Untouched lines--that's where Icelantic's Pioneer 109 Ski thrives best. Sure it'll shred through someone else's line like it was butter, but this all-mountain ski focuses on providing a smooth line whether you're zippering crust, charging crud, or floating through glorious powder. The rocker tip and tail helps you turn in powder without sinking, and the camber underfoot initiates tight turns when you're riding firmer, icier snow.Icelantic built the Pioneer's core out of poppy poplar wood to help you bounce in and out of turns. There are three layers of rubber combined with tri-axial and unilateral fiberglass laminates to add plenty of stiffness for hard-charging. 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 a stiff 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.
