Atomic Backland 85 Ski

Backcountry touring isn't just about skiing down the freshest powder around. Depending on the season, most days can consist of cruddy, icy hardpack. When faced with firm conditions, step into Atomic's Backland 85 Ski and lay turns down steep couloirs, hard-to-reach summits, and downright aesthetic lines with confidence. This Backland boasts an impressive weight barely exceeding five pounds, so your legs won't feel fatigued after a long day of touring.An 85mm waist helps this ski hold an edge on hardpack with ease, but Atomic's All Mountain Rocker profile includes an early rise so you can ride through any wind-drifted pow 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 light, and there's a carbon backbone to save weight and maintain a stiff flex.

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.
