J Says Best For: Groomers / Moguls / Trees / Boot Deep Powder

Waist Width: 99mm

1) Look at the size of your current skis and consider if you like the length or prefer shorter or longer.

2) Remember that 2-3 cm is not going to make a huge difference. Over 5cm will start to make a difference in feel.

The chart below is for general reference based on your height, but you should also consider these other factors. . . 

Choose LONGER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too small
- Want to ski faster & float better
- Are a heavier person so want more stability
- Are an expert, aggressive skier

Choose SHORTER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too long
- Want easier maneuverability & float in powder is less important
- Are a light weight person and want more maneuverability
- Are a beginner, casual skier

The Artwork

Ski The East x J Collab

First off, there are only 450 pair made... and we've got A TON of east coast fans, so heads up, they're gonna sell out fast! If you’re stoke meter is pinging, then snag yours today before the Ice Lightning melts away.

Ski The East was created by 2 ice coast madmen Chris James and Geoff McDonald back in 2005 here in Burlington VT. I first met them while they were pretending to attend college... AKA driving all over the northeast and Canada making ski movies with their friends. They grew their annual films into the undisputed biggest eastern movie tour of the times promoting ice coast skiing madness like no one else could under the name "Meathead Films." Their movies defined and brought pride to the region like never before!

Eventually they realized they had to also make a living, and launched the "Ski The East" brand. Over 15 years later they now design all kinds of badass apparel and accessories, media, and events that promote eastern skiing with the attitude we all share. They give back even more by being a member of 1% for the Planet, producing clothing through Fair Trade Certified factories, and partnering with 2 awesome non-profits with VT roots: High Fives Foundation and Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation. All in the name of keeping the shred alive!

I've created a lot of crazy graphics over the years but this one may be the winner! What do you get when you mix a snow leopard, bulletproof hardpack, 80's video game graphics, thunderbolts, and the Meathead mascot? "ICE LIGHTNING" of course!!! AKA one of the nuttiest graphics, and dopest collabs we've ever created to Keep The Shred Alive with our good friends at Ski The East!!!

Remember there are only 450 pair made... and we've got A TON of east coast fans, so they're gonna sell out fast. If you're born from ice... pull the trigger now!!!

The Masterblaster™

133 - 99 - 118

Re-designed this season to be as powerful as it is playful, equally confident railing groomers as it is blasting through powder and chop

We redesigned our #1 selling all-mountain ski ”The Masterblaster'' this season with a new, wider 99mm waist and slightly increased rocker. The result nails the sweet spot of freeride performance by enhancing soft snow playfulness, while providing firm snow precision and responsiveness for ripping everything on the mountain without compromise. Our proven light titanal-laminate construction enables power and stability where you need it, while keeping swing-weight low and maneuverability high. This new ski has the same rebellious frontside attitude you’ve come to expect from “The Masterblaster,” now with a bigger sweet spot that begs to take the road less traveled!
