The Backcountry ski is was developed as an all mountain everyday ski modified for high performance in the backcountry. Our design goal was to create a ski that would ski powder and variable snow conditions exceptionally well with an emphasis on keeping the ski relatively fat but making sure it was still light weight. The tip rocker is relative to and compliments the modified sidecut. The shape and long rise of the tip makes the ski very maneuverable in powder and funky snow and wants to push to the surface whether skiing or skinning. The tail has a longer low profile upturn (almost a short low rocker with no actual twin), allowing for easy release from turns, yet still able to drive the ski in the snow to be used as an anchor. A couple mm of camber and smaller turn radius make the ski snappy and responsive, all rolling harmoniously to the tip rocker and tail kick. New for this season we have added carbon fiber to the layup, allowing for us to create an even lighter ski, keeping a sold flex but adding more pop!
