To create a ski that will charge all day without exhausting its pilot’s energy account, Faction uses its innovative balsa/flax core to keep the weight down, an issue that grows more ponderous with each additional size. (Note that the CT 3.0 can be had in a 204cm, a length not seen in a ski brochure since the last millennium.) Amply rockered fore (10mm elevation declining over 200mm) and aft (5mm of loft receding 150cm from the tail), the CT 3.0 is an every-terrain ski with a particular aptitude for deep snow. Its shallow sidecut (20m @ 182cm) isn’t made to steer very far out of the fall line, inspiring Bob Gleason of Telluride’s Boot Doctors to inscribe, “For a skilled skier, a great charger. Strong carve with a crisp turn release, with good hold and smooth at speed.”
