If you are like 100% of backcountry skiers, when you find yourself on a long approach, all you want to do is get in a good rhythm and grind out the miles. Unfortunately, sometimes there are minor hills and undulations in your way and these muddy up the tour with frequent stops. Recognizing this, Voile has thought out of the box and created the V6 BC Backcountry ski. The V6's start with an aspen wood core and are layered with carbon fiberglass and topped off with cap construction and a burly polyamide topsheet, which gives the ski the toughness (and playfulness-tanks can rip!) of a tank, but with none of the weight. The truly radical innovation on the ski is the fish scales underfoot. They allow for minor hill climbing, which can cut way back on the need for transitions. The V6's are known for their versatility already thanks to Voile's hybrid rocker profile so the fish scaling helps these skis up the ante. Not for everyone, but perfect for those who have long approaches and don't want to be bothered with a million annoying transitions, this is a great all around ski.
