Jeff Curry lays it down on the all new Sick Day 88
You Never Saw This…
We’ve never been a brand that accepts the status quo. It’s in our DNA. Always pressing forward, pursuing the illusive, and creating. And this year is no different. We took the LINE Sick Day Series, one of the more decorated lineups in skiing, and thought: how can we make this more fun?
So we went back to the drawing board, and retooled one of our favorite lines of skis. We realized we needed to make them arc better, make them surfier — all in all, we needed to make them…ahem, more funner.
The 2017-2018 Sick Day Series
Let’s start with the specs: this upcoming year, the skis ring in at four different waist widths: 114, 104, 94, and 88. Each Ski features Magic Finger Filaments — carbon stringers running the length of the skis — that add snap and pop to an already stable chassis. Whether you’re rallying hardpack, or pilfering pillows in hero snow, there is a Sick Day for you.

The 114, equipped with our featherweight Partly Cloudy Core, is meant for those days. You know — those days. The days you dream about. The days where the refills are free, and you froth and chomp at the bit. The days where you time gate drops perfectly, and the whiteroom is perpetual. Yeah, those days.

Stepping down a bit, we are rolling out the Sick Day 104. This all-mountain, soft snow beast features a more gradual rocker line and a tail that will break loose with ease. But don’t think of this as a slouch on hardpack, either. This everyday quiver of one offers the snappy, good times vibe that won’t overbear or clap out after half a season.
The Sick Day 94 is the nimble, crud-busting every day ski that won’t blow it when an unexpected arctic pulse blankets the hills with a fresh coat. With a quick turn radius and ample camber, you’ll be able to arc and let ‘er buck in all conditions.

We round out the Sick Day family with the Sick Day 88. From east coast gladed cuts to high speed groomers, the 88 will be your everyday weapon of choice. Cut the tails, surf the earth, and rail turns on hardpack; whatever your day may have in store, the Sick Day 88 abides.
