The Best Backcountry Ski Gear of 2019

It sounds crazy. Hiking uphill for a few hours to take one run that lasts all of 10 minutes. "Forget that," bystanders say. "I'll stick to the chairlift." We understand the sentiment. But many of us here at Powder7 subscribe to this crazy-talk—and the backcountry skiing lifestyle. Why? There's just something addictive about earning your turns. The peaceful aesthetic of a freshly painted skintrack. The sense of adventure. The full-body tired and satisfaction as you sip a post-tour IPA. There's a lot to like, without even talking about untracked powder. Ready to ski uphill? Time for some gear talk: And the best backcountry skis of 2019 are...

2020 Atomic Backland 95 Description:

Head into the backlands on a ski built for it. Atomic brings back the Backland 95 with a new topsheet but the same meat and potatoes as last year. These are some seriously lightweight backcountry touring skis that know how to handle the influence of gravity. Rather than introduce popsicle-stick backcountry skis, Atomic has taken its time to get the Backlands down to a competitive weight. How come? They never want to compromise skiability. Seriously, have you ever tried to slide down an icy mountain on popsicle sticks? It sucks! Worse, it is zero fun. And skiing is supposed to be fun, whether you roll with dawn-patrol resort skinning, meadow hopping, or couloir conquering - all of which, by the way, the Backland 95 was born to handle. Similar skis: Blizzard Zero G 95, Salomon MTN Explore 95.
