Manufacturer's Description

The Vanguard 97 Is an ultra-light backcountry touring ski. Combining Icelantic’s signature, bombproof construction with the ultra-light Ochroma core, the Vanguard 97 excels going both up and down the mountain.  Its 97mm waist combined with a rockered tip and flat tail allows for great floatation in deep snow and solid stability in varied conditions that the backcountry offers.  Overall, when you are in the backcountry, you need to trust your gear 100% and the Vanguard 97 will allow you to do just that!
