A full-on powder monster, the fat and rockered Black Diamond Megawatt Ski soars across the deepest of snow with the grace of a swan. And it's intelligent, too, with a less pronounced tail rocker and hard-carving traditional camber underfoot, for when the pow sluffs and the hardpack surfaces or when you're billy-goating to the pow. The wide waist and shifted-back center make this surprisingly versatile ski easier to maneuver. Its huge turn radius, pre-preg composite, and a poplar core give it a stable, smooth ride at hyper speeds. Sandwich construction and ABS sidewalls give this ski turnability and edging power, don't you doubt it, even for a ski that lives for pow. This is Black Diamond's fattest big-mountain ski.

Great Big Mountain Ski

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Holds firm on the firm, great float in the pow and cuts through the chop. All around great ski. I put my old Gotamas out to pasture (after many fine years...thank you Goats) and this is now my go-to. For a one-ski quiver leaning off-piste and prioritizing the pow, this ski is awesome.

Nothing better out there

I've skied tons of fatty big mtn skis and nothing else compares to the Megawatt. It crushes powder, holds a reasonable edge on hardpack and is quick in tight glades. You name it, it does it. For not having any metal in the topsheet, these dampen amazingly. I can't say enough good things about these skis so don't think twice. Buy Them.

Arctic all-round adventure ski!

The megawatt is my perfect ski. I tried the Justice and the Amps, and came back again and again to the Megawatts. I have 3 versions of them at this point. Some people call it a problem. I call it a solution. Perfect length, width, sidecut, and rocker for me. Skiing mostly in Utah, but I have taken them anywhere from west coast powder to east coast groomers to that weird in-between-winter-and-spring-time in Norway. I have some mounted with barons and some with tech bindings. great for both, but I will say i wish I mounted the tech bindings a touch back of where I mounted the alpine bindings for easier kick turns.

Needs more sidecut

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After riding a pair of the 12-13 model for a season, I was hoping for additional sidecut out of the newer generations. They're solid but could benefit a ton from a greater turn radius. Rocker is just right and so is the camber.

any changes from 12-13 to this 13-14...

any changes from 12-13 to this 13-14 Megawatt? I see the skin friendly tail bumper. What about rocker profile?
