    BD Helio 88 Ski

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Are you an ambitious ski mountaineer or touring maniac? Look no further! The narrow waist and lightweight construction of the 88 makes it an idea choice for sub par backcountry snow conditions. This bad jackson can hold an edge on crud and hardpack while still floating decently in 3-7 inches of fresh snow. You will have no problems roasting your friends on the uphill at 5 pounds 13 ounces for a 178 cm pair. If you have additional questions on this ski please feel free to reach out. I have used black diamond ski products extensively the last 2 years and am more than happy to help you prepare your winter quiver.
