I spent the majority of my season skiing DPS' Wailer 112RP Hybrids and found them to be an an unbelievable resort and sidecountry powder ski that's remarkably versatile nearly everywhere else. When Jackson Hole's snow report calls for something other than fresh powder, however, I typically find myself reaching into my quiver for a different type of ski. DPS' Wailer 99 Pure compliments the 112s perfectly in this regard.
The Wailer 99 demos I was sent didn't show up until after the Tram closed for the season, but I skied them on Teton Pass for three days in May and loved them. The ski's pure carbon fiber construction made the steep Mount Glory bootpack noticeably more enjoyable (they're 30 percent lighter than a comparable fiberglass skis) and they rode great in corn conditions. If paired with Dynafit bindings, I imagine they'd make a dream backcountry ski.
Compared with the 112s, the 99s are 13 mm skinner underfoot and have about half as much tip rocker and third as much tail rocker. This makes them a more aggressive ski in variable all-mountain terrain, like the spring conditions I found myself in on Teton Pass. They also would do well in a wide variety of terrain found both on- and off-piste at Jackson Hole. I can't wait to get back on a pair this winter.
