K2 Coomback Skis -
The K2 CoomBack Skis are K2 touring skis named after fallen modern adventure skier Doug Coombs - in tribute to his zest to earn turns, these lightweight backcountry skis strike the perfect balance between weight and performance.
Solid, stable and predictable on the descend, yet light enough for backcountry touring.
All-terrain rocker offers 70% traditional camber and 30% rocker to gives you float and maneuverability.
The elevated, rocker tip provides variable and soft snow performance while camber underfoot delivers power, energy and edge-hold in firmer conditions.
SnoPhobic top-sheets repel snow to keep you light and efficient on the climb.
The running surface along the ski bottom is hydrophobic by design.
Powder-specific tip design makes the tip's widest point its forward contact point, as opposed to 7 cm in front of it like K2's other shaped skis, creating a more stable and predictable powder ski that won't grab in the variable conditions you find in the backcountry.
Progressive sidecut combines two different radii to enhance the versatility of the wider waist, and to guarantee improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.
Flat tails are practical for the backcountry, allowing you to plunge into firm snow, build anchors and better secure your skis.
Pre-cut skin compatible, the K2 CoomBack has its very own set of custom skins (sold separately) so all you have to do is hit the snow.
Holes drilled into the tip and tail act as skin attachment points, and facilitate building a quick, solid rescue sled or the construction of a ski anchor.
Tip and tail holes come with plugs that can be removed with the simple twist of a flat head screwdriver.
Adjustable tail-strap clip interfaces with the tail hole to secure skins to the center of the ski, and sits on the ski top to not inhibit your glide.
Skin clip arc furthers the skin's security with a concave notch on the tail.
Z-clip attachment is quick, simple, lightweight and eliminates the skin fold-over required with typical D rings, reducing weight and getting rid of snow buildup under the fold.
Cap construction is durable and lightweight, enveloping the core and internal material with the top ski layer, and versatile Torsion Box lends ease, forgiveness, responsiveness and energy.
Aspen and fir core is wrapped with triaxial fiberglass braiding to provide torsional rigidity for added control and strength, and to maintain the lively flex patterns of the wood.
These K2 backcountry skis are a true Lake Tahoe favorite, seen all over the Sierra, and they strike a great ballance between powder skis and all-mountain slayers, perfect for anyone who earns their turns and wants to rip down hard.

The steeper and more technical the terrain, the happier the K2 Coomback. After all, it was named after legendary mountaineer and extreme ski pioneer Doug Coombs. His memory lives on in this second graphic in a series of three that portrays Doug's days pioneering the Chugach Mountains. The Coomback is solid and reliable in steep terrain, it powers through choppy conditions at speed, and it floats through the deepest of days. Yup, it does it all, from playing the part of a ski for exploring the unexplored or taking first descents to being a go-to rockered mid-fat ski for lift-assisted laps.

The Coomback is infused with the versatile capabilities of its legendary namesake, like the All-Terrain Rocker tip, which gives this ski a 30/70 rocker-to-camber balance in order to ease edge transition, lift the tip above soft and choppy snow, and aid overall ski maneuverability. The Coomback is lightweight, highly durable, and lively underfoot, because it's constructed with fir, maple, and aspen wood stringers with fiberglass braided (Triaxial Braided) around it to increase torsional strength and a lively flex. If you're bombing it in the backcountry, you need a long-lasting ski; Cap Construction creates a durable and lightweight ski by molding a laminate and top layer over the core of the ski. Snow-repellent SnoPhobic topsheet uses a hydrophobic wax coating that keeps heavy snow from building up on top of your ski while you're skinning or touring. The 102mm waist width helps this ski float on deep days and provides a stable platform for surviving hard landings, and it's not so wide as to sacrifice edge-to-edge maneuverability.

The legendary Doug Coombs lives on in this second-year graphic for the K2 COOMBAck Skis, picturing Doug's pioneering contribution to the evolution of heli skiing in Alaska's Chugach mountains. The 102mm waist strikes a balance between girth for big days and lightness for the uphill slog. Enjoy the All-Terrain Rocker anywhere on the mountain, be it resort or tour. (Last year's graphic depicted Doug's early years in Jackson Hole, and next year's will feature La Grave, France. Be the first on your block to collect all three!)

I've skied many different skis in this category, and I always find myself coming back to my Coombacks. They are a fantastic ski! From groomers, to crud, to powder, this ski handles it all well and gives me the confidence to push myself. I think this ski's width is perfect in all sorts of conditions. It floats well on powder days but still isn't too wide to not carve good turns on crud or hardpack. It is by far my favorite ski and I have skied many different skis. If you are looking for an all mountain ski that excels in the side and backcountry, pick these up. You wont be disappointed!
