      Product Story
      We set out to build Sammy a powder twin tip that is stable enough to charge exposed lines and take big hits with maximum confidence yet light enough for foot-powered backcountry access. A strategically enhanced Caruba Core allows these concepts to merge while the rockered Pin Tip and Tail guarantee quick turn initiation, reduce drag and further lower the swingweight. Lightweight and stable, but offering plenty of release when needed, the Whitewalker perfectly compliments Sammy's laid-back, surf-inspired style that's peppered with sudden bursts of all-out aggression.

All over the world, all the time. This ski, hands down, might be my favorite I’ve ever owned. The contact points are in the perfect spots to make it feel a little smaller. The skis are super light and swing weight is ridiculously low. The tapered base at the tip allows for smooth nose butters in soft snow while the flex at the tip is just perfectly soft-ish but snappy. The tails are made for charging, stiff and light feeling that provides a very responsive release of energy while giving you the backbone to ski anything as hard as your heart desires. These are my new babies. Thanks Armada, hi Alyssa.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2021-01-20</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2021-01-20" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1086159047"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Shaun_907</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Light sender ski</span> <span itemprop="description">I bought these as my main powder ski and put the Shift 13 binding on them. The setup is much lighter than I expected. I got them in a 192 since I'm a big guy and mounted them at the "Sammy Carlson" line. (a few cm back from center) They handle cliff landings pretty well and are really stable but are still playful and easy to whip around. The flex pattern and shape make for a really fun powder ski that you can still charge with. I have only toured on them a few times and so far no issues, They have enough base touching the snow to keep good grip touring. Very happy with the setup.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-12-23</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2020-12-23" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1113932732"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Kbob94</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Funnest ski out!!</span> <span itemprop="description">These skis are hands down one of the great skis on the market! I’ve owned last years version and this years version and I never wanna ski anything else. No matter the conditions this ski handles soo well. It rips the hard pack and beat up snow better then any other ski in it’s class. Riding pow on the ski is a absolute dream! The pin tech tip snd tail is life changing, it completely opens up a totally new approach to view the mountain and pow lines. This ski tours amazing but it’s just as happy ripping the resort. If you need a 1 ski quiver there’s not a better ski out there for you to truly enjoy your day on the mtn.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2022-02-12</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2022-02-12" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1087955352"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">MaxRittmeister</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">The perfect synthesis</span> <span itemprop="description">Sammy created what I have been looking for for years. Back in the days I bought the first JJ when it came out. This was a game changer for me at the time. Over the years I tried many other skies from both Armada and other brands, but ultimately I always returned to the JJ as my goto pow ski. I believe this is due to its shape. The JJ has a very strong taper and is quite symmetrical which makes it perfect for my skiing style (I prefer non-directional skis that are playfull): the ski is playful yet has some dampness, is extremely maneuverable in tight trees (for its size), is easy to spin and has a great tradeoff between stability, surfiness and the ability to shed speed. For some people, this ski simply works. I never felt I could not charge it hard enough, and I tried. However, I always felt some things could be improved. My number one desire was that there would be a stiffer version. For doing tricks over >30ft cliffs I prefer the Magic J as it provides a better landing platform, partially as it is wider but also stiffer. In addition, the JJ is quite heavy at 2.2kg for a 115mm width. The Whitewalker solves all of that, plus it offers something I didn't know I needed, the Pin tip (and tail). I would have never imagined how such a small tweak to the shape could have such a noticeable impact on how the ski behaves. But the Pin tip really allows the ski to submerge in deeper snow and cut right through it, especially when the snow is wet (the JJ is more likely to get stuck in my experience). When I originally saw the tip, I was a bit disappointed as I (falsely) assumed that the flatter tip of the JJ is what helps the ski to float and helps with landings. Needless to say that my concerns where unfounded. and while so far this season I haven't been able to ski it in conditions where I would prefer a damp ski, but from what I can tell so far it is as damp as the regular JJ despite its significantly lower weight, not sure how they have done that. For those interested, over the past 10 years or so, I owned: original JJ, original AG, JJ 2.0, JJ 2.0 UL, Magic J, DPS Wailer, K2 Hellbent, 4frnt Renegade, 4frnt Inthayne, 4frnt Raven. On top I demoed powder skis from Atomic, K2, Volkl, Faction. My home base are the swiss alps, but I extensively skied PNW, AK, Rockies, Himalaya and Japan. The Whitewalker is the one ski for me that I think would perform in the backcountry of all of these places. It ticks all the right boxes, couldn't be happier.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2021-01-19</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2021-01-19" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1088806145"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Markham</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Charging Pow Slayers!</span> <span itemprop="description">Stable, light, surfy, responsive, and able to charge all in one package.

Lately I have found myself using them on powder days at the resort a lot too and I'm pretty happy with them. If I was to change anything about them I would make them a little stiffer but I'm a pretty big guy so they are likely just the right stiffness for most people. I can charge on them and love how easy they make switch pow landings. I like how light they are and It was interesting to see just how well you can "surf/ smear" them on a good powder day. I'm not gentle with them skiing, and have been rough on them hauling them around on the sled as well. So far nothing but a few cosmetic scratches. I mounted them myself and found they have a metal mounting plate in them witch means I won't have to worry about the binding ever ripping out when I eat it. Definitely holding onto this ski and will be buying the 121mm underfoot when that model comes out.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2022-02-11</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2022-02-11" /> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection').style.display = 'none'; } </script> <!--end-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">y_2022, m_7, d_3, h_21</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_bulk, prod_bvrr, vn_bulk_3.0.32</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasreviews, tv_0, tr_6</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_US, sid_RA0250_bv36_, prod, sort_[SortEntry(order=RELEVANCE, direction=DESCENDING)]</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_armada</li> </ul> <!--end-bvseo-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEOSDK_meta" style="display:none !important;"> <li data-bvseo="sdk">bvseo_sdk, p_sdk, 3.2.1</li> <li data-bvseo="sp_mt">CLOUD, getReviews, 19.3ms</li> <li data-bvseo="ct_st">REVIEWS, PRODUCT</li> </ul>
