Over the years you’ve seen the awards pour in for the ‘Hoji CC', the queen of Eric Hjorleifson’s powder skis, but what if we were to tell you it’s gotten even better? Eric, alongside and the ladies on the 4FRNT Team spent this past season re-engineering the Hoji CC to be an even more refined powder tool! To start, we updated the rocker profile with our signature multi radius design to give it the best balance and blend of powder performance and firm snow versatility. By slightly reducing the curvature of the rocker under foot we increased the effective edge to improve its capabilities in firm snow. Then, we adjusted the tip/tail height to ensure we maintained that surfy powder feel and increased its capabilities in deep snow. Next, we updated the core to Aspen/Maple with carbon fiber for more energy and power than ever before. Equipped with our Contour Core, we shift the stiffest part of the core rearward to better match a women’s path of power, from their hips. This enables you to initiate turns and float to the surface easier than ever before. The re-engineered Hoji CC is a culmination of the perfect balance of lightweight construction with maximum stability to guarantee you can charge harder and shred powder with less effort than ever before!
Now Available with our ground breaking 4-Lock Skin Integration System!

Can a ski be life changing? If yes, than this is the one. The Hoji CC is intuitive, stable, forgiving and solid in any condition. The first day that I skied them, I was going from soft, to slush, to hard-pack with ease. I could really enjoy the stability in the wide arching turns down the steep, as well. They have given me a whole new level of confidence and inspiration. Thank you Hoji!
WEAPON OF CHOICE
This is my first fully rockered ski, and I absolutely love it! In powder this ski is a ton of fun and it likes to get rowdy. I'm impressed with the hard-pack performance as well. This ski can rip groomers and hold a solid edge. It also accelerates out of the turn, making for a fun (and fast!) ride. The Hoji CC has become my weapon of choice in my daily work as a heli-ski guide.
HOJI CC Construction
Ski Construction and Technology
Eliminating deflection, delamination and fractures in the ski tip. These three issues have long plagued the durability of freeride skis due to the abrupt change in snow conditions and tip slap on impact from catching air. The bordering material in a ski tip that joins the core end is most commonly comprised of hard, non-elastic polymers. We began experimentation in our White Room using different grades of Neoprene to withstand the shearing impacts and provide absorption for change in conditions. The result is a dampened feel that calms the ski feel and increases the durability.
We started with clear Aspen and Maple stringers running the length of the ski at min/max tolerance of the binding screw hole pattern. To reduce weight, we eliminated the Maple stringers, making the core 100% clear Aspen and then milling a 4mm x 60cm pocket where the min/max of the binding mount will occur and use clear Maple inserts to support the binding retention without adding all the weight. We rely on carbon stringers to support the tip/tail end of the core where the Maple is no longer present.
A non-elastic alternative to traditional fiberglass. The carbon runs the length of the ski like a stringer, acting as a springboard of flex, superior to what traditional fiberglass is capable of. Carbon Fiber adds an incredible amount of strength with very little added weight.
A complex insert which adjoins the core end and runs out to the tail edge perimeter. Full wrap metal edge skis often stood on their tail end have a tendency to delaminate, due the weak joint bearing the skis weight between metal, rubber and fiberglass. A tail block eliminates the sensitive joint between laminates and edge and allows for non-invasive customization for skin tail clips if so desired.
Semi Cap ABS Sidewall>
Similar to how you construct a sandwich, layers of premium raw material pile high into a 3D cavity that secures the shape outline with an ABS sidewall over edge. The semi cap design provides longevity and durability of the top sheet edge by stepping down from the square edge of the sidewall leaving a smooth 360 degree round-contoured edge perimeter. The exposed sidewall protects the core from moisture while also dampening vibrations.
Our premium ski base, also known in the industry as a “race base” because it integrates carbon to further strengthen its gliding properties. At 1.3mm this fast, freely gliding and tough carbon base is much more durable than other base material and matches perfectly with our 2mm edge material. The sintering process occurs prior to extrusion, where the the carbon and plastic enter into an extruder in pellet form, therefore individually contributing its own dense properties to the final product.
