DescriptionHonestly, the decision to redesign the Deathwish Tour came from some pretty simple reasoning. Instead of letting people fall in love with the Deathwish then making them choose a different ski for touring, we figured it made more sense to just give them what they want: a lightweight, skin-ready version of the original Deathwish. So we shaved a couple pounds off, tweaked the tip and tail to accept skins, and here we are. As if that wasn’t enough justification, this new version also happens to slot perfectly in between the Wildcat Tour 108 and the Wildcat Tour.
Makes sense to us. Any questions? Call 1-900-MIX-A-LOT.

Triple Camber Twin Rocker
Rocker at the tip and tail, low center camber, and two sections of micro-camber embedded in front of and behind the binding. Rocker and low camber let the ski surf and slash in powder, while the micro-camber sections create focused edge pressure on hardpack for carving.
PAULOWNIA/ASH WOOD COREFull length, knot free, in house laminated wood core gives this ski its unique blend of liveliness and dampening. All wood sourced in the USA.
UHMW SIDEWALLThe strongest and most durable sidewall material on the market ensures you have the best edge hold available while ripping the piste.
LOWFAT LAYUPA combination of custom lighter triaxial fiberglass, carbon fiber and Paulwonia wood makes the uphill easier without sacrificing fun on the way back down.
4001 DURASURF BASEHands down the most durable base on the market. Dont worry about those snow snakes.
2.2 EURO EDGEThere are only handful of edge manufacturers in the world. We go straight to the source in Europe to offer the best edge possible. We do additional heat treating and bonding prep in house to make sure your edge stays sharper, lasts longer and can handle a beating.
Triple Camber Explained
What a super fun backcountry ski. The deathwish tour performs better than any other lightweight ski that I have yet to try. Uphill was a breeze and they are responsive and burly on the downs. The only thing that I didn't like was the rockered tails. I usually dig a ski into the snow on each kick turn and that was hard to do with the early rise. But that is a personal problem and has nothing to do with the quality of the ski. 10/10 would recommend but at this point that is expected from any product by moment.
I didn't believe that I would ever be a fan of a one ski quiver. I had skis for all conditions, both inbounds and out of bounds and enjoyed all of them for different reasons, not favoring one over any other. Enter the Deathwish Tour. One day, while standing in line at Lone Peak, I saw the most beautiful ski I had ever set my eyes upon. I sauntered over to the gentleman wielding these gifts from god and asked if I could feel them. Not only were they sexy, but they also had flex and the ability to float. My life was changed that day. Fast forward to this season. I finally got my hands on my own pair and slapped some ST Rotation 12s on them. Then, without having skied a single day on them, embarked on a 2 week journey to the land of the gnomes: Canada. Ill admit, I was a little worried that I had just shot myself in the foot by only bringing a ski I had never ridden before, but those worries were quickly squashed the second I clipped in. I immediately felt like I was one with the ski and proceeded to harvest every inch of pow that Ullr provide. These bad boys float like nothing else I have ever been on. But how do they do in steep, technical gnar? After extensive testing at Kicking Horse, I can say without a doubt that these skis can hand big drops and tight chutes just as well as pow. The flex on the Deathwish makes it extremely playful as well, allowing you to butter every slice of toast you encounter with ease. And hardpack? Not an issue. They let you grip it and rip it all day long at speeds in excess of Mach 1, without ever losing stability. Oh, and on top of all of this, they are extremely light and basically carry you uphill while touring. Thank you to the folks over at Moment for producing such a phenomenal ski!
I absolutely love touring with this ski. It’s amazing in deep snow and can rip anything. It’s light but extremely durable. Soon my entire quiver will only feature Moment Skis
These skis are pretty phenomenal, I have them mounted with some Dynafit Rotation 12 bindings and Pomoca climb pro s-glide skins. This makes for a pretty amazing freeride touring kit. The unique camber profile of the Deathwish skis grips well on hardpack but still allows the ski to be very playful in the deep. I spend most of my time touring/guiding in the front range of CO and no matter what the mission is I grab these. I have put roughly 15 days of touring on these and don't think I'll ever go back on the Deathwishes. Thanks, Moment crew for making such a rad ski and helping me chose the Deathwish Tours. (I'd love to see a sub-100mm UL touring ski from you guys!)
I've used these skis on everything from groomers to backcountry powder. They rock! I was unsure how I'd like them since they are just a bit longer than my normal skis and not women specific but they're perfect and just too much fun!
