If there's already a foot of snow in your driveway, it's time to take out the G3 Empire 115 Ski. This fat, floaty ski, designed specifically for ladies or lighter riders, features a softer flex and rockered tip and tail that enables fast sweeping pow turns in steep terrain, open bowls, and tight trees. Thanks to the Empire 115's progressive SweetRise 2 camber profile, you're able to float on powder, be agile and nimble in deep snow and cruddy chops, and make slarvy turns in soft snow. And because of its 115mm waist the Empire 115 is able to hold a strong edge in hard pack so you're not all squirrely when you ski groomers to make your way to the lift, tram, or gondola. Armed for battle with G3's PowerRide construction, this big mountain ripper comes stacked with an ABS sidewall for bomber construction and durability while its full tip-to-tail Poplar wood core offers superb strength, lightness, and pop. With two sheets of Titanal aluminum to cut down on chatter and vibration and two layers of Tri-directional glass for torsion and flex, the Empire 115 provides a smooth ride for straightlining and making big arcing turns down steep, wide, open terrain. G3 gave this powder plank Rockwell C48 steel edges for sharpness and strength while a P-Tex 2000 Electra base supplies durability, speed, and wax absorption. So the next time you find yourself looking down upon a pristine field of steep pow hold on tight and enjoy the fast ride while pow hits you in the face.
