K2 Mt. Baker Superlight – Backcountry Skis: Reviews

   Photo: Mark Wiens

Liked last year's Mt. Baker? These are the same, only lighter. By using thinner steel, K2 shaved off almost a pound per ski, which testers noticed on the way up: "I felt like I could run in them," said one. 120/88/108, 6.5 lbs; k2alpineterrain.com

 

Bonus: In all other conditions—especially corn—they were fun, quick-turning, and predictable.

 

Bummer: A bit chattery on the super-firm.
