The Black Diamond Route 95 will get you from here to there in and out of bounds says our top all-things-BC tester Steve Leeder.
One of the best all around back country skis we’ve skied on.
“It’s light and playful but it skis like a solid strong resort ski”
It’s easy to say a ski works great in powder cause well they all do, but for the size of the ski it floats really well. It compares to a much longer ski, this means that you can stay on the shorter size to keep it playful in the trees.
Where I was impressed was how it handled the cruddy and tracked up snow. Skiing rutted out slush and staying on a rail was surprisingly easy.
As a tele or an AT ski the ROUTE 95 fits the bill for a one quiver for sure.
Just fine for getting sendy on too ..
If you like wider check the Route 105 too.
