Telemark-Backcountry Skis Comparison Video An in-depth explanation and review of our Backcountry Downhill packages.
You’ve already got a set of skinny skis and soft boots for packed snow touring on flat and rolling terrain and sure, they’re just great. But now you’re ready for a backcountry ski setup for making laps on a secret tree line or heading into the mountains to rack up as many powder turns as you can. Our Backcountry Downhill Package #1 features the US made Voile Vector BC backcountry/tele ski, with a rocker tip for floating through one fresh powder turn after another and a waxless base for climbing low angle ascents and getting around when you finally run out of vertical. The Vector BC's relatively narrow profile--160cm: 115/92/104mm, 170cm:118/94/107mm, 180cm: 121/96/110--keeps the ski nice and light for nicer climbing and easier handling for tight trees and quick edge-to-edge turns. For binding options, we offer the workhorse Voile 3-Pin Hardwire binding for touring versatility and the Voile Switchback backcountry/tele binding (no pins, cables can’t come off!) for optimum power transfer and the best downhill performance. You can't go wrong with the Scott Excursion backcountry/tele boot, with plenty of power for driving skis downhill and a soft forward flex and lightweight construction for optimum touring comfort and efficiency. Consider investing in a set of Black Diamond Ascension STS climbing skins and you’ve got a backcountry ski package that can get you as deep into the backcountry as you’d like to go.
Backcountry Downhill Package #1 Specifications:
