Head Skis USA A-Star SW Ski

Go big.

Head's A-Star SW Ski may not make you the best skier on the mountain, but it will give you the power, float, and stability you need when you're slaying pow, ripping big lines, and sending big drops. New to Head's lineup, these big mountain boards are geared towards aggressive freeskiers with a wide 118mm waist and versatile profile that dominates everything from hero snow between the trees to scraped-out chutes.

Made with Head's Sandwich Cap construction, the A-Star has a half-cap build that maintains vertical sidewalls for added durability and easier edge repairs, but it has a capped topsheet that is resistant to chipping and wear, so your skis still look killer after a season's worth of heavy riding. Tip rocker offers float and easy turn initiation in deep snow, while camber underfoot and a flat tail keep the ski stable and powerful when conditions require a more active skiing style. Head's Tip and Tail Stabilizer System works with the Independent Suspension System to limit vibrations, resulting in a damp and stable ride when conditions turn firm.

Hey I love the Blizzard Cochise but am looking for a fatter underfoot ski to handle the heavy northwest powder. Is the A Star a similar ski? It seems so, stiff, low profile tail, long turning radius... I guess I'm looking for comparisons, seems like a great ski but there's little out there on it. Thanks!
