The Death­wish, a pop­u­lar ski over the last sev­eral years, gets bet­ter this sea­son with a stiffer tip and tail to help in vari­able con­di­tions. But it still main­tains its iden­tity with the unique triple cam­ber pro­file. With sep­a­rate sec­tions of mod­est cam­ber in front and be­hind the bind­ing com­bined with smaller cam­ber un­der­foot, the Death­wish has prop­er­ties of a stiff ski full of cam­ber, con­trary to the rel­a­tively for­giv­ing flex from the aspen and pine core. When tipped on edge, the cam­ber pock­ets change the ski’s ef­fec­tive edge ul­ti­mately pro­vid­ing more bite.
