  • The Xplorer made its debut in the Apache series last year and because of its versatility became an immediate success. Being the widest ski in the Apache line gives it an advantage in soft snow to help you track out the resort on those deep powder days but enough sidecut to lay down trenches across the corduroy on those groomer days as well. The broad range of versatility and high performance comes from a unique combination of an 84mm waist, metal laminate cap construction and generous 17/16 progressive sidecut that allows it to perform well on both soft and hard conditions.
