x DPS Nebo Alpine Touring Ski
Backcountry has been a force in the outdoors for 20 years, and our deepest roots as Gearheads lead back to our beginnings in backcountry touring. To honor that heritage, we collaborated with DPS to make the Backcountry x DPS Nebo Alpine Touring Ski. The Nebo is a do-it-all, sub-1500g plank for virtually any snow conditions found in the Wasatch Mountains, our own backyard. We’re comfortable making that far-reaching claim, because the ski was designed with input and feedback from the most experienced Backcountry Gearheads. From the deep powder of Superior’s South Face to the often-icy conditions of the Pfeifferhorn's Northwest Couloir, the Nebo answers every question that our decades of dawn patrols and touring expertise can throw at it.
In order to check off our all-Wasatch wishlist, we started with the Tour 1 construction because it’s the lightest option offered by DPS , and then we asked for alterations to enhance overall stiffness and better stability at higher speeds. DPS obliged us. The key changes include thicker, prepreg carbon laminates and the same vibration damping technology found in the new Alchemist construction. The stiffer, more stable platform makes the difference between chattery rides and smooth, speedy cruises—all in a package that still maintains the Tour 1’s low weight.
Apart from those differences, the Nebo features the same profile as the Wailer 106—namely, a heavily rockered tip that slices through deep stashes of powder, enough camber underfoot to hold an edge down firm chutes, and a slightly rockered tail for playfulness that maneuvers around tight trees . The profile works with the Alchemist’s stiffness and the Tour 1’s sub-1,500g weight to make this ski worthy of longer tours like the biggest mountain in the Wasatch, Nebo itself.
