The Head Collective 105 will reliably carve a stable edge in chalk and icy traverses. Even down a firm lap in the Big Couloir. A wood core and fiberglass sandwich construction builds strength while keeping weight down. Add camber throughout and a subtle tip rocker (note, the tips sometimes flap), the Collective 105 has a shape ideal for driving down the fall line, which is good for places like Big Sky. "This ski charges," says Big Sky Sports ski tech Brit Barnes, who skied the Big Couloir in a shark suit. "I skied just about every condition possible on one run. Steep chutes, chalk, powder, crud, and had one of the best groomer runs of my year on this ski."
