More interested in having one ski for all your touring adventures than packing a whole quiver every time you hit the road' If you are, La Sportiva's GT 2. 0 Alpine Touring Ski is your horse. With a mid fat waist, plenty of traditional camber, and a lightweight design that's as capable of climbing big peaks as crushing variable snow, the GT 2. 0 is a versatile ski mountaineering tool. Camber gives you tons of grip on hard and chundery snow, while the softer tip smooths out rough and deep snow and the flat tail gives you plenty of stability and control when falling would be nothing short of catastrophic. La Sportiva's Fusion ABS sidewalls add a stiffness and durability to the ski, and the Light Karuba paulownia wood core and multiple layers of fiberglass with carbon fiber mean you can push the GT's speed limit without feeling like it'll fold up on you. There are tons of smaller, but still important touches, too, like a fast and durable P Tex 4000 base, 1. 9mm steel edges, and rubber tip and tail reinforcements that provide a damper, smoother ride. La Sportiva also threw a plate under the binding mount zone for bomber retention, and made sure the GT was compatible with its pre cut HiGlide skins. It's not the lightest, fattest, or burliest ski on the market, but the GT will handle everything you point it up and throw it down, making it the perfect ski for all around backcountry use.
