Black Diamond Helio 95 Ski

More often than not, the ascent is only half the battle, and when you're met with technically demanding terrain and variable snow conditions after a harrowing climb, you need aggressive downhill performance you can depend on. Devour vertical feet on the ascent and descent with the voracious Helio 95 Ski--the mid-width offering from Black Diamond's new, technically-focused ski mountaineering line. The pre-preg carbon fiber layup provides torsional stiffness and progressive, balanced flex that's forgiving in soft snow, but can still stand up to hard pack. An endlessly versatile 95mm waist width is complemented with a medium turn radius that's just as comfortable in tight couloirs as it is on sprawling, untouched powder fields.The Helio's profile consists of a rockered tip, raised tail, and camber underfoot to give you a sense of levity in soft snow and reliable edge hold on boilerplate steeps. An ultralight engineered balsa flax wood core, titanal mounting plates, and ABS sidewalls keep the ski staggeringly light and strong so you can propel yourself to the most remote objectives with the least amount of drudgery in the skintrack. To simplify transitions and prevent wear and tear on the ski tail, the Helio features an ABS tail protector with integrated tab to secure skin clips.

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.
