Though AT skiers may have neckbeards, Volkl reasoned they should still benefit from modern technology and now offers them a revamped Backcountry Touring line. All models feature lightweight, ascent-friendly wood-cores. At 88mm in the waist, the Nanuq is the group’s renaissance model, just wide enough to bust crud and float pow, but narrow and light enough for long, multi-day tours. This model features a greener ECO layup, which avoids harmful chemicals during the production process.
