Manufacturer's Description

The CBC is Prior’s first true backcountry freestyle twin; it can be found bouncing from pillow to pillow in the Whistler Backcountry or navigating through tight inbound trees. With a waist of 118mm, the CBC provides ample float while staying nimble and playful. Arguably the most versatile powder ski in the line, the CBC features a centered Twin Rocker Profile that tackles variable conditions with ease and maximizes switch ski performance. From deep, off piste pillows to lift lines, the CBC brings playful inspiration to the backcountry.

The CBC is named after a hidden powder tree area on Blackcomb mountain.

XCK Carbon Construction is available as an upgrade on the CBC and saves an average of 500 grams (1lb 1oz) off regular quad glass Ski construction. It also adds more pop to the ski.

Profile: Hybrid Rocker

Best for: Newschool tricks in natural terrain.

Rider Type: Creative freeskiers looking for a playful pow ski
