Have the best backcountry day ever.
Your buddy just called, saying he'd met this super-rad hermit that lives with a wolf in a homemade yurt up in the Beartooths, and telling you to get your ass up there in a hurry. Load up your pack, mob to the trailhead, and strap on the Rossignol BC 125 Positrack?its waxless Positrack technology means you won't waste any time fiddling with skins, and the lightweight Honeycomb Wood/Air core won't slow you down on the skinner. When you meet the Hermit, down the whiskey he offers you, pat his "dog" on the head, and tell him all about how the slight rip rocker, wide sidecut, and low camber profile help you to shred all sorts of different snow.
If he likes you, he might offer to hook you up to his wolf for the most awesome tow up the mountain you've ever experienced. You'll thank the ski gods for the torsionally stiff fiberglass laminate Active Cap construction and full-length metal edges when you're getting pulled by a wild beast, and praise them again on the way down when you're cruising through soft snow thanks to the forgiving outer cap material. When you go past the yurt for the last time, high-five the hermit, toss the wolf a piece of your beef jerky, and cruise home to tell everyone about the best day ever.

BC 125 great in the BC
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I took these skis to the San Juans in soutwest Colorado last week and there was a lot of fresh snow. The skis had excellent grip on the climbs and skins were only needed on the steepest climbs. They performed very well on the descents. I loved them
A great BC ski...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I purchased these skis with the intent to use the waxless positraks for rolling terrain and approaches to steeper terrain, and then to skin up for ascending the steep, and they do not dissappoint! I do longer treks that do require miles of rolling terrain, and traditional climbing skins are slow, compared to a traditional x-c stride.
The skis are light, yet feel good on the descent. I have these paired with a Scarpa T4 boot and Voile Hardwire bindings with climbing wires. I use Black Diamond Ascension skins - this is a great setup for BC touring on varied terrain, with an "all in one" BC ski that will handle most terrain with ease. If you are looking for an alternative to just skinning up, this is a good choice for a lightweight, BC setup.
super xc ski with tele/alpine tendencies
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I am running this ski in Utah with Dynastar Bindings and Scarpa F1s. The result is something that is very lightweight and climbs well, but gives pretty good control on descents. I have taken it to a couple resorts for in-bounds, but in the future will stay with downhill skis for inbounding- control on tight icy terrain is not as good. Still very pleased with what can do in variable conditions in reasonably challenging mixed terrain in the backcountry
