The K2 SideStash is a great all mountain/big mountain/side country ski for the skier that will slaying the pow, cruising the trees, and spending some time in the backcountry. At 108mm in the waist, and K2's Powder Specific Tip the SideStash can float in the pow, and bust up the crud. The All Terrain Rocker keeps the tip on top of the deep stuff, and deflects the negative vibrations when the snow gets a little bumpy. A progressive sidecut enables the SideStash to turn with ease in any condition. Tip and Tail Hardware make it easy to attach K2 Pre-Cut Climbing Skins when it is time to earn your turns. Hybritech Sidewalls have a vertical sidewall on the majority of the ski for edge hold on an icy couloir, and the tip and tail have a cap construction for easy maneuverability, and shedding some weight. If you want a ski to slay your private powder stash, and be manageable on the rest of the mountain, the K2 SideStash is the ski for you.
