G3 El Hombre – Backcountry Skis: Reviews

   Photo: Mark Wiens

At 105 millimeters underfoot, this fatty skis through crud like a tank. It was truly at home, however, in thigh-high Rocky Mountain powder, where it floated tips-up even when the knee was down. 136/105/124, 8.6 lbs; genuineguidegear.com

Bonus: It released out of turns with the agility of a much narrower ski.

Bummer: Ugly graphics.
