Technical info:
Sickday is made of a reinforced fibreglass semicap construction with sidewall. The tips are thin with fibreglass fillings. Line has created a ski with a lot of taper at both ends. Considering the brand, there is an unusually big width difference between front and back. The tip is steep and the skis have camber, but not very much. Low rocker in the back. The back skis are stiff and the tip is soft. Almost as wide tips as the old powder model Prophet 130, which was one of the very first skis with taper.

On snow:
A typical big mountain ski with large tips. Long and wide with a normal sidecut. Sickday doesn´t encourage a full day of powder jibbing. It is built for float, speed and big skids. Because of the width, they are not as effective on hard snow. We like the predictability, float and speed, but they are not as maneuverable and playful as we had hoped for. The tip angle is too abrupt and there is little rocker. Despite having the largest surface area in the test, Sickday is not our number one powder ski.
