The Liberty Helix Ski doesn't care which coast you live on, what you like to ski, or how you like to ski it it loves the pow, but it also loves crud, ice, or slop. This ski floats and maneuvers well almost anywhere, giving you the lively playful pop that will remind you why you started loving skiing in the first place. The mid fat 105mm waist provides a stable, predictable platform for blasting through crud or floating over powder, and it gives you plenty of real estate to land on when you punt that little cliff under the lift.

ABS sidewall construction and a lightweight but stiff and snappy bamboo laminate core ensures that you can drive this ski hard and it'll hang with you right to the bitter end. Liberty also laid the stiff, lively bamboo and poplar core up with triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber laminates, so this year's Helix is even poppier and more powerful than in years past.
