SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – July 28, 2020 – DPS, best known for engineering class-leading skis and cultivating the roots of the sport, invites skiers to escape the heat of summer with ruminations of swirling cold smoke during the return of Dreamtime. The two-week event – which begins August 3, 2020 – marks the introduction of the new, award-winning Pagoda Piste and Pagoda Tour constructions, limited edition 15th Anniversary Cold Smoke Special Edition Alchemist skis and a limited-run creation from the Powderworks division. Available through key DPS retailers and online at dpsskis.com, a $200 savings is being offered on all Special Edition and 2020/21 skis.
Additionally, all accessories – including apparel, PHANTOM Permanent Waxless Glide and the brand's new skins and poles – are reduced by 15%. Dedicated skiers, the worldover, have historically taken advantage of this event, adding the perfect tools to their quiver, in anticipation of exhilarating turns to come.
Prized by those craving something truly rare and exotic, the 15th Anniversary Cold Smoke Special Editions are limited ‘artwork’ creations made in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the DPS factory. Available this year are the following models:
- Alchemist Wailer/Yvette 112 RP - 158cm, 168cm, 178cm, 184cm, 189cm
- Alchemist Wailer/Yvette 100 RP - 153cm, 163cm, 171cm, 179cm, 184cm, 189cm
For 2020, DPS breathes new life into the cult favorite RPC shape. Available in 186cm and 192cm lengths, the Powderworks creations have a 115mm waist width and are the ideal tool for charging directional skiers that value stability and strength over nimbleness and flotation. In time-honored DPS tradition, this Powderworks edition of the RPC features a sneak peek into construction improvements that result in a unique combination of both improved damping and power.
Fabricated with two hardwood species of disparate densities and grain orientations, along with innovative sidewall technology, the new Pagoda Piste collection features an inventive method of horizontally combining elements to produce a supremely damp and stable platform. The freshly launched front-side oriented collection takes center stage during Dreamtime. The 2020/21 offerings are as follows:
- Pagoda Piste 90 RP - 152cm, 157cm, 165cm, 171cm, 179cm, 184cm
- Pagoda Piste 94 C2 - 157cm, 165cm, 171cm, 178cm, 185cm
- Pagoda Piste 100 C2 - 157cm, 165cm, 171cm, 179cm, 184cm, 189cm
Also new for 2020/21 is DPS’ Pagoda Tour collection. By mating its proprietary new carbon laminate with a combination of ash and paulownia woods, and a purpose-built aerospace grade foam, DPS has engineered five lightweight shapes that have a distinct combination of power, energy and damping traditionally found only on front-side oriented skis. Freshly minted for 2020/21 are these backcountry-specific models:
- Pagoda Tour 87 C2 - 157cm, 165cm, 171cm, 178cm
- Pagoda Tour 94 C2 - 157cm, 165cm, 171cm, 178cm, 185cm
