The 2010-11 K2 BackUp is the ideal spring-ski mountaineering tool, that’s equally happy as a resort telemark ski. Two sheets of metal with an ultra-lightweight wood core provide exceptional edge-hold and a damp, supple feel not found in skis this light. Its 82 mm waist is narrow enough to excel whether descending frozen corn or skinning in hard, bony conditions, but wide enough to handle variable snow with ease and predictability.
