Ski Trab Polvere Ski - $539.40

Go ahead, toss that thermos full of hot cocoa in your pack, because on the ultralight and agile Ski Trab Polvere Ski you've already shaved serious weight. At less than seven pounds per pair, this backcountry stick will fly uphill. With its ample sidecut and early-rise tip and tail, hauling butt downhill'''whether on soft or windblown snow'''won't be too shabby, either. An Aero core and cap construction keep the weight down while carbon and fiberglass reinforcements ensure torsional strength and high-speed stability. All that, and you can bring along refreshments. - $539.40
