Here's what other sites are saying:

Built with the lightweight construction of the K2 WayBack skis, the K2 BackDrop Backcountry Skis have chubbier waists to conquer the deepest pow and leave you with energy for a second lap.


The BackDrop from K2 is a lightweight 112 mm underfoot poacher that seeks out deep powder without weighing you down as you're skinning up. Designed with an All-Terrain rocker and a powder tip, you gain more flotation, stability, and predictability while being less likely to hook or grab. The metal-laminate construction delivers a smooth, damp, and stable ride as you destroy chopped-up terrain, while the SnoPhobic topsheet keeps snow from loading up.

You love your fat skis, but all that weight is hard to lug up the skin track. Get the next best thing with the K2 BackDrop Ski. This touring slayer features superlight construction, a fattened 112mm waist, and an increased shovel rocker so you're able to slash mad pow turns in the backcountry without the pain-in-the-arse excess weight of a heavy powder ski. This lightweight, durable ski also works well as a quick-and-nimble resort powder muncher or sidecountry gate crasher.


Of course fat skis rip in pow, but they?re also heavier, and therefore a pain to drag around the backcountry. Enter the BackDrop. We started with the superlight construction of the WayBack, fattened the waist to 112mm, and increased the shovel rocker. So whether you?re looking for a lightweight, mid-winter touring ski or a quicker, more playful resort powder slayer, the BackDrop is a willing accomplice.
