This is our original Powder Hound model! This ski features our Trail ski's patented keel design but with a much wider platform and intake scoop for improved floatation and side hilling capabilities.
The Powder Hound 7 has a 7 inch platform which is perfect for medium floatation on mountain powder and but still agile for trail riding, making the Powder Hound 7 the perfect crossover ski.
Our unique Snow Induction process improves cornering & side hilling capability by catching snow at the front of the ski and forcing it through a narrowing channel and up against the reverse angle keel.
The reverse angle keel design holds packed snow between the keel and channel walls to help give the ski its own footprint and prevent darting. A taller keel height means more aggressive handling.
The channel narrows the length of the ski to compress snow against the reverse angle keel. This creates a solid base for the keel to corner against, as well as creating lift when riding in powder.
The rear of all Slydog skis are bent upward approximately three inches to help keep the skis from digging into the snow when pushing or driving your sled in reverse.
I’ve been backcountry snowmobiling for over 10 years now and have tried practically every type of ski you can use. You have the option to have something entirely unique which separates you from everyone else with Slydog’s patented ability to blend any color scheme you want!
