Matt Appleford is the owner of and guide for The Adventure Project, a ski and snowboard travel company. The Adventure Project offers trips to some of the most remote locations in the world including Gulmarg in the Indian Himalayas. Gulmarg receives over 50 feet of snow per year and has one of the highest gondolas in the world.
I get goosebumps just thinking about going to Gulmarg every year.
Kiwi is an alpha dog, prone to dominance, power and attitude. That is the feeling we designed into Grace’s powder ski, made for the “white room” days. The deeper the snow, the more the Kiwi always wants to lead the way. 138mm underfoot with a stiff, rocker rise, this ski is made to go fast in the steep and very deep. Working closely with Alaskan heli powder guides, this ski was specifically designed with input from the people who ski these conditions daily.
