Description

Of course fat skis rip in pow, but they’re also heavier, and therefore a pain to drag around the backcountry. Enter the BackDrop. We started with the superlight construction of the WayBack, fattened the waist to 112mm, and increased the shovel rocker. So whether you’re looking for a lightweight, mid-winter touring ski or a quicker, more playful resort powder slayer, the BackDrop is a willing accomplice.

  • ALL TERRAIN ROCKER

    ROCKER: Easy initiation, versatility, agility
    CAMBER: Control, edge hold, rebound

    All-Terrain Rocker features an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions.

    Simply put, All-Terrain Rocker offers versatility and ease in all snow conditions.
  • POWDER-SPECIFIC TIP DESIGN

    The widest point of a powder tip is 7cm back from the standard contact point. The design adds stability and predictability while skiing and is less likely to hook or grab in light crusts or variable conditions.
  • SNOPHOBIC TOPSHEET

    Snow collecting on a ski can add weight to a climb. Our SnoPhobic tops keep you light with a new snow-repellent topsheet. The running surface along the bottom of a ski is hydrophobic by design, so we've developed a thinner version of the same material to use on the Back model-specific topsheets. Applying wax to the topsheet increases snow shedding performance.
  • CARBON WEB

    Carbon Web pushes the balance between weight and strength gaining downhill performance without adding additional mass. Located in the tail and the forebody of the skim the Carbon Web increases edge grip when you need it most in the backcountry.
  • TIP AND TAIL HOLES

    Holes in the tip and tail are not only the attachments points for K2 skins, but they also fit the functional needs of a backcountry skier including the ability to build a rescue sled or construct various ski anchors. The holes are equipped with removable plugs.
