A big mountain charger from K2, the Sidestash is a hardcore freeride tool. With a slight front rocker it floats well in the powder, and combine this with the light tip and tail and it becomes a very maneuverable ski in tight chutes, and on the steeps. These are a smooth ride in any circumstance and seem as happy cutting through crud as they do floating on champagne powder. There’s really very little to fault here, and backcountry enthusiasts, or big moutain chargers could definitely do a lot worse.
