Mount Superior is one of the most iconic backcountry skiing mountains in the western United States, and it's also a short 30 minute drive from Backcountry's office. Given that proximity, it's no surprise that many of us spend mornings on Superior's south face before clocking in, and those quick dawn missions are made possible with light gear like the GlideLite Skin. We made this skin with Black Diamond to assure reliable traction, lightness, and packability. A blend of nylon and mohair easily glides on the snow for optimized efficiency with each stride and also offers a trustworthy grip on steep sections. To make trimming easy, these skins come in pre-cut lengths and a standard 125 millimeter width. Black Diamond's new Snap Fit Tip is also included, easily clamping to the skins without the need for tools, and its STS tail provides up to 10 centimeters of adjustability to securely fit your ski.
