It's probably not a bad thing when a ski is named after, and largely influenced by, the skiing of one of the all time great skiers and that's certainly the case with the K2 Coomback 104 Ski. In the world of backcountry skiing, few names evoke as much praise as that of Doug Coombs, so it should come as no surprise that this signature ski is perfectly fit for his style of skiing: big, aggressive lines, often deep in the backcountry. The 104mm waist width will let you float serenely down big powder lines, and the paulownia and maple woods core keeps things light and poppy so you can have fun on the way down as well. In order to give plenty of stability for a lightweight ski, K2 used a Torsion Box system in conjunction with its Hybritech sidewall, so you don't have to worry about blowing out an edge when you're four days into your yurt trip. In order to facilitate use as an anchor or an emergency sled, K2 gave this ski a flat tail that can easily be plunged into the snow as a sort of extra picket.
