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.
