A playful twin-tip park ski that also loves powder and carving.
**NOTE: The Alchemist comes with its own unique lightening bolt topsheet. When selecting your skis you get to pick which base color and AMALGAM inlay color you'd like on the bottom of your skis. Choose from numerous color combinations (scroll thru images for examples).
Designed with the help of skiers in our community who log a lot of hours lapping the park. this is a classic park ski with its twin-tip profile, but it also maintains the all-mountain performance that is the hallmark of Amalgam design: It is light, playful, and responsive, with stability at speed and the ability to hold an edge in all conditions.
The Alchemist is designed to be more symmetrical with respect to the tip and tail widths offering a balanced swing weight when spinning on snow or twisting in the air. The twin-tip profile gives skiers smooth transitions when skiing backwards and landing jumps. The sidecut allows for fast, stable carving, and the traditional camber under foot maintains its grip in all conditions and turning angles. Rocker in both the tip and tail allows for more variability and edge-to-edge control when transitioning off kickers or slashing hidden powder stashes in the trees. Distinguished by its exclusive lightning bolt top sheet design, this ski maximizes fun on the mountain for skiers who want to play and slay.

"The profile is amazing. I really enjoy trying to ski everything the mountain has to offer, and in every condition, and these skis deliver. They will really lock into a solid carve, but are easy to make quick skidded turns in the bumps and trees. They were amazing in that 2 feet we got and on harder snow and corn so far. I had only skied a traditional camber before this, and I was a little worried that the rockered tip/tail would cause the ski to feel loose, and dull. Phil assured me that it was not, and he was right. As I have said to a bunch of skiers when asked, the ski is both forgiving and responsive, full of feedback. It has allowed me to recover from some mistakes I am not sure I would have on my old skis, but not without telling me I did something wrong, which I really appreciate. With this season I think it is safe to say I have skied them in most conditions from windblown ice, the groomers, corn and powder, both fresh and tracked. I have found them to be great in all of those conditions." --Chris L.
"The alchemist is hands down the gnarliest ski I've ridden. I like how they charge through pretty much anything. At high speeds, there's no real tip vibration. I skied them back East on bulletproof ice and they could grip right into it. I never detuned the edges and can slide rails no problem. In pow they're fun. Durability wise, so far they kick ass. I've been beating on them kind of hard and haven't have any problems." --Nate H.
"They really felt like extensions of my feet and didn't feel like they had a mind of their own. Initiating turns, rising over powder, carving through tracked out ice these suckers just seemed like they wanted to stay out and play." --Robin P.
