As the fattest ski in Icelantic's Pioneer line, the Pioneer 109 Ski is built to be taken to the hill everyday to provide yourself with control and powerful edging at high speeds no matter the condition. On firm snow the camber section underfoot drives power to your edges for reliable edge hold, while the rocker in the tip and tail provides forgiveness and eases turn transition. When you find yourself in chopped up snow or powder the rocker enables you to float and skip, while the short turn radius ensures you can make quick adjustments to avoid surprise rocks and stumps. This control in various conditions is capped off with a versatile 106mm waist that can simultaneously provide great edge to edge feel on firm pack and stability in deep snow. Because you need this ski to perform all over the mountain Icelantic has equipped it with a powerful and stiff sandwich layup. The Poplar Power core provides power, response, and rebound while the triax fiberglass laminates ensure there is enough torsional stability to hold an edge at high speeds. This reliable construction is accentuated by a durable edge and super fast and easy to maintain sintered base that ensure you will enjoy your day on hill. Despite this stiff construction, the Pioneer maintains a weight light enough for skiers to alpine tour with. Even though it isn't an "ultralight" backcountry ski by any means, the Pioneer can suit those who want to explore the backcountry but don't want to compromise downhill performance.

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.
