Your district is the backcountry, and you like to get there under your own power. With the District 112, G3 offers up the ultimate combination of lightweight touring performance and freeride charging capabilities that will help you bring your off-piste descents to a whole new level. A 112mm gives you generous float, and EarlyRise 3 rocker profile gives the ski awesome maneuverability and stability for your skiing pleasure.
At a claimed weight of 8.2 pounds per pair, the G3 is more than a pound lighter per pair than most of the competition's offerings, and therefore saves you a significant amount of energy on the uphill. This weight savings is achieved through the use of a lightweight yet strong paulownia/poplar wood core. Although the District 112 is extremely lightweight for its size, the use of two layers of Titanal aluminum and dual-density vertical sidewalls make the ski exceptionally stable at high speeds and in crud. G3's own EarlyRise 3 rocker profile places a long area of regular camber underfoot for more edge-hold and stability and early rise in the tip and tail for powder float and easy turn initiation. Strap on the G3 District 112 this season and take your backcountry adventures to the next level.

I have been using these the second half of the season here paired up with Dynafit Radicals and Dalbello SHerpa boots. The District is by far one of the most stable and rippable skis I have had the pleasure to slide on. Pow is effortless, go figure with the wider waist and rockered tip. Breaks crust like no body's business and skis everything else in between with ease. The Titanal sheeting in the layup makes for a very snappy response, (i.e. stop paying attention mid turn and they will want to go straight). I am 6'4", 205lbs and am skiing the 188. Good length, very maneuverable in glades or chutes. I just cant say enough good stuff about this ski, certainly worth your money.
Weight is supposedly an issue. FORGET ABOUT IT! They are heavier than some, yes, but what are you expecting for a Titanal reinforced 112 mm waisted snow monster? If you are looking for some feathers, go buy the Black Diamond Carbon Megawatts. But if it you want something you know you can rip as fast as you can, and know it will hang with you and stay beneath your feet...get the Districts!
Just getting into the backcountry touring...
Just getting into the backcountry touring scene and trying to get a setup of my own going. At the resorts I charge with a 190cm Rossi Squad 7. At 5' 11' 180 lbs., would I be crazy considering this ski in a 179 for touring (pops up for killer price here and there)? Thanks for any insight.

These skis are truly amazing. I have used them on hard pack groomers to several feet of pow in Colorado. The slight camber allows easy purchase in variable conditions and icy hard pack while the early rise tip and tail make skiing in deep pow effortless. Love these skis!!
