Get Ahead of the Game

Now Is the Time to Buy Limited Edition Skis on the Cheap


It’s summer. Snow, and skiing, are still months away (unless you’re planning on heading to the Southern Hemisphere). But for those who dream of snow, the heart of summer is just about the time when the craving for perfectly arced powder turns drives you to your wit’s end. And for those who don’t, the warm weather doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be thinking ahead.

DPS, the maker of high-end powder and all-mountain skis, knows these things. The Utah-based ski brand recently kicked off its annual Dreamtime event — the only time of the year when its hand-made carbon fiber skis go on sale, and your only opportunity to snag a pair limited-edition, serialized and uniquely designed Alchemist models. The skis feature DPS’s proprietary damping tech, a modified flex pattern and one-off topsheet art. Dreamtime runs now until August 1.
