As the line blurs between resort and backcountry skiing, K2 is among the leaders. For ’09–’10 it ignored the barriers between tribes, blending tele and alpine models into a Backside collection that includes everything from fat powder skis to light tourers. You can even buy K2 skins. The Coomback is the top floater in the category—thanks to both its width and a new, slightly rockered profile—with a ride that puts a premium on control. “Carver, floater, surfer, all in one,” said Preston.
