SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – July 10, 2019 – The product innovators and ski culture leaders at DPS fuel the fire for skiing during the heart of summer with the return of Dreamtime, which begins July 15, 2019. The uniquely designed skis available during the two week-long event are constructed with state-of-the-art materials in limited, serialized volumes. Additionally, Dreamtime is the only time of year when DPS offers discounted prices on its award-winning in-line skis through its key retailers and online at dpsskis.com.
“Since 2012 we have offered a limited amount of special ski creations during the summer window. Dreamtime allows skiers to break the summer heat and act on fantasies provoked by the thought of winter; it’s a direct connection to those who live and breathe the sport,” said Stephan Drake, founder and CEO of DPS Skis. “With snow flying in the Southern Hemisphere, the pull of skiing is strong for those who chase deep powder. If you remain in the Northern Hemisphere, this is a great chance to complete, or expand your quiver in preparation for the coming season.”
Two Powderworks models, which represent the bleeding edge of DPS ski design, will be available during Dreamtime. These offerings include the all-new Powderworks Wailer 100 RP Tour and Powderworks Lotus 138 Tour. Both feature a brand new, lightweight, powerful and damp construction comprised of prepreg carbon laminates that have been mated with a purpose-built aerospace foam core bolstered with wood stringers. With the finest supporting materials that include polyamide textured topsheets, carbon infused World Cup race bases, UHMW sidewalls and Rockwell 48 steel edges, these physically superior creations morph the conception of lightweight skis and deliver maximum uphill efficiency with a truly connected, energetic, pleasurable feel for the descent.

• Powderworks Lotus 138 Tour – 182cm, 192cm (2000 +/- 50g @192cm)
