The classic quiver ski. This is the classic, carvy version of the one ski to do equal amounts of everything. It’s the hardest ski to get right, it needs to feel like a race ski on groomers and a fat ski on the pow days. The Groundhog is a multi award winner because it achieves that perfect balance. No matter which day you pull this ski out, you’re going to be smiling. This 100mm all mountain ripper has plenty of early rise in the tip but a flat, aggressive tail, and it’s solid bamboo core and double Kevlar layer in lengths 179 and over, make it tough, rock resistant, energetic and versatile.
RAMP Sports is a Park City based ski and snowboard company with handmade skis and snowboards factory direct. They are innovative in every effort to be environmentally and socially responsible and over-deliver on service and value. RAMP is using a modern vacuum-molding process modeled after aerospace processes. RAMP skis and snowboards are made with FSC certified bamboo wood cores. RAMP is using a core material that is 3 times as hard as poplar (what most companies use), but triple the cost. The result is a core that provides a dramatic improvement on the behavior of the ski. After their first year, they already have X Games, Dew Tour and Grand Prix medals and can boast a Freeskier Magazine Editor’s pick.
