An all-mountain, early-rise destroyer with a heart of maple.
The Line Prophet 90 Ski is like the delicious jambalaya of all mountain skis: it blends the tastiness of an early-rise tip and tail with the zing of a snappy wood core, and the whole thing is topped off with the smooth finish of a go-anywhere-do-anything sidecut shape. This ski is a dish best served cold, on deep days in the trees or skied-out days blasting through choppy crud under the tram. Just be careful, because once your friends get a whiff of this powerful all-mountain ski, they'll want a taste too.
- Early-rise tip tip and tail camber profile (1/0mm, tip/tail) planes up over deep and inconsistent snow and won't hook or hang up so turn initiation is earlier and easier
- Directional flex gives this ski a softer tip for float in soft snow and a stiffer tail that provides power, stability, and control at high speed
- Composite-reinforced maple wood core offers long-term durability and a reliable flex pattern
- Titanal laminate reinforces the core with metal, aids the transfer of power to your edges, shovel, or tail, and encourages increased edge grip
- Fatty Base and Edge means that this skis has a 30% thicker base and edge for dramatically increased durability and tuning life
- Capwall, or a combination of cap and sandwich construction, combines the weight savings and responsiveness of cap construction with the edging power of sidewall construction
- 90mm width gives you a versatile platform that balances flotation in soft snow with stability at speed and snappy in-turn maneuverability
- 5Cut sidecut blends five different sizes of turn radius into a single sidecut shape for ultimate turn shape versatility, which means easier handling anywhere on the mountain

I a m going to give telemark skiing a shot. Thinking these skis with ntn bindings. I am 6 foot and 190lbs, is the 179 a good choice and is this a good all aroun
Yes and yes. Great ski for what you are thinking.

Hi there. I'm an experienced skier, 6' 1", 175lbs. I'm really keen on the LP 90's, but trying to determine if 172 or 179 would be best for me? I've read that these "ski short", so maybe I should lean toward the 179? I've been skiing on Rosi Z9's that are 170cm the past couple of years. I like to ski everything - groomers, bumps, pow, trees, bowls, etc. Thanks! - Mark
Go Long! Have a pair of 90's & 100's in 186.
I agree go long. 179 shoudl do you well.
Hi, I'm an experienced skier, 40 years...
Hi, I'm an experienced skier, 40 years old, and just moved to the PNW. I'm looking for a good in-bounds ski for Mt Hood, Bachelor, and Whistler. Mt Hood is my local. Would this ski do the trick in the mixed conditions the PNW is prone to?
this ski is a good option, especially if you are coming from a more traditional waist width. if it were me i would look into the 100mm waist width range for that area.
Thanks Matt. I have been looking more at the 100 to 110 waist after talking to people in town; glad to hear you also think 100+mm is OK. Cheers!
Agreed on the 100+ for the NW. My favorite width here is 110+.

I am 6'3" 190ish and I would classify myself as intermediate but constantly looking to push myself. Most of my skiing will come in Jackson Hole in the future and I am looking for something that can handle the runs as well as take me through the trees and a little backcountry.
Is this ski a good place to start? I
Impressive all mountain ski
As an east skier these skis handled hard pack as good as anything I have every skied. What really impressed me was how well they handled fresh heavy wet snow and even plowed through the spring slop better than any ski I have ever tried
Prophet 90 Tele
I have the 172 Prophet 90 mounted with tele bindings. I was looking for a quick-turning and snappy ski that would rail the edges on the groomers. This ski more than meets my expectations. This is my primary front-side bump and groomer ski for skiing in the Rockies. I demoed a few other mid-fat all mountain tele skis - but am very pleased with the Prophet 90.
Hi, I demoed the 172 and liked it alot,...
Hi, I demoed the 172 and liked it alot, but I'm kind of curious about how the 165 would ski. I'm 5'6" 165 lbs intermediate i guess, or non aggressive adv skiing in the NE. I'm thinking the 165 will be more nimble and not give up too much stability and float, or will that size not do the ski justice?
Thanks for the question. When it comes to the Line Prophet 90, your vitals and where you ski, if the 172 length felt really good then I would stick with that and not go down in size. That 172 is going to feel more maneuverable and easy as you progress and if you start with a shorter ski than you need, that need to change the ski up to a larger size will come much sooner. Also, it's possible that you'll lose more than a bit of that stability with the shorter length.

Hi there, I'm looking for a solid all mountain ski to accompany my 4frnt CRJs and my Rossi Phantoms. I use my CRJs for any day where there's over 6" of fresh and my Rossi's on the icey days. I ski at Wolf Creek so I can usally find some pow stashes in the trees and lots of untouched at Alberta. I'm looking for a ski that I can use to hike up to all the techy areas. I also want the ski to be able to play around at the mountain late and early season. Ive been looking at the Prophet 90, Salomon Rocker 2 90, Moment PB&J, Rossi Scimitar,and the Moment Tahoe. Im a 155lbs. 6' teenager advanced skier. I want the waist width to be anywhere from 102mm to 90mm and the length anywhere from 175-182. Just trying to find the right amount of playfulness around the resort and the right amount of stability in the hike to terrain. Thanks for the advice!
Hey, Rooney. I actually just gave my Prophets their first run at Wolf Creek. They are a blast! I can tell you I took them all over the hill, from groomers to fresh, through trees, over moguls, everything. They handled it all fairly well, my only concession that I did want for a little more float in the really deep stuff. Maybe 3 or 4 mm more to avoid that edge drop. Phenomenal ski, though?I would highly recommend them.

I do a lot of backcountry skiing and was wondering if this ski would be compatible with a randonee set up? I am also looking for a ski that would perform fairly well in the moguls when I am one the ski mountain? If this ski does not work are there any other ski options that would fit what I am looking for.
Thanks for your help, John
This ski would work fine with a rando setup. It would be a good east coast "quiver of one" ski. It will do fairly well in the backcountry and still ski moguls well. You might also want to look at the Nordica steadfast as a similar ski. If you tend to do more backcountry or live out west look at the Line Prophet 98, Blizzard Kabookie or Nordica Enforcer if you like to charge.
I can't comment on the randonee set up but can regarding the bumps. At 6'2" 220 with 35 years of skiing (F*&K I'm old haha) I ran these this past season for over 50 ski days, they killed everything an East Coast mountain could dish out...and they were super stable in the moguls, including the over skiied icey shit :) Even stayed super stable at over 100km/hr. Great ski period. Only thing I would caution on is skier weight, this ski needs to be driven hard to hit potential, for a lighter skier that might be harder.
