The DPS Spoon features such a drastic rocker – the upward bend that improves how skis float in deep snow – that it extends across so its edges bend up like a spoon. The result is a powder-only ski that's buoyant even on edge. It yields a more advanced way of skiing, one that mimics the slashing possible on a surfboard. [$1,300; dpsskis.com]
