Over the river and through the woods.
There's no need for climbing skins if you're doing a lot of up-and-down touring on rolling hills and you're on the Voile Objective BC Ski. The Voile Traction Pattern Base uses little fish scales so you don't have to bother with skins on low-angle approaches. When the going gets steeper, the bases accept skins like any other ski.
This skimo-inspired board shines on the ascent and is ready to dig its edges into boilerplate ice and tight couloirs just like its fraternal twin, the Voile Objective. And while both skis are remarkably light on the up and maneuverable on the down, you'll notice the soft zipping sound of the Objective BC's fish scales as you succumb to gravity's pull down the fall line. Some ultralight backcountry travelers say the sound is actually the tiny muted screams from the souls of skiers stuck touring on heavy skis and plate bindings, but we'll let you decide.
