TEN YEARS DEEP,

and we’re still hungry for that next storm, that next experience that defines who we are, and helps refine the products we make. That electric feeling as the first few wind-driven flakes of a storm arrive is the same feeling as the first turns on a new ski. Both occasions are filled with potential and expectation. It is up to us to make sure those first expectant turns stretch into seasons of stoked riding. After reaching the decade mark, it is natural for us to take stock of where we are as a company, and wonder just where the hell the last ten plus years have gone. We have learned a lot, skied some great days, and have continued to draw inspiration from the mountains in which we live and play. This year, Liberty is re-dedicating itself to the innovation and product-centric focus that got us this far. We are launching new models, bringing new technologies and manufacturing methods to our award winning products, and offering the most complete product line ever.

WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US IN NEXT DECADE OF LIBERTY.

LET IT STORM!

TAIL

5. BAMBOO BACKBONE Every Liberty ski features a hand-made, bamboo laminate core that is light, strong, lively, and eco-friendly. We fine tune each core and flex pattern for the intended application, but each core starts with the strength and durability of bamboo to give a dependably energetic ride, time after time.

ALL TERRAIN

ALL TERRAIN

ALL-TERRAIN We are drunk. We look at each other, candlelight illuminating our faces in ghostly pallor as the shadows dance against the wall and start to laugh. The laughter grows louder. We’re out of control, really, the Pisco mixing in our bellies with the wine and the beer and the sausages that only an hour ago where spitting and hissing on a jerry-rigged grill outside. It seems crazy that we’re here, in this tiny refugio perched high in the Andes. A place so far away from civilization that there shouldn’t be any wine, or beer, or sausages. But a road has been scratched into the mountain, and you can stuff your rental car full of supplies and beat the hell out of the undercarriage, and grind your way up here, to the refugio, right at the snowline, and cook your sausages and get drunk off your ass and watch the most amazing sunsets. And you can ski. And that’s why we are laughing, drunk, happy and full, because tomorrow we will ski, and it will be amazing. -Tom Winter ANTON SPONAR

THE VARIANT97

will carve in all snow conditions, yet has an easy-going personality that inspires trust at any speed. Precise turn initiation from the Hammer Rocker profile and multi-radius tip, combined with an energetic bamboo and poplar core make it a worthy partner anywhere on or off groomed terrain. A skin-friendly tip and tail keeps your terrain options open.

POWERFUL

edge grip and stability at speed on any snow surface. Titanal layer, stiff tail, and Hammer Rocker inspire confidence in terrain with consequences. Whether touring to access the best lines, lapping the sidecountry, or just demolishing your resort, you can count on the Variant113.

you get as you float weightless through powder, as your skis snap you into that next perfect arc, or as you stand at the top of that epic line. Find your freedom with responsive, fun skis from our Freeride line.

A COMBO

of performance and playfulness, with Stealth Rocker and a tapered tip and tail shape that makes both carving turns and slashing powder easier on the Sequence.

The Rila Lakes were frozen over, but we weren’t here to see them anyway. We had something else in minda zone accented and accentuated by a 700 people/hour Poma drag lift servicing a 950-metre ski run. The drag was built for the beginner pitch on its immediate right, however to its immediate left were some heavily exposed lines, chutes, and ridges with 50-degree entrances, couloirs, and lots of rock. In other words, perfect, fun, photogenic, slack-country hot laps. - Ben Wannamaker BEN WANNAMAKER

THE HELIX

is our best selling model for a reason. No matter where you live, or what type of snow you encounter, the Helix will handle it with stability and ease. Enough width to float, energetic bamboo laminate core, Stealth Rocker for easy turn initiation, and tremendous torsional rigidity combine in the perfect storm of ski versatility.

THE NEW

Origin reminds us all why we love to ski. Playful tip and tail Bomb Rocker is combined with a hard-carving midsection and the perfect waist width of 116mm. Quick and easy turning from the rocker and carefully matched multi-radius sidecut, the Origin makes any terrain your personal playground.

DON’T FEAR THE GIRTH.

The Genome is surprisingly nimble, due to tip and tail Bomb Rocker and lightweight construction. You can float, pivot, and romp deep snow, but can lay down tracks on harder stuff because of the unique camber profile. The Genome will make you a believer.

WOMEN’S

Even lighter cores, refined profiles,

and new shapes, make our Women’s line confident performers for your winter adventures.

For a long time the best compliment I thought I’d ever heard was, “Wow! You don’t ski like a girl at all.” In retrospect I think how incredibly demeaning that was. I have spent the last few years training, traveling, competing, and getting after it with some of the strongest athletes I’ve encountered in my many years of skiing and almost all of them are girls. There are some incredible role-models in the ski industry for women right now and I’ve never been prouder to be a part of a group of women that ski hard, support each other even in the fiercest competitive environments, and have fun doing it. So the next time someone tries to tell me I don’t ski like a girl I’ll smile and reply that yes, yes I do and I wouldn’t change that for the world. -Jaqueline Knutson

ALL NEW!

The Jinx sports a new, super light core with the strength and energy of bamboo and the lightness of paulownia and poplar. Stealth Rockered tips, along with a progressive tip to tail taper make the Jinx amazingly easy to turn, while still maintaining strong edge grip. Confident and fun, the Jinx makes it all seem easy.

AMAZING

versatility from Stealth Rockered tips, now even lighter. A 105mm waist, and a solid-cambered mid-section means the Envy will carve and float you through any snow conditions. Torsionally stiff, but with easy turn initiation, the Envy will do it all.

Progressive designs

to give you a solid platform for creativity, our freestyle skis have tons of pop, light weight, and the backbone to go for that last lap.

The view from the office is never too bad, but today the corduroy and the snow and the light came together perfectly. The white planet glistening in the fading sunlight. Being in the park with no one else and it looking that good makes me wish I had brought my skis to work. Just another evening at the office... -Zach Collins
