While our regular testers liked the Vision 108 in the All-Mountain Wide category, our backcountry testers found the slimmed-down version to be more versatile in true backcountry conditions. Featuring three different laminates—aramid, carbon, and fiberglass—these skis hit the damp-yet-snappy sweet-spot without the pure-carbon jitters or the deadening weight of traditional fiberglass constructions. The forgiving tips and tails were appreciated in refrozen chop, and the narrow profile remained quick edge-to-edge.
