Lightweight, wide and strong, Atomic Backland 98 W is one of the most versatile freeride touring skis in the Backland collection and capable of performing in the widest range of snow conditions and in any terrain. Built specifically for women drawn to the allure of alpine touring and weight optimized for easy ascending, the Ultra Light Woodcore construction and widebody design offers the perfect combination of lightweight touring capabilities and freeride performance. A Carbon Backbone runs the length of the ski like a backbone, providing exceptional agility and solid edge grip on descents. Intuitive and easy to handle, the revolutionary HRZN Tech in the tip allows the ski to bust through even the most challenging snow conditions. For the ultimate touring set up, Atomic also offers pre-fit skins to match.

Great recommendations, super fast response
5 /5
I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.

I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!

Soren provided excellent recommendations tailored to my needs and my budget, I can not recommend him highly enough. Knowledgeable, friendly, professional, no upselling/pressure tactics. Soren is a great choice for both beginner and expert skiers looking for the right equipment.
