Line Mothership 2004 Ski Review
The Mothership is not a ski you want to ski on every day for a season or even for a whole week (unless you are incredibly lucky with the weather). Powder days only, or a minimum of 3-4 inches of fresh stuff.
Size(cm) / Radius(m): 172/21 182/21 192/21
Sidecut: 120/90/110 127/97/117 127/97/117
“The Mothership is the original fat twin responsible since 2000 for abducting jibbers from the park and dropping them into the backcountry. Its special, all-terrain weaponry includes a full-length Titanium Powerband and Birch Macroblock wood core for rock-solid stability, and unsurpassed floatation and handling in the most extreme terrain and conditions. There is no powder too deep, no straight line too steep, no cliff too big and no tree run too vast. The Mothership is the ultimate, go-anywhere, all-terrain explorer SUV of skis.”
A soft flex means the Mothership will lead you through the powder and save your legs from feeling like they are on fire. A huge surface area means you may as well be skiing with a couple of snowboards strapped to your feet. It’s not a bad thing. Not only that but symmetric tip and tail widths paired with the super light weight means you can ski the deepest powder and wonder why you ever used powder traces. With the Mothership being so light it gives you the added benefit of being a little more forgiving, whether its balance when catching an edge, or perfecting their position in the air.
The Mothership could still do with being a little stiffer torsionally if it does not decrease floatation. It is billed as being so to give it that all mountain tick box on spec sheets, but it will still annoy you if you spend too much time out of the bowls, chutes and trees. It has a nice cut but nothing drastic. The Mothership’s are fat so you need to only take it out when there is powder, and actively look for the stuff
Carving on the piste. Yep they do that. Nothing worth saying about it because you are not going to spend a week on the groomers with the Mothership, are you?
A worthy contender to challenge the ‘household name’ which is the Pocket Rocket. The Mothership is flexible and stiff without being overly so and causing drag. With more and more offerings of this type across the board of manufacturers, top visuals and attractive price point means you cannot really fail if you need a powder ski.
