Built and tested in a certain white-capped mountain range running through Austria, Hagan and ski mountaineering have shared a quiet affair spanning decades. As the rest of the world woke up and caught onto the pull of backcountry skiing and mountaineering, Hagan and its core of professional mountaineers wondered why it ever took them so long. If longer lift lines and crowds have you seeking out greater challenges beyond resort boundaries, Hagan Ski Mountaineering is well worth your attention. Built to descend powerfully on slopes too good to take it easy on, the Y Boost Ski delivers Hagan lightness and its loving craftsmanship once only reserved for ski mountaineering professionals. Blending lightness, new technology, and a go-after-anything spirit, the Y series is Hagan's most versatile. Within the series, the Boost sits chomping at the bit for the descent. Weighing just a shade over three pounds per ski and shaped with a 97mm waist, the Boost certainly won't slow you down on the skintrack, but unlike many touring skis, it won't throw you under the bus on the descent either. The elliptical tips end in a shovel shape carefully designed to blast through windblown crust, inconsistent chop, and prayer-answering pow. Hagan's Carbon Tip Stabilizer, alongside the durable ABS sidewalls, reduces chatter and unsettling vibrations at speed, giving you a stable platform to take down gun-barrel chutes and wide-open faces. The Y Boost's featherweight paulownia wood core will dance across traverses and snap to attention quickly on the way down, and it's reinforced by a full carbon laminate for reassuring torsional rigidity when you need it.
