The award winning Apostle is the only ski I need in my quiver. Rocky Mountain Underground manufactures burly skis for aggressive riders. The UHMW sidewalls are over twice as thick as the industry standard, making the ski resilient to lateral impact and edge blow out. World Cup sintered bases are 2.2 mm deep, making core shots less likely and giving you many more base grinds over the years. The edges themselves are thicker and stronger, so you would have to take a serious hit to ruin this ski in a single impact. And when it comes to performance, the Apostle is versatile enough to handle any conditions you may throw at them.
