Manufacturer's Description

Hidden beyond the reach of ski lifts there is endless terrain that remains undiscovered, and trust us, it’s loaded with fun lines and natural transitions. Previously these areas were only accessible to a strange breed of skier known as skinners. The Facelift changes the game for freeskiers, now uphill efficiency meets downhill creativity. This fun and playful mid-fat ski, based on the geometry of the popular Multiplayer, delivers a surfy ride in powder and gob smacking uphill efficiency.

Reducing weight isn’t easy, but by borrowing technologies from its award winning Milligram splitboard, Amplid was able to strip 800 grams from a pair of Multiplayers. Carbon replaces Fiberglass, because of its impressive strength-to-weight ratio. And because Amplid’s engineers relish any opportunity to show off, a special BBP core recipe substitutes comparatively heavy Poplar with lightweight Balsa and Paulownia in areas of low impact. Tanga Technology, a partial, almost weightless, topsheet used in key chipping areas adds durability without weight.

Take your unadulterated vision of skiing to new places with the Facelift.
