You've probably noticed. Backcountry skiing isn't your pappy's mellow butt-wiggling in gentle glades anymore (though it can be) - people are getting after it and demanding performance that at least resembles their alpine skis. At the same time, skis have to be light enough to carry you up the hill for hours at a time. Enter the G3 SEEKr 100 Skis, a more playful version of the much lauded FINDr series, using the same Paulownia-Poplar-Triaxial Carbon Fiber construction but with less camber and a more pronounced tail rocker. The SEEKr 100 is more fun than a backpack full of monkeys, ideal in tight spots and trees, and still uber light. These are the skis you're SEEKing.
The G3 SEEKr 100 Skis Are Performance skis for the backcountry. Touring backcountry powder puts the fun into the day and with the all-mountain shape of the SEEKr you'll be drawing your own lines. Lightweight and ready for both the uphill and the down.

Sometimes untracked snow is all you have; other times you have to work to find it, and that's where the G3 SEEKr 100 Ski comes in handy. A soft snow dominator, the SEEKr is a solid choice for powder floating, and it's also ridiculously light so you can seek out those soft patches of pow when the backcountry seems completely tracked. At three pounds per ski, the SEEKr certainly won't slow you down as you check the tops of peaks or the farthest reaches of forested terrain. A 100 waist is moderately wide for a backcountry ski, but the slight camber initiates enough edge control to keep you stable if you can't find any soft snow that day. G3 made the SEEKr with a 3D-shaped core that you can see in the photo. A combination of poplar and paulownia woods keeps the ski poppy, light, and fun. There are four layers of carbon to make the ski surprisingly stiff for how little it weighs, and a small amount of aluminum keeps your bindings intact after mounting. G3's PolyUrethane sidewalls add the same durability as resort skis, which is something that most ultralight skis lack.
