Americans are all about speed, so how come we've never made a killer skimo ski until now' There's no good answer, but Salt Lake City's Voile decided it was time to change that, so it made the new WSP Ski to be a superlight randonn''e and mountaineering ski in the finest Euro Lycra tradition. Designed to get you up in a hurry and down with reasonable ease, the WSP Wasatch Speed Project weighs just 1. 75 pounds per ski, courtesy of its ultralight Paulownia wood core and carbon fiberglass cap construction. The design also keeps the WSP plenty stiff for serious descents down icy couloirs and techy faces, which compliments the sturdy underfoot camber. It's only 63mm underfoot, but the moderate tip rocker helps the WSP handle soft snow better than it's width would suggest, so you won't be overwhelmed if you encounter some pow on your trip back down to the parking lot.
