The Original is the first ski shape developed by Prior in 2003 and although it’s been refined over the years, stays true to its roots as a versatile all mountain directional twin. With a waist of 95mm and a traditional camber profile, the Original promises edge to edge performance while maintaining stability, rebound and added pop. The Original maximizes versatility and has been a popular ski amongst the local Whistler community when the 20cm rule isn’t in effect, whether in the park or tearing up the groomers.

Profile: Traditional Camber provides excellent edge hold, energy and ac­celeration from turn-to-turn.

Ride: Smooth and stable, the Original is an excellent choice for all-mountain, freeride versatility.

Conditions: All mountain performance: powder, steeps, hardpack, groomers, moguls, natural and manmade features and varied terrain. 

Mounting Recommendations - The Original can be mounted in both a directional and progressive stance. Its recommended boot center is ideal for all-mountain, directional skiers. If you’re looking to achieve a centered stance for switch skiing, the mounting point can be moved forward as far as dead center, giving the skier the same amount of nose as tail.
