Product Info

Normally, this is where we'd tell you how great the Armada x Alpine Initiatives ARV 116 JJ UL Skis are, but you already know that. They're Armada JJs, after all, the gold standard in freestyle pow skiing for the last two decades. No introduction necessary. Instead, we'd like to bring you up to speed with Alpine Initiatives. These guys are the real deal, living and breathing mountain culture every day and working tirelessly to help others do the same. They guide trips, build huts, fund programs, and empower people affecting positive change in alpine communities, all while helping underserved groups get out and experience the raw beauty of the mountains for themselves. Their core mission is to foster authentic mountain experiences and amplify environmental awareness. When you buy these skis 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Alpine Initiatives to do just that. Heck. Yeah.

Product Details

Rocker Type

AR Freestyle RockerRockered tips and tails are combined with positve camber under foot to allow the ski to charge with ease through unpredictable snow and maintain a solid carve when asked to do so. Turn the whole mountain into your playground.


Flex Pattern (1=Soft, 10=Stiff)Tip: 6 | Waist: 4 | Tail: 7


Smear TechA 3D beveled base in the tip and tail creates a unique feel in all snow conditions. Less likely to catch in crud, self centering in deep snow and un-catchable on take offs, Smear Tech lets you float effortlessly whether sliding forwards, backwards, left or right.


Caruba CoreArmada's lightest wood species keeps the overall weight low while retaining the power and dampness you want while skiing.


Laminate MatrixDirectional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity.


AR75 SidewallsSidewalls provide improved edge pressure under the boot, while cap constuction in the tip and tail provides smooth turn initiation and less hookiness - 75% sidewall, 25% cap.


S7 BaseDurable and low maintenance, with a speed additive for quickness.


1.7mm Lightweight EdgeHeat treated, built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability.
