What Ferreol says about the Pionnier 104

(Translated from French)

“The Pionnier 104, Ferreol’s flagship ski, is the perfect ski for Quebec powder hunters. Playful, energetic and agile, it allows easy turns both in the tight couloirs of the Chic-Chocs and in the open snowfields. It offers one of the shortest radii in its class.

Turn initiations are precise and stable and exits are energetic. With a snap of the fingers it is possible to make the ski surf on the snow. Its mechanical and geometric properties are calculated to allow an optimal off-piste experience, while maintaining good skiability on firmer snow.”
