Why We Like The Backland 85 Alpine Touring Ski

Positioned as one of our favorite backcountry skis for exploring deep in our Wasatch mountains the Backland 85 Ski is perfectly suited for backcountry yurt trips, lengthy couloir missions, and firm snow touring. Atomic utilizes a featherweight caruba core to achieve an ultra-efficient feel on the ascent, while the carbon laminate supplies predictable dampening characteristics on the ascent.
