Atomic Backland 85 Ski - Women's

Backcountry touring isn't just about skiing down the freshest powder around; depending on the season, most days consist of cruddy, icy hardpack. On days like that, strap the Atomic Women's Backland 85 Ski to your boot, and tour far in search of steep couloirs, hard-to-reach summits, and downright aesthetic lines. This Backland boasts an ultralight weight barely exceeding five pounds, so your legs won't feel fatigued after a long day of touring.An 85mm waist helps this ski ride over crud and hardpack with ease, but Atomic's All Mountain Rocker profile includes an early rise so you can ride over any softer snow you happen to come across. The All Mountain Rocker also includes camber underfoot to ensure edge control when you're skiing down icy chutes. Atomic built this ski's core with poppy poplar wood and caruba wood to keep the ski ultralight, and there's a carbon backbone to enhance agility and edge hold without adding much weight.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
