This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

  • Designed by skier, artist and filmmaker Eric Pollard, the Mr. Pollard's Opus skis ride high in the pow and let you turn the backcountry into your own personal terrain park
  • Core consists of light and strong maple wood stringers surrounded by aspen wood to provide power, stability and long-lasting responsiveness
  • Symmetrical flex pattern in the tip and tail allows responsive riding forward or backward
  • Tip and tail rocker floats high in backcountry powder whether skiing forward or switch; relatively low rise planes through powder instead of plowing up and over
  • Geometry of skis incorporates 5 different turn radii to create effortless turn initiation with solid edge hold and responsive exits
  • Early Taper™ places the widest points of the tip and tail closer to the center of the ski, reducing tail drag and hooking in powder
  • You'll notice the grippy feel of these skis on hardpack thanks to the extended length of the edges
  • Thin core and sidewall in the tips reduce weight and make them easier to control
  • P-tex plastic sidewalls isolate vibrations, offering high-end damping characteristics
  • Steel edges seamlessly wrap around the entire tip, delivering superior carving and long-lasting performance
  • Increasing the thickness of a standard base and edge adds significant durability and impact resistance, and it lets you tune your skis many times throughout the season
  • High-quality sintered base retains wax and glides easily over snow
  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
  • Requires bindings with wide brakes

by fromGreat Ski Great in powder and chop. Heavy, but agile and skis lighter than it is.

by fromSurprisingly versatile for a big wide sk About me: 57 Years old, 5'6" 160lbs in good shape, ski around 50 days annually at Alta. I bought the Opus' in 185cms as I already have a pair of the Line SFBs in 178cms, so I was really only looking to use these as dedicated powder skis (complicating matters further, the SFBs are terrific powder skis in their own right). Whereas I demoed the SFBs in both the 178 and 184 lengths (loved them both), I didn't have the opportunity to demo these - but my faith in Line was borne out a week after purchasing them when we lucked out with a great late season powder day, only my second day skiing on them. They proved to be as much fun in the powder as I expected, and although not as versatile away from the powder as the SFBs, they were still great fun to ski on the groomers, with surprisingly good edge hold for such a wide board. As with the SFB, the Opuses ski short for their length. Demoing would be the ideal approach as always. For a shorter, lighter rider such as myself, at this length these are skis that encourage longer turns and reward higher speeds in powder with much great floatation.
