You don't discriminate between backcountry and resort; you'll ride wherever the powder's freshest, and while you might use different skis depending on how you're ascending, you can always use Atomic's Hawx Ultra Xtd 120 Alpine Touring Boot no matter what side of the rope you're on. This boot basically mimics the same aggressive performance and all-mountain versatility that Atomic's Hawx boots are known for, except this Ultra Xtd model comes with a backcountry-friendly weight and a Free/Lock 2. 0 walk mode to make skinning a lot easier.Resort riders typically avoid ski boots with walk mode because their flex dampens overtime; you don't want this boot's stiff, aggressive flex to turn into a wet noodle by the second season, and neither does Atomic. The Hawx Ultra features an Energy Backbone and a Frictionless Pivot point to keep the flex at 120 so you can cruise the resort one day, the backcountry the next, and repeat all season with the same, dependable stiffness.Atomic kept the Hawx Ultra Xtd at a backcountry-friendly weight--barely exceeding three pounds per boot --by switching out the regular polyurethane shell with a thinner Grilamid material. Inside, the Hawx Ultra Xtd features a heat-moldable Memory Fit liner, which already comes with a pre-shaped heel and ankle to help give you a comfortable, hot-spot free fit.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
