Skiing is fun. It's a fact. Flying down the mountain, biting your edges into the snow, snaking between the trees, feeling the wind hit your face and the gravity hit your toes. There's nothing like it and that is an objective truth. The Armada ARW 96 Skis are built as an homage to this unarguable fact. They're not specialized tools for mountaineering first descents or maximum hardcoreness, but if you're trying to go to the resort and have one heck of a time, there's nothing better. These all mountain freestyle skis are at home in the park, on the steeps, or on the groomers. They're poppy, dependable, and just plain fun.
