Description

What speed limit?

On some days, those super-fat, super-soft powder skis are the ultimate tool for playing in the trees and popping off pillows. On other days, when the snow is big and the terrain is even bigger, you find yourself cursing them and everyone who designed them as you try mob down the steep and deep with any kind of speed. If the low speed limit of those floppy powder skis ends up putting a fun limit on your ski experience, strap on the Folsom Giver Ski and discover just how good it can be on a ski that begs to go as fast as you do.

With a 110 or 114mm waist (depending on length) and a mild tip rocker, the Giver has plenty of girth to float in the deep, but is narrow enough to make quick edge changes and handle hard or variable snow. Where this ski really shines is on steep, high-speed descents in anything from blower pow to variable crud. The 32m turn radius is tailored to big-mountain chargers who are comfortable at very high speeds, while the slight tip rocker and lively poplar and bamboo core keep the ski lively and make it quick to change directions and scrub speed. Give 'er all you've got on the the Folsom Giver, and try not to cry when it gives you a lesson in speed.

  • Early-rise tip
  • Sandwich construction
  • Poplar and bamboo core
  • 110 or 114 underfoot (depending on width)
  • 32m turn radius

My Favorite Ski

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Giver is one of Folsom's more traditional skis, albeit at 114 underfoot. I've skied the entire last season on mine, and they are the most solid ski I've ever been on. They still look practically brand new on the bottoms, which deserves mad props to Folsom as I have railed rocks on them. So tough, so fun, the best ski you will ever buy. These are a great ski to rally all day anywhere on.

This ski does it all!

I skied this ski 90 days last season--conditions varied from 3 foot powder days to icy rock hard days. This ski truly does it all! It's well balanced, quick, and super stable. The rocker allows you to quickly scrub speed in tight situations and gives you stability for those big powder days. Icy bump to big Alaska lines--this ski eats it all up! The most noticeable feature of Folsom skis is the quality and construction. I have hit many rocks with this ski and it is amazing how well they take abuse. Not only are they burly, but they feel as lively as the first day I took them out. I would recommend this ski to someone looking for a one ski quiver.
