(95-mm waists and up)

Völkl's Explosiv is the distinguished elder, while Atomic's Big Daddy, with its 107-mm waist, and Fischer's Big Stix 10.6 (106 mm) take the prize for porkiness among the conventional (non twin-tip) constructions. Beware: If you're not heading for heli-land, or at least spending the winter in the Tahoe Basin, don't be too tempted by any of these. They're built strictly for deep-snow environments.
