Meet The Vanguard - An Ultra-Light Tool For Optimal Backcountry Versatility

An ultra-light backcountry ski for those who prefer not to sacrifice performance going downhill. The Vaguard 97 and Vanguard 107. Check them out!



The Vanguard 97/107 Is an ultra-light backcountry touring ski. Combining Icelantic’s signature, bombproof construction with the ultra-light Ochroma core, the Vanguard excels going both up and down the mountain.  It's 97 or 107mm 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 will allow you to do just that! Handmade in Denver, CO and backed by a 3-Year “No Questions Asked” Warranty.


The 17/18 Vanguard Backcountry Touring skis showcase the iconic snow monkeys of Japan.  We wanted to illustrate the serenity that one looks for when touring in the backcountry.
