The Sidestash inhabits K2’s new Backside collection of frontside/backside boundary-blenders, and like the Coomback (see Powder: Wide), it comes preconfigured to accept K2-brand climbing skins. It’s built for adventure, not liftline posing.  A hybrid construction combines the power of sidewalls underfoot with cap softness fore and aft. It’s quick for a ski its size, and moderate tip rocker gives it buoyancy and forgiveness. “Tip floats well, but you can still power that flat tail,” said Larsen.
