CLOSEOUTS . A big mountain ski for hard chargers, G3 Highball alpine skis ensure your next run goes down smoothly, thanks to a wide profile with two sheets of metal and fiberglass reinforcements. Available Colors: SEE PHOTO.

Big skis don't always have to ski like big skis. 116mm under foot is great in the deep stuff, but what about the inevitable hard pack and chop' G3 has the answer with its widest ski, the Highball. The combination of poplar construction, low-mass tip and tail, and Sweetrise camber gives the Highball the versatility of an all-mountain ski with the added benefit of huge flotation in powder.

The Highball is the biggest ski made by G3. The PowerRide feature package is taken to a whole new level, thanks to the skis light weight Titanal deck construction along with the latest SweetRise camberline. This is the most predictably behaving ski they have ever tested. Never before has such a big ski been so easy to ski in all snow conditions. With a perfectly tuned camberline, you get tons of edge pressure on hard pack and just the right pre set deflection to initiate perfect turns on the loose snow pack. Its the ultimate freeride tool.

If you want a fat ski that still rips the hardpack hop on the G3 Highball All Mountain Ski. The fattest in the G3 line, the Hardball features traditional sandwich construction for a damp smooth ride, while a Titnal deck adds lateral stability and greater edge control. The Variable J sidecut makes for predictable turn initiation yet gives plenty of pop at the end. And G3's SweetRise camber provides ample edge control but allows for easy initiation in the mank. Get one up on Mother Nature on the Highball All Mountain Ski from G3.
