If you want a ski that will stomp switch and have stability to jump into a heavy line, then look to the Faction Royale.
2012 Faction Royale Skis
The Royale is Faction’s premium fat twin offering. It was built with a variety of tasks in mind: backcountry booters, cruiser deep days, big pillows, and lines too. With a relatively stiff flex for this category the Royale is stable at speed but light enough to spin and flip any way you want. With Faction’s BC FS Rocker profile (flat underfoot, tip and tail rocker) and 150/122/140 dimensions this ski is super fun in the pow or crud.
