A light, semi-fat, rockered powder ski engineered with touring efficiency in mind, the Black Diamond Convert is solid and surfy in deep snow, while its 105 mm waist lends confidence when conditions turn variable. Whether it’s a quick hit out the resort’s backcountry gates or an objective hours from the trailhead, the Convert will get you there with minimal uphill effort. It's light enough to dominate the skin track and girthy and rockered enough to have ridiculous amounts of fun on the way down.

Amazingly versatile and fun lightweight
I have 50+ days on my (non-carbon '13-'14 version) Converts, all skinning, though not all backcountry, because they do surprisingly well on dawn-patrol groomers too (see pic). Really surprisingly well.
My previous skis were K2 Coombacks. These Converts are damper, a lot stiffer, a more fun shape, and are almost a Read More...
Amazingly versatile and fun lightweightI have 50+ days on my (non-carbon '13-'14 version) Converts, all skinning, though not all backcountry, because they do surprisingly well on dawn-patrol groomers too (see pic). Really surprisingly well.
My previous skis were K2 Coombacks. These Converts are damper, a lot stiffer, a more fun shape, and are almost a full pound lighter. bad ass.
I loved my Coombacks for their float, and their ability to handle any wind-blasted / re-frozen funky bc snow with calm.... but damn do Coombacks SUCK on-piste. Converts do all the BC stuff as well, and are fun enough on-piste too.
If you want one ski to use in all conditions when primarily skinning, this is it.
I use the 180cm with Dynafits and I'm about 170lbs.
