Performance packages are intended for intermediate to beginner levels, typically for groomed terrain and generally have a stiffer, more specialized flex pattern, and may be wider in the waist.


Sport packages are primarily for groomed runs and intended for more beginner level skiers or snowboarders.

**All packages include downhill skis or snowboard, bindings, boots and poles (ski).
