, this ski loves it all.
It's a little bit (back)country and a little bit rock and roll! The Black Diamond AMPerage skis can transition from powder noodling to hardpack jamming without getting hung-up in the transition. The dramatic sidecut and 115mm waist make the AMPerage fairly turny, but the tip and tail rocker don't allow the skis to get hooky or hang-up in a mosh pit of wet powder.
