Our quintessential powder ski, the HOG'SBACK is inspired by one of the Chic-Chocs' finest skiable mountains, Mount Hog's Back, and more specifically its most popular descent, the Grand Couloir.

These skis are straight out of the freeride movement. Rockers in the tips and heels guarantee maximum flotation during big runs, while the standard camber means you won't end up on your back when conditions are less favorable!

    What people say about our skis

    The Hog's back is my favorite ski!
    It offers a nice wide platform to float well in the powder.
    The wide front tips keep the ski out of the crazy snow.

    Great freeride ski!
    Perfect for the mountains of Canada's West Coast.

    It's also very versatile, allowing you to cope with changing conditions.

    An excellent product.
    Made in Quebec. 🙂


    ...I've had racing skis under my feet since I was a kid. That's why I was afraid that powder and touring skis would be soft, flat to ski on groomed runs, and that I'd only enjoy them in a snowstorm. I was afraid of nothing with the Sig Sog Carbon. The Sig Sog Carbon are beasts. They can take short radius turns at high speed just as well as big turns at high speed...

    With this width, some might be reluctant, but I assure you, it's much more maneuverable than it looks (and even rather light, too!).

    After 2 full seasons on this ski (and it's my only ski), I've skied it in every possible condition. Obviously it excels in the terrain it's designed for, powder, but you'll also be able to "Carver" it on groomed terrain with a bit of speed!

    And what's more, it's made in Quebec.
