The Route 95 Ski is Black Diamond's daily backcountry driver that stays strong for seasons and rides well in most conditions. It shares the same dimensions as Black Diamond's Helio 95 Ski, except BD switched out the carbon for fiberglass laminates to bring the price down and maintain torsional rigidity. Although it checks in at a backcountry-friendly weight of six pounds per pair, the Route still weighs about a pound more than the Helio so it's not quite as light as its carbon counterpart. A mid-fat 95mm waist transitions from firm snow to soft with equal performance. The rockered tip helps you set the skin track when the snow's deep, and it plays with the tail rocker to help you enjoy the deeps on the downhill. BD also added some camber underfoot to hold an edge when you're cruising down firm snow. Black Diamond's flat-top construction employs durable sidewalls that are easy to tune season after season.

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.
