The K2 BackUp skis are equally at home heading up the hill as heading down. Conquer the backcountry with the K2 BackUp skis.

  • Serious backcountry adventures require lots of climbing; K2 BackUp skis are light and nimble for the ascent, yet high performing on frozen corn and fresh pow on the way down
  • Metal laminate construction alternates layers of fiberglass and metal above and below the wood core to provide damp, accurate performance
  • Low-density aspen, paulownia and bamboo woods keep the ski light and maneuverable
  • Cap construction envelops the core and internal materials with the top layer of the ski, keeping overall weight light and durability high
  • Progressive sidecut has different curve shapes along different parts of the ski—more aggressive in the tip, less aggressive in the tail
  • Progressive sidecut results in confident, quick turn initiation in hard snow and easy release in crud and powder
  • Powder tip places the widest point of the ski further back than on other K2 skis, making the ski more stable and predictable in variable snow conditions
  • Adventure-series skis feature flat tails so you can easily plunge your skis into firm snow when building anchors or staking out a tent
  • Holes drilled in the tip and tail 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 attachment points for K2 skins, not included
  • Concave notch in the tail of the ski keeps non-K2-brand skins securely centered on the tail
  • Designed for 40% soft snow and 60% variable snow
