K2 SideSeth Ski - $599.96

It usually starts when you find yourself eyeing the sidecountry gates or staring out over Chamonix's vast mountains (like pro-skier Seth Morrison). Then it progresses to bootpacks up increasingly steep couloirs. Be sure to have the K2 SideSeth beneath your feet or strapped to your pack. Designed to ski more technical big-mountain terrain, this hard-charging plank has a stiffer tail with slightly less rocker for improved hard snow performance. Its slightly raised kick tail also retains versatility and forgiveness in narrow, concave couloirs so you can get nasty without holding back. - $599.96
