"Coombs was the consummate adventure skier. He was equally happy ticking off first descents in the Chugach via helicopter as he was skinning to the top of Antarcticas Mt. Vinson. Consequently he needed skis that delivered solid edge hold and stability at speed but were also light enough for touring. To accomplish that K2 retained the powder tip progressive sidecut and buoyant 102 waist that gave the original Coomba superior predictability in erratic conditions. Then we added slight shovel rocker to give it quicker initiation and better versatility. We think Doug would be proud. A percentage of all COOMBAck ski sales will be donated to the Coombs family. K2 will also donate a portion of the proceeds to the American Mountain Guides Associations Chad Vanderham Endowment which is focused on improving guide education and safety."
