Why lug up an extra couple pounds on each foot just to ride a ski that's going to be entirely comparable to the extremely lightweight K2 Women's Talkback 88 Ski' Built with light weight in mind, this 88mm waisted ski will let you quickly ascend the track and still ski like a champ on the way down. The all terrain rocker is designed with the backcountry enthusiast in mind. The flat tail allows this ski to be plunged into the snow to be used as an anchor for belaying. Though not wide by modern ski standards, the powder inspired tip taper lets you float and surf your way through deep snow, or crash through mank just as easily. The Hybritech sidewall construction ensures that this ski can handle the abuse you're sure to throw at it throughout the season.
