You really want to go to work—what are the TPS reports gonna do without you?—but the doc says you need to take some personal time to rest up, recuperate, and get some pow in your face. To that end, he's prescribing a full course of the Line Sick Day 102 Ski, which is a powder-pushing, groomer-ripping, lift-riding, easy-skinning remedy for the nine-to-five blues.
A new addition to the legendary Sick Day lineup, the 102 gives you more float than the 95 but more versatility than the 110, making it the perfect stick for backcountry adventures where you're likely to meet equal parts pow, hardpack, and mank. The Maplelite Macroblock core features strong, powerful maple underfoot to provide stability and edging power and lighter, poppier aspen in the tips and tails to serve up the playful pop that made Line famous (it also cuts down on weight, which makes the Sick Day easier to handle on the way up).
Line saved more weight by designing the Sick Day with CapWall construction, which combines a lightweight cap construction with 1/2-height sidewalls. The result is a ski that still edges powerfully but is lighter and flexes more smoothly than a ski with full sidewalls, so you can slither up the skintrack and through tight east-coast trees without feeling like you're going to end up with a faceful of pine needles. The rockered tip and tail also give you the ability to vary turn shapes, scrub speed at the drop of a hat, and float through soft snow, while the Thin Tip reduces flap and vibration and the underfoot camber lets you put down a hard edge when things get dicey. As a final nod to the Sick Day's backcountry jones, Line hooked it up with a notch Snaketail, which makes it easy to slap on skins for the ascent.
