Fully rockered in the tip and tail with 141mm underfoot, the Liberty Genome Ski plays harder and faster than any of those less girthy sticks. A slight camber underfoot allows the Genome to be surprisingly nimble on the hardpack while the handmade Bamboo Backbone core keeps the weight down. One epic powder day on the Genome and you'll understand why fatties have all the fun.

I bought this ski last year after the Liberty demo truck came to my hill. To be honest, I was intimidated by a ski this big, and was really just interested in the Double Helix. However, after one run on the DH I had to go work for a bit, and when I came back they were checked out. So I decided to give the big guy a try. Halfway down the first run I was trying to figure out whether I had enough money in the bank, or whether these were going to have to go on my credit card. Obviously, these things slay powder like you wouldn't believe, but what really blew me away was how light and quick they are. I have skis that are 35 mm narrower, yet heavier and slower turning. The rocker and side cut really do work miracles, and the bamboo core is light and lively like you wouldn't believe. I'll even ski park on these a little bit if it's only going to be a few runs and I don't feel like switching skis.
