    Built for “4x4 or chains required” kind of days, the Black Diamond Boundary 115 ski is a rockered pow slayer for the biggest overnight totals of the season. Our widest freeride ski, the Boundary 115 is outfitted with a playful modern shape and fat 115-mm waist with enough turning capacity for tight trees and narrow chokes. The Boundary’s poplar core and pre-preg fiberglass layup make for solid power transmission. The Boundary also features our Sidewall Dampening System, which employs a multi-density sidewall panel just behind the contact point to create an ultra-damp vibration barrier between the ski tip and the binding.
