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... Pow7's Top Picks Black Crows Camox Freebird. Why we love it: The 2019 Camox Freebird is stiffer and lighter than previous models, and ... Continue Reading

2020 DPS Zelda 106 Tour1 Description:

By all accounts, DPS makes some of the best big mountain skis in the world. So when they tell you that the new, women-specific, Zelda 106 is perhaps the most versatile of the bunch, it's worth hearing them out. It floats better in untracked snow than the skinnier Nina 99, and is quicker edge-to-edge on variable surfaces than the wider Yvette 112. The Zelda has the same PaddleTech shape that makes those skis so smooth and precise (featuring a tapered sidecut blended with the perfect amount of rockerity) and shares their sturdy backbone for when the snow takes a turn for the firm. Navigating bumps and tight trees at the speed of thought, then effortlessly surfing in powder, the Zelda 106 is a do-everything companion for skiers who, well, do everything.

The Tour1 construction is DPS's lightest build, precision engineered for world-beating backcountry performance. A blasa wood core is reinforced with the same aerospace carbon fiber found in their flagship Pure3 skis to shave as much weight as possible for long, fast ascents without compromising stability and grip on the downhill. Using premium materials and designed for maximum versatility, the Tour1 construction delivers a best-in-class ride for backcountry rippers--or resort skiers who favor an ultralight plank.
