Line asked big mountain skiers what their dream ski would be like, and invariably, the answer came back that it would be a ski fat enough to handle deep powder skiing and also have the ability to rail turns on hardpack and ice. Line listened, and came up with the latest version of the Mothership. Designers discovered that 111mm was the magic waist width to hold an edge on any hard snow condition, while maintaining flotation in powder. Then, they added an early rise tip to increase flotation even more. A huge turn radius is ideal for guys and girls who are into bombing huge pieces of real estate in one turn (or less), and the Maple Macroblock construction makes the Mothership lightweight, stiff, and super durable.

  • Base and edge are twice the thickness of a standard ski for extreme durability and impact resistance
  • ABS sidewalls dampen vibration
  • Maple Macroblock Core for light weight, durability and long lasting camber
  • G-Cut five radius sidecut provides powerful turns with less tail hooking
  • Titanium Metal Matrix die cut laminate adds power where you need it and reduces weight where you don't

Got the 195s on clearance last spring and just got them mounted, at center point, with Marker Comp 14.0 bindings. Just tried these out last weekend at Schweitzer Resort, ID. "Pend Oreille Premix" rather than "Cascade Concrete." About 8 inches of heavy/semi set, topped with 3 inches (plus equal that of blow in some spots) of semi-light new snow. Choppier and bumpier as the days went on. I'm 52, 235 lbs, and the more I pushed these the better they responded. And boy did they respond. Absolutely crush chopped up, semi-set PNW "powder" to steal a phrase. Was able to just carve through the choppy bumps left after the morning ski out with barely a nudge. Can even butter them if you use a little tail pressure to slide between the trees.

And, as I hoped, significantly more stable at speed than my Solomon Rocker (originals). There is a speed limit, but plenty fast enough for an old fart like me.

I've read a review elsewhere saying they won't carve, but the only times they didn't carve for me was when I wasn't stomping on them hard enough. But press the shin into the front of the boot, and they rail.

The only qualification is that they are heavy and apparently my legs aren't used to that kind of weight. Tuckered out by Sunday afternoon.

RIP Mothership

    I've already reviewed these elsewhere, so this is a lament on the passing of this amazing ski. Line have stopped producing them for the 11/12 season - the new Enforcer looks to be similar, I know nothing about it though. Anyway, Backcountry has completely sold out of stock and only a few places have any left at all. My original set are looking quite beaten up now so I've found a 2010 pair for the price of just £249. My advice is to find some and cherish them. They are the finest all round ski I've ever had the pleasure to ride.


      Fast, stable, turn on a dime and crush crud. Not a lightweight, but easy to ski nonetheless. Great for a powderday after the 11 am when chunder abounds inbounds. They never feel hooky in the crud and have decent float in pow for a charger. Muthas rock.

      yes please.

        This ski gets it done everywhere. I'm 5'11" and 185 lbs and ski the mothership in the 185cm length with marker dukes. Yes, they're heavy. Do more lunges and squats than you normally would. I've done short (about an hour and a half) skins and been just fine. Just be ready to smile and laugh while cranking GS (or bigger) turns on anything. Unbelievably stable ski with edge hold for days. Fantastic and fast in all conditions. Loved, loved, loved them on groomers. They don't float in 18" of PNW "powder" as well as I was hoping. But they were great when the snow was lighter and drier and not so manky.

        Ok 3rd season now on these and I truly can not fault these skis. They rip on anything and everything. The slight rocker in the front and trad through the rest of the ski coupled with it stiffness make for a plank that holds in hard pack and ice like a 90 width ski and as deep as you like at the other side of the spectrum. Even gone as far as to make my 185's my backcountry skis with Marker Dukes (yeah it is a heavy package...but only when on ya back!!) and a set of 195's for the on piste stuff. I love em big and these things just eat it up with as much as I can feed them and rip, flow and slash, drop lines and are rock solid anywhere. Skied many many skis in my life on snow and these take the cake.
