A Better Ski
This may be my favorite ski to recommend for the one-ski-quiver for skiers out west. I know that most anyone who gets on it will feel super comfortable and have a smile from ear to ear each time he/she rides it. Full review here
Several testers agreed that the Origin 106 is a “great quiver of one for Western skiers.” With versatile all-mountain dimensions, a solid rocker profile, carbon stringers, and ABS sidewalls, the 106 is “really balanced and fun, with enough chops to push into the unknown,” said a CB- based tester.

Like a brick house—they mighty, mighty let it all hang out. Crazy light for the performance they deliver. This is a one-wolf pack you want to run; amaze-balls stable for the ample tip and tail rise. Like Ricky Bobby, they were born to go fast. Full review here
You’ll be aptly liberated with a pair of Liberty Origin 106’s under your feet. This ski earned praise for its playfulness, pop and float— making it ideal for the shredder who loves to jump off of damn near everything in sight.

The new ski performs better in every regard on firm snow, and I still think it’s one of the surfier / looser ~105mm-wide skis out there. So kudos to Liberty for managing to preserve much of what made the original Origin 106 stand out, while making it perform notably better where the old ski fell short.
Every tour, I look forward to the turns to come as I strap on the skins. I feel at one with Liberty’s Origin 106 Ski and know what it’s going to do almost before I ask. I highly recommend them to anyone searching for that quiver of one.
