Enjoying some final turns at the end of a backcountry tour near Boise back in December 2016 after the USSMA races at Brundage. This trip also highlighted the Denali's versatility: excellent in the untracked backcountry powder near Boise (Mores Creek Summit), yet also excellent the prior two days on the resort's cut-up "cake"-like powder and even the firm groomers.

These skins have taken a lot of vertical and a lot of abuse this season. Example in the attached picture: the skin at the top is close to the original color (portion near the tip that doesn't rub against the snow), and the skin below that is after a short training outing (at a ski resort closed for the day, on account of the rain that you can see up above on my car windshield). After another training session in more normal snow, the skin was more or less clean again. I've had to quickly restore the glue...

Very nice to have a ski this versatile with visibility like this in conditions that pretty much definite "variable"!

Being bestowed the hat by the race director (i.e., myself) as the winner of the "fastest 50+ racer in top ten" award.
