Looking for some fat boys to add to the quiver, but not quite ready for a full rocker reverse camber ski? Take a long hard look at the Liberty Double Helix. The generous proportions of these skis (150/121/140mm) will keep you afloat in the deepest Alta powder. The flex is also just right. Not too stiff but not floppy. The bamboo core, which Liberty pioneered the use of, is light and lively. The P-Tex 4000 Electra base is possibly the strongest base I’ve ever skied on. I found plenty of rocks and stumps in December and the Double Helix’s came through without a core shot or sidewall issue. Obviously, these skies were designed for powder days, but they handle very well on the groomers. And they just blast through the crud. There are several mounting lines on the skis and I went with the standard line and that has worked great. I would recommend mounting on the standard line unless you plan on landing and skiing switch all the time. Maybe most importantly, the graphics are pretty cool.
