Backcountry Touring Package #2 features the renowned Madshus Annum backcountry ski, a ski whose design and construction set the trend for today’s wide and soft waxless backcountry skis. With 31mm of sidecut (shovel to waist) and a soft, round flex, the Annum skis like a true telemark ski when pointed downhill. But thanks to the Omnitrak waxless base pattern, once you run out of elevation, you can kick and glide across the flats and rollers and make your way up low angle climbs. Depending on whether you lean more towards the backcountry touring or backcountry turning end of the spectrum, we offer both softshell and hardshell boot options. For the lightest weight and best all around performance, stick with the Rossignol BC X6 75mm softshell boot. If you want to maximize your downhill power when you’re in steep terrain, upgrade to the Fischer BCX 675 75mm boot. Consider upgrading to the Black Diamond Traverse adjustable poles for the versatility to switch from shoulder length when touring to waist length when bushwhacking and making turns. If you also invest in a set of Black Diamond climbing skins for steeper, longer ascents you’ll be dialed and ready for countless backcountry excursions.
- Intended Use: Splitting time between kicking and gliding on packed snow and making hard earned fresh powder turns in steep terrain, such as on hut to hut tours, backyard backcountry yo-yo skiing on your secret slice of the mountainside, and skiing on and off packed snow trails such as logging roads, mountain bike trails, and rolling hills
