(All Mountain Chargers Category) In Liberty’s own words, the Variant113 is geared toward “demolishing your resort,” and we couldn’t agree more. This is a badass big mountain gun with a heavy construction and a conservative, no-nonsense rocker profile. When it comes to skiing very fast in chopped-up, cruddy conditions, the Variant113 is best, most damp, most stable ski in this class, and maybe the world. It offers a smoother ride (the DPS Wailer 105), but the Variant113 is considerably wider– it’s the widest ski in its class. The Variant113 is better suited for skiing relatively soft conditions than firm ones, so it doesn’t lead the group when it comes to everyday versatility. However, that’s not at all to say the Variant113 can’t serve as an all-around ski for a powerful skier, especially at a resort with lots of big-open terrain. Blister Gear Review
(Powder Skis Category) When it comes to skiing very fast in chopped up, cruddy conditions, the Variant 113 is the best, most damp, most stable ski in our all-mountain charger class and the same is most definitely true in this more directional powder skis category. Those who prize stability at speed in all conditions will really like the 113 in pow. In deep snow around Taos, we were surprised by how well this ski planed, but we were skiing fast- because this ski likes to. The Variant 113 is not a ski designed to noodle around in low-angle terrain, but if you’re either skiing fast or skiing steep slopes, it’s one of the most stable, confidence-inspiring skis out there.
