AtomicBackland NC Ski Boot

You'll thank yourself later.

Your alpine boots may have walk mode, but that doesn't mean you'll enjoy the bootpack. A slightly more intermediate version than the terrain-crushing Backland boot, the Atomic Backland NC Ski Boot makes a bomber first tech boot, blending uphill efficiency and downhill rippability.

Weighing just under three pounds a foot, these kicks let you fly up the skin track, with a wide range of motion in walk mode and Frictionless Pivot to ensure a smooth and consistent climb. The Cross Lace closure provides a secure and easy way to lock your foot in, and the 30mm strap lets you crank these things down when you're ready to careen through some well-deserved spring corn.
