Publish date:

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – November 16, 2020 – DPS, makers of the world’s most advanced skis, and Protect Our Winters (POW), advocates of climate change reform, have joined forces to create a limited quantity of the new, award-winning Pagoda Tour 106 C2 ski that feature the POW logo and a factory PHANTOM-treated base. Available now at dpsskis.com, a portion of each purchase of these rare creations will be donated to POW to increase awareness and action about climate change.

“POW’s mission to protect our world for future generations fits perfectly with the long-term sustainability goals of DPS,” said Steve Kropf, VP of sales for DPS. “We wholeheartedly believe in fighting climate change, and this partnership is a great way for skiers to join that mission. The work that Protect Our Winters does to preserve our planet for the next generation of skiers is of the utmost importance, and we are proud that we can help contribute to such a worthwhile cause.”

"Partnering with DPS allows us to continue to engage with passionate outdoor people and help them protect the places and lifestyles they love from climate change," said Mario Molina, executive director of POW. "With a portion of every pair of skis sold benefiting Protect Our Winters, and the addition of DPS' eco-friendly PHANTOM Permanent Waxless Glide treatment to every ski, this collaboration will help us continue our work in turning outdoor lovers into a community of advocates, providing opportunities for advocacy, and building a sweeping climate movement that will lead to a cultural shift of our nation's attitude on climate change."

DPS and POW, both well-known for their love of snow, chose to partner on the lightweight, backcountry-specific Pagoda Tour iteration of the 106 C2 shape because of the versatility and stability offered when encountering the full array of snow types found beyond the boundaries of resorts. With the addition of PHANTOM Permanent Waxless Glide, DPS’ inventive base treatment that improves glide across all conditions, skiers will experience a higher level of hassle-free performance while knowing their purchase benefits a worthy cause.
