The frontside, all-mountain ski. Mostly you ski where the snow is groomed or harder, so of course you need a ski to rip those runs to pieces. But you really love powder, trees, bumps—and your trip to where it’s fluffy and deep. Can one ski do all that with the special priority for front side high speeds? It can now. The Woodpecker feels like a wide race ski with a perfect fall line turn radius. And it has just enough early rise in the tip so it’s catch free and fun in the deepest and cruddiest snow. The tail is flat and strong, with lots of energy and rebound. The solid bamboo core and full Kevlar layer 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.
