Backcountry Ski Construction
Custom Backcountry SkisBackcountry skiing has TWO major components when it comes to skis: COMFORT on the way up and FUN on the way down.
Folsom's backcountry ski design of choice is the ENDURRANCE Construction-- meant to get you to the top without working harder than you have to, but built to give you the ride of your life on the way down! We choose our Completo or Trigger II shapes, coupled with a backcountry-specific construction to give you the best of both worlds: light weight and high performance. Light skis are important, and we have designed the perfect ski that utilizes a lightweight wood core to save you the effort on the way up while not compromising on the way down!
On the way UP
ON THE WAY DOWNWhether you are dropping into a 60º couloir, dealing with breakable crust, negociating sastrugi and windpack, or having that dream run of bottomless pow through the trees, you need your skis to perform. That is why we made sure that the ENDURRANCE Construction will not only float effortlessly through deep snow, but will also hold an edge and be up to snuff when conditions are less than ideal. This carefully crafted blend of longitudinal and torsional rigidity coupled with the right blend of wood in the core make this ski the ideal choice for backcountry travel.
