Backcountry Skiing in the North Cascades

Larry Goldie from North Cascades Mountain Guides and I just spent a day out touring on the new Voile Charger (134-110-123) and Dynafit Stoke (129-105-119) skis. Both skis are light, touring minded boards with rockered tips.

The snow was excellent with north aspects holding the goods. The skis lived up to their names proving that fat, rockered skis don’t have to weigh in at 10+ pounds. Both boards are silky smooth and encourage big radius turns with speed.

We have a number of days ahead to get on the skis as we are headed into the North Cascade Heli Yurt. More details on the trip next week.
