K2 WayBack

We picked the best alpine-touring setup by polling the experts: Lou Dawson of WildSnow.com and Steve Romeo of TetonAT.com

A mash-up of carbon fiber, aspen, bamboo, and Paulownia wood make this ski lightweight and versatile for the backcountry. A fat tip and an all-terrain rocker shape give the Wayback control and predictability in everything from powder to crud. Plus, K2 built the Wayback with backcountry-only touches like flat tails, concave notches for skin clips, and holes in the tip and tail for rigging a rescue sled.
