Doug Coombs cut his teeth skiing steep chutes at Bridger Bowl before moving on to Jackson Hole to hone his skills. The K2 COOMBAck skis celebrate his life and the terrain he loved to explore.

  • Balanced flex pattern and generous 102mm waists create excellent flotation and easy handling on steep slopes and difficult snow conditions
  • All-terrain rocker features elevated tips that float through powder snow with ease; traditional camber underfoot ensures good power and edge hold on firm snow
  • Fir/aspen/maple wood cores produce a natural flex, allowing the skis to achieve full contact with the snow throughout the turn
  • Triaxial braiding wraps an interlocking fiberglass weave around the wood cores; results in torsional stiffness, responsive turning and sensitivity
  • Located at the tips and tails, a weave of carbon improves responsiveness and edge grip without adding much weight
  • Cap construction envelops the cores and internal materials with the top layers of the skis, keeping overall weight light and durability high
  • Powder tips place the widest point of the skis farther back than on other K2 skis, making the skis more stable and predictable in variable snow conditions
  • Top sheets feature a hydrophobic material similar to what is used on the bases to prevent snow from sticking and building up while you're skinning
  • Flat tails let you easily plunge your skis into firm snow when building anchors or staking out a tent
  • Holes drilled in the tips and tails facilitate building a rescue sled or constructing a ski anchor
  • Holes come with plugs that can be easily removed with a flat head screwdriver; holes also function as skin attachment points for K2 skins (sold separately)
  • Concave notches in the tails keep skins securely centered on the tail
  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
  • A percentage of all K2 COOMBAck ski sales will be donated to the Coombs family by K2
  • K2 will also donate a portion of the proceeds to the American Mountain Guide Association's fund focused on improving guide education and safety
