Built with quality days on quality mountains in mind. The Beauty is ready for the best and worst that Mt. Baker, Crested Butte or Squaw Valley can throw at you. Designed by Barrett Christy to absolutely turn up and rip when it gets good, with a floaty, mellow entry pow nose, a mild tail settling taper angle and enough tail to rail in both directions. The Pendleton graphic celebrates the 100 year anniversary of our national parks.

    I’m trying to decide on buying last year’s Beauty or this year’s Beauty. Is there much difference between the two?

  • Gnu

    We made some slight changes to the core and mellowed out the Magne-Traction a bit for the 14/15 season.
    The graphic will be the biggest difference between this one and last year’s.
