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.
The addition of sidewalls gives the Black Diamond AMPerage telemark/randonee skis new bite, and stiff tails make big landings easy. These skis love to drift turns in pow and lay trenches on groomers.
The Black Diamond AMPerage Ski, their second-widest big mountain ski next to the Megawatt, is a powder ski with all-mountain versatility. It's got fat dimensions, rockered tip and tail, and a large turn radius for float, stability, and speed. Traditional camber underfoot and sandwich/sidewall construction give it pop and carving power. That lively poplar wood core also smooths out hyperspeed rides. Suddenly, landings are silkier than ever, ollies come fast and natural, and deep, high-speed drift-turns feel like a high-five with an old friend. Edging across an exposed chute to access pow' With camber and sidewalls, no problem. Staring down a bottomless bowl of Sierra cement' Rockered tip and plenty of girth at your service.
