Wield the big, fat, and floaty G3 Empire127 Ski when you want to haul ass and hit airs down serious lines. Its full-rocker profile, with low-curvature rocker underfoot and higher-curvature rocker towards the tip and tail, delivers ultimate float that will never bog or dive. The 127-millimeter waist doesn't hurt, either, with its broad, stable platform. The tapered tip and tail also keep it streamlined and prevent wash-outs. This surfy ski doesn't compromise on stability, thanks to lightweight, double-layer Titanal reinforcement and tri-directional fiberglass laminate. A full-length poplar wood core lends this ski super strength and liveliness, while ABS sidewall construction enhances durability and give it torsional stiffness that makes turning in less than knee-deep snow a powerful breeze, so this fatty is more versatile and capable on firmer snow than you might expect. Rockerwll C48 steel edges are sharp and durable. This is G3's widest ski and will have you ruling the deep-snow domain.

All of the confidence!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This is my first pair of powder skis and I can't believe that I have ever gone without them! They give you all of the confidence in the world to try and then do anything on the hill! If you are considering these skis I say do not hesitate, just be cautious that the are a heavy ski!

Smooth, stable and quick

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

In the trees it's be quick or be dead. these crush it, the shape is great. Float is great even in 183 (measures 181). I'm 6-3 175 and usually go 185-188 cm, but wanted to be quicker and lighter. Well the metal makes them stable but the shape makes them quick. Great ski for storm chasing and deserves the awards

Smooth, stable and quick

Fun, versatile fat ski.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I bought these used cheap, thinking they'd only be good in deep powder. Boy was I wrong. The Empire 127's are by far my favorite ski. They have the perfect combination of stability and flex to handle well in powder, chop, groomers, crud, and yes even icy hardpack. Thanks to full rocker, they turn on a dime and never nose-dive. I drive them with G3 targa ascent tele bindings and old Scarpa T2's -- even with those wimpy boots I'm tackling terrain that would have terrified me before. Even on days with no new snow, I prefer these to my Atomic TM22 parabolic skis. Compared to other fat skis I've tried (BD Megawatts) they are easier to turn, and more playful.

The only downside is their weight -- at 9.5 lbs for the pair, these are not light, and they're a workout to say the least when touring in the backcountry. No matter -- they more than make up for it with stability, letting me carve clean lines, and not wipe out in choppy snow.
