Description

Don't fear the girth.

There are some people who will tell you that size doesn't matter—they're just insecure about their own tiny little "powder" sticks. The Liberty Genome Ski is a massive beast that can float in the deepest of the deep. Sure, the giant 141mm waist might be a little intimidating, but once you try this monster, your powder habit will turn into a full-blown powder addiction. The light, energetic bamboo and poplar core makes the Genome surprisingly lively and easy to manage, and a fiberglass laminate keeps it from getting floppy when you're driving it on hardpack—yup, hardpack. Even though it's obviously a powder ski, what's most surprising about the Genome is its versatility and all-mountain performance; believe it or not, there are cats who use it as their everyday West Coast driver, and though it might be hard to fathom, the Bomb Rocker's underfoot camber allows the Genome to be a far nimbler number than its dimensions would suggest. 

Of course, it's a monster of a pow ski, with full tip and tail rocker and a silly-wide platform that let it surf, slash, and skip over the deepest, cold-smokinest snow you'll ever find, and all the stability you'd expect from a ski the size of an old-school snowboard. Liberty incorporated a Durathane PU bumper into the construction to smooth out the ride and keep your topsheets lookin' tight, and gave the Genome a lightning-quick P-Tex 2000 base, because sometimes you impress the girls more by being fast. (It's also tough and easy to repair, which'll come in handy when you mob over some rocks while waving at tourists on the lift.) Even if you never mount 'em up, they'll be a sure-fire conversation starter if you leave them in your living room for visitors to ogle.

A must have powder accessory

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I first clicked into these skis I was a bit intimidated. Once I dropped into the powdery run all of my apprehension vanished. For such a big ski, this thing is super playful. Even the 194cm length is quick and nimble in the trees, although it really shines when you get it in the wide open bowls of your favorite ski area. I've skied lots of "super fattys" and this is by far the best all around performer.

Best pure pow ski on the market

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you are looking for the ultimate float in pow pow, the Genome is the best ski I've found. The generous rocker lets you ski as forward as you want and you won't get the going over the handlebars feeling. It's insanely quick edge to edge which is especially nice when you are finding stashes in the trees. On the flip side, you can point them straight and they are stable. For something that wide, they are surprisingly ok on hardpack, like groomers and icy runnouts from sidecountry gates. I can't emphasize how easy they are to ski in powder and they are a real leg saver. If you live in an area that gets a decent amount of pow days and want a quiver, you would be missing out if you don't have a Genome in your setup.
