DPS Lotus 117 Skis
The Lotus 117 is your ever-reliable friend. Take it for big lines in Alaska and long powder tours in the Wasatch to smoothly arc through crud and farm the last pow turns at the resort. The rockered and tapered tip is designed to float over the snow and cut through any weird variations in snow.
The ski has a mount point that sets you up for powerful directional skiing, and gives balance to pivot turns in tighter spots. Paired with a moderate pintail that helps you float on snow, this is a ski that allows you to make the most of powder in any situation.
25 years of powder ski innovation has led to the current line of Lotus skis. When Peter Turner and Stephan Drake joined forces in 2005, the seeds were already planted for key innovations thanks to their prior experience with powder ski engineering. The Lotus skis revolutionized powder design by experimenting with wide waist widths, rocker, reverse sidecut, and Spoon technology, which ultimately made DPS the first skis to feature beveled tips.
Lotus materials are each individually selected as the best in class. We look at performance characteristics, strength and durability, and into the sustainability metrics of the materials. The aim is to make powder skis that are energetic, powerful, and stable. We also need them to be trustworthy and have a long life. We’re stoked when we see our skis from 10 years ago ripping down the mountain.
