For years, your options for backcountry travel have fallen into two categories: uphill priority and downhill priority. For many of us, sacrificing uphill performance for a solid, hard charging, slash heavy experience on the way down was worth the slog. But then skis like the Armada Declivity hit the market. Utilizing an ultra light core for the way up, two sheets of metal and carbon stringers for the way down, and a healthy dose of nose rocker for pow, and you'll be wondering why you've been wandering in the woods on your oversized pow skis for so long. Take to the skin track with speed and agility without having to tiptoe your way back to the car on the Armada Declivity Skis.
