DAKINE Mission Pro 25L Backpack - Women's
Head into the backcountry for some epic powder-hunting with the Dakine Women's Mission Pro 25L Backpack and keep everything you need for a successful day within reach. A separate compartment for your avalanche safety gear allows you to easily access your shovel and probe in an emergency situation, and generous main compartment offers up plenty of room for extra layers, skins, snacks, and a first aid kit. The pack is hydration-compatible, too, and features an insulated hose sleeve so your water source doesn't freeze.

K2 Talkback 88 Ski - Women's
As the middle child in K2's women's backcountry-specific ski lineup, the Talkback 88 Ski has the versatility to tackle long alpine missions or quick spring laps with equal zeal. Its narrower 88-millimeter waist won't weight you down on the skintrack, and, when paired with the rockered tip and tail, offers up just the right amount of flotation in softer snow. Since every backcountry adventure isn't always powder-filled, underfoot camber gives this ski a reliable edge hold on any firmer snow you may encounter.
K2 shaved some weight of the Talkback 88 this season, yet managed to maintain excellent downhill performance when it comes time to strip skins. A Titanal spine and carbon reinforcement is to thank for this ski's impressive power and stability, while the paulownia wood core is responsible for its efficiently light weight on steep ascents. K2 completed the Talkback with snow-shedding topsheets to ensure that you aren't weighted down by piles of powder as you head back up the skinner for lap four of the day.
Hagan Ski Mountaineering Core ST Ski Boot - Women's
There's no time to dilly dally when you've got multiple peaks on the agenda for the day—good thing you've got your Hagan Ski Mountaineering Women's Core ST Ski boots on your feet to set the pace. These lightweight kicks boast a stiff yet manageable 110 flex and an ultralight Grilamid shell that delivers power and response on spicy descents.
When you're striding across sparkling glaciers or powering through arduous approaches you'll be psyched on the efficient 60-degree range of motion that you get when you flip into walk mode. The Easy Slide Lock mechanism is reliable and quick to lock down when you top out on your third peak of the day and get ready to crush another steep pitch, and the grippy rubber soles feel secure and stable while you're cruising up an icy bootpack or navigating surprise scree fields.
DPS Skis Yvette 112 Tour 1 Ski - Women's
The DPS Women's Yvette 112 Tour 1 Ski is a lightweight fatty designed to help you set the skintrack on a deep powder day, and enjoy the fluffy ride back to the car. Its wide waist keeps you afloat only when you want to, since you also prefer sinking down into snorkel-like depths about half the time on the downhill. You like sinking down on the downhill almost as much as you dislike sinking down on the uphill, which makes the Yvette's rockered, shoveled, and wider tip all the more enjoyable. It keeps your nose above the snow so you can navigate switchbacks a little easier. This Yvette comes with DPS's lightest construction to keep you nimble on you feet, and considering each ski weighs less than three pounds, you might end up one of the lightest skier in the backcountry.
Hi it's andrew from back country skiing. Canada.com we're here at boulder hut adventures you can see the hut behind us here. Just wrapping up a week of fun ski touring and want to talk to you about the tour one waner 112 we've been. Checking out for the weekend for. Most of the season actually the tour one. Is one of three constructions options. Offered by dps you also have a pure. Three which is a stiffer somewhat heavier ski and a hybrid which is has. Some carbon but more traditional construction as well this is new this year I'd have to say the most remarkable thing about the thing about it is its weight the weight for the tour one is. Only one thousand five hundred and. Fifty grams and that's for 184 ski this. Is the 184 ski that we have here let's remarkably light especially with a benefit binding as we have them here just saying a little bit about the dimensions 141 at the tip 112 here and. 126 excuse me 128 here we've also reviewed. The regular construction of the winter. 112 if you'd like to see that review check it out right here so what's. Different about the tour one construction is its it's also a prep reg. Carbon glass fiber laminate construction. Unlike the regular winter 112 there's a. Full cap here you can see here and there's a balsa core and textured. Polymide talk is what the top sheet is. And also like many dps skis they call. This paddle tech which means it's wider. At this point here so we've had a. Variety of conditions here at boulder. Hut over the week and this is a perfect. Ski for good conditions it's outstanding. On the up track because it's remarkably light like way lighter than anything. That i personally have ever skied. But when you get into hard pack. Conditions or gender. You know breakable cross stuff like that it might not be the ski to go with but. In the powder that we've had this week it was awesome and it's a great. All-around ski so again this is the dps. Winner 112 tours one and just saying now. It comes in a 168 a 184 and a 190 cm i. Wouldn't recommend this as a one quiver. Ski its kind of specialty ski because. It's its so lightweight it's not really. You can't really ski it very effectively on the area but it's the perfect tool. For good conditions back country missions. Especially long ones that's it. Andrew from back country skiing canada if you'd like to see more reviews and read trip reports and read the forum's go to. Backcountry skiing canada calm thank you.
Roxa RXW 1.0 Alpine Touring Boot - Women's
Roxa's Women's RXW 1.0 Alpine Touring Boot won't weight you down on long, steep climbs, and won't have you questioning its reliability when it's time to transition and ski your line. Its 98-millimeter last accommodates narrow to medium-width feet for a performance-first fit, and its sub three pound weight and generous 62° range of motion will have you strolling up steep skinners and tackling long approaches with impressive ease.
The RXW 1.0's ski-walk mode is reinforced with carbon, making transitions easy and reducing play on the descent, while the lightweight Grilamid shell offers dependable power transfer to drive your skis down the line you worked so hard to get to. Roxa's foam-based, touring-specific liners place an emphasis on comfort, and can be easily thermo-molded for a customized fit, and the boot's women-specific cuff has a slightly lower height and scalloped shape to better accommodate the shape of your calf.
Roxa R3W 105 T.I. Alpine Touring Boot - Women's
The Women's R3W 105 T.I. Alpine Touring Boot is Roxa's most freeride-oriented ladies boot, designed for ripping chicks with an affinity for hard-earned turns. The flex of 105 is stiff enough to please the aggressive lady shredder, yet still comfortable and forgiving enough to keep your feet happy on the skin track.
The durable Grilamid shell keeps the weight down so you get on top of big objectives with enough gas in the tank to let it rip on the way down, and the Intuition liner is heat moldable so you can dial in the perfect fit. The Gripwalk soles add a little security to icy bootpacks, and with a 45-degree range of motion in walk mode, these boots allow you a comfortable and natural stride the whole way up.
Arc'teryx Procline Lite Boot - Women's
With the ability to climb like a mountaineering boot and navigate technical ski mountaineering descents, the Arc'teryx Women's Procline Lite Boot is a true alpine workhorse that will move up granite-strewn ridges and glacial ice with ease and remain rigid when you're laying turns down a hanging snow field or narrow couloir. It's clear at first glance that the Procline isn't your standard AT boot—its split cuff, uniquely shaped shell, and integrated boot gaiter all indicate that this boot loves to ascend. In fact, the Procline brings a whole new level of uphill performance to the table with 360 degrees of cuff mobility (75 degrees fore and aft and 35 degrees laterally) to deliver an unsurpassed feel while skinning, bootpacking, or climbing sections of vertical rock and ice. And if that wasn't enough, the Procline gets an extra bit of help on the up thanks to a lugged Vibram sole and reinforced toe cap to protect the shell from shrapnel when front pointing.
The construction of the Procline consists of a Grilamid shell more akin to a traditional AT boot to give the boot the solid downhill performance necessary for skiing and a split Grilamid cuff to save weight and enhance climbing mobility. Where the Procline really sets itself apart, though, is with its integrated corder gaiter, which is durable and waterproof to ensure reliable coverage in high alpine environs. Beneath the attached gaiter is a heat-moldable EVA liner with optional lace closure to ensure a precise and comfortable fit. The buckle system of the Procline consists of two aluminum latches and a cam-locking power strap that can be quickly secured without having to deal with traditional hook-and-loop straps during transitions.
When you're touring and you flick this it's amazing the range of motion obviously that you have without undoing. That top class so it's very precise for. Where you want to put your foot but feels really freaked she's good i guess if you can do this if you want and you loosen it rights up when you're throwing to it makes it even easier the side. To side motion business and kind of see. Here it's on an angle makes it better yeah i like that i just. Kind of want to see if snow entry is any. Issue with this it's a mountaineering boot so times are gonna happen when you do get off your skis obviously and start. Postholing up there's something nasty and big i don't know if he'll be full walk mode like this or not but likely so. You can see i mean that keeps a lot of the snow out which is really nice that tall boots all gator and then. There's that cuff area so without doing. Anything to it i just clamp that yep. Clamps i don't think i can feel it but it's in. There it's definitely in there so i. Don't know yeah but other than that i. Mean boots sure does skin nice that's very comfortable and free feeling and. Light and on off-camber type stuff it. Sure allows you to keep a full skin contact if you choose so yeah so far so. Good okay so now it's time for the book. Review inside instead of in the rain so. There it is size 27 and there's our weight pretty. Simple little scale one boot 1.3 6. Kilograms so super light obviously. Especially when you're looking at something that is as strong as skiing boot as it is so that's nice so good weight on the boot now, and we look at the liners you'll see there are two liners that this boot is using this. Is the support liner the support liner. Are they're stronger liner it's nice just. A good flex motion in the back of flexes. Going in the back so you can get lots of easily easy angulation with this boot is. The cuff of the boot certainly allows it, so we don't want the liner to restrict that different densities of foam nice. And stiff through the top and the tongue so lots of support through their nice moldable down through the bottom which is great and then obviously our character being a mountaineering company they're thinking about using liners like this if you have to be drawing your liners you're wearing them alone not in a boot you can see you've got a rubber. Bottom to that boot which is going to. Give you a lot better traction if necessary but just durability as well so. Into the actual boot itself the plastics this is where all the magic is in this boot a few things that i really. Like i love how dry this boot is with this. Zipper that does up from the front of the boot it keeps this entire structure. Quite watertight as you can see that you. Tough and that gator around the top it's going to keep a lot of snow out so when you have that boot opened and you are in tour mode and a lot of other boots you. Collect a lot of snow through here through buckles and into the boot so you have a lot of water entry into this whole boot system that's not the case with this. Which is really nice to see it's in front of the boot as you can see has the rubber rand to it that's a thermoformed. Rand it's not going to pull away from that gives you much better durability. And some add its stickiness if you are. Climbing and using this boot from a mountaineering standpoint to have a hard. Plastic toe that can skate off is not a. Good scenario so having this is going to make a big difference for people its ultimate comfort when they are climbing and not using it with their skis and you. Can see it's a very burly soul the soul that's on there is not one of these super lightweight soles that's going to. Disintegrate in one season of use that's. A full proper vibrational go it's a. Mountaineering sole great to see that. Obviously works with pins it's what it's made for it's the only way it's going to work but from a standpoint of moving in. The mountains it's great to have that security on your feet so all in all i. Have to say that our caraxes nu pro kline. Boot walks as i would expect it to walk. And skis much better so i think it's. Going to be it's its definitely worthy of carrying the arc'teryx name hope you enjoy it.
La Sportiva Super Maximo LS Ski - Women's
There are those that prefer a lightweight skin to the top over all else, including downhill performance, and then there are those that take La Sportiva's Super Maximo LS Ski out for a tour and don't have to choose. Built with SKI TRAB Lightweight Technology, the Super Maximo is both extremely lightweight yet rich with anti-torsional strength. The core is built from 14 different layers in order to reduce vibration, using lightweight wood interlaced with higher-strength wood, then reinforced with a fiberglass box. This process delivers both torsional rigidity and durability to an otherwise lightweight ride.
When it comes to downhill performance, the Super Maximo LS is well adapted to a wide range of snow conditions. It features La Sportiva's progressive Attivo shape, well tuned for adept steering, floatability, and forgiving turn initiation. This innovative shape ensures gradual entry into fresh snow, yet provides plenty of contact on sun-affected crust. Plus, the 94mm waist underfoot is wide enough to handle last night's big dump, yet narrow enough that it deals well with any wind-buffed slopes you might encounter on your way down.
