Your dawn patrol laps are nice, and the occasional weekend yurt trip is better, but you want something more. You want to get waaaay back. Slap on the K2 WayBack Ski and head for mystical and magical powder paradises beyond the reach of most backcountry skiers. This efficient ski is made for long days and loves climbing nearly as much as it loves untracked lines. Thanks to its super-lightweight, skin-track-attackin' wood core --made of aspen, paulownia, and bamboo--the WayBack gets you out into the great white open; it's solid during descents, too. You know that when you are in the backcountry, you have to be prepared for a diverse array of conditions, and the All-Terrain rocker will help with that. It features 30% rocker in the tip for floating pow and breaking trail, as well as 70% traditional camber for maximum edge hold in icy chutes and sketchy skin tracks. Torsion box cap construction means you get a combination of technologies that provides strength and durability with a lightweight, easy-turning feel. Whether it's glacier routes or popping off high summit, the progressive sidecut adds to the predictable turnability. While every week can't be a get-the-heck-outta-Dodge ski week, the WayBack will be your go-to dawn patrol and yurt ski.
What goes up, can have fun going down. And if your idea of up means skinning instead of lifts, the K2 Wayback could mean more fun on the way back down. A superlight wood core with an abundance of carbon fiber makes this adventure ski one of the lightest mid-fats on the market. It excels at long approaches and pays increasingly greater dividends the farther one ventures into the mountains. The All-Terrain shovel rocker, combined with the shallow, progressive sidecut, makes the Wayback ultra-predictable in high-alpine conditions like sastrugi or sun crust. The rocker also makes trail-breaking virtually effortless.

Constantly find yourself way back in the backcountry? Prefer rustic huts to busy resorts? Then K2 has the solution for you in the WayBack Ski. The super light wood core and abundance of strong carbon fiber mean it excels on long approaches. All Terrain tip rocker lifts the tips just enough to make trail-breaking virtually effortless, plus, the progressive sidecut supplies improved turn initiation on the way back down the mountain.
