Ski Technology

8 inch Platform

The Powder Hound 8 has a huge 8 inch platform for maximum floatation – the most of any Slydog ski. This wide ski will help keep heavy, 4-cycle sleds riding smoothly on top of deep powder.

Snow Induction

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.

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.

Rider Testimonial

I have been riding the 8” Powder Hound skis for the last two season and I am in love with them! They offer the most floatation while riding in deep powder over any other ski on the market, the location of the mountain bracket on these skis make it effortless to get the sled on edge, and they are the most versatile skis I've owned.
