K2 Piste Pipe Tele Ski

Gear

Telemarkers have started dropping into halfpipes. (Really old school meets new school.) Their freeheeled set-ups let them tweak jumps in all sorts of radical ways — like putting their ski tips in their mouths. And the turned up tails on K2’s new Piste Pipe ($439) tele ski, allow for backward landings, too.
