Based on the Rocker2 115 of season 2012 / 2013 the Q-line has a Rockered tip and a early rise tail. If you are looking for a powder ski with an all mountain character, then this is the one you will find.

The royal destination Baqueira Beret

Baqueira 6

The best food , authentic towns and a strong regional identity. The Val D’Aran is one of those bucket list destinations for powder enthusiasts. Located on the south side of the Pyrenees and surrounded by some high mountains, this place receives a lot of snow when storms come in from the south west. Travelling here from the end of December - March will guarantee you finding a white snow covered valley.

Fresh Powder visited Zermatt and what a fairytale village this resort is! When talking about a winter wonderland resort then Zermatt fits the picture. Located below the impressive Matterhorn and surrounded by the most mountain tops above 4000 meters in Europe (38) this is a destination you have to have on your bucket list.
