At Escape Route, we love this time of year. It forces us to put down our paddles, sit down our bikes and think about skiing again for a brief moment (not that we ever stopped). Incase you weren't aware of how Dreamtime came about, here is a brief history before you get to the good stuff - the skis!
The DPS Dreamtime sale was introduced back in 2012 to give the most hardcore DPS fans a chance at pre-ordering the upcoming seasons DPS skis. Now, the Dreamtime sale still allows fans too preorder skis but with a special edition top sheets.

Limited Powderworks Skis
Do you want to be at the cutting edge of ski design? The Powderworks model is just that. This ski is a space where DPS let the creative juices flow to design a ski with such precision, difficulty and with a harder charging feel. It’s where advanced cores, laminates, rockers, and sidecuts are previewed – then built. These creations may one day make it into the standard lineup, but as they stand; they are rare, cutting-edge skis.

New PHANTOM Glide Treatment
- DPS PHANTOM glide treatment - 50% off with a ski purchase
We love simplification, we remember the first batch of PHANTOM glide were we felt like we were baking a cake, adding part a to part b and mixing things around. Now the recipe is as simple as ever requiring the treatment to not be wiped after it is worked into the base and requires half the amount of formula to work.

- DPS/ATK R14 bindings $764 RRP $899
This year, the R10 features the same stomp pad as the R14. This feature gives maximum energy transfer between boot, binding and ski, plus a flatter ramp angle for an alpine binding feel.
*During Dreamtime we are offering free bindings mounts with the purchase of a ski and binding. Just purchase both items and we'll reach out and organize the rest.
Custom DPS Skins
- DPS Pre Trimmed Skins $259
This skin uses the tried and tested Pomoca Climb Pro S-Glide formula, which means 70% mohair and 30% nylon. It also replaces the plastic attachment tail clip with a stronger, more reliable metal tail clip. So no more snapping tail clips on the skin track!
