Manufacturers description
Since its first release three winters ago, the Husume has gathered a legion of supporters ranging from professional guides to adventurous weekend warriors globally. The key to the Husume’s popularity is that its design excels both as a touring/powder ski and a resort freeride ski. A mid fat waist makes it nimble from edge-to-edge when on the groomed, yet skins like a workhorse on ascents in the backcountry and rips powder like a dream.

The Husume is back for 2013 with extensive refinements that have taken it from a great ski to a down right category killer! Increased tip length, more sidecut, refined tail shape and a few mm wider in the waist are only some of the improvements that have testers drooling. Moderate camber with early rise tip and tail add increased fun yet great edge hook up in the powder. For the off piste focussed, all mountain, backcountry ski connoisseur this ski certainly belongs on the “skis to own” bucket list.

Just ask Backcountry Magazine, they have presented the Husume XTC Carbon ski with their coveted Editor’s Choice award for 2013!

The Husume is named after a premier backcountry run accessible behind Blackcomb mountain only a few minutes from our factory.

XTC Carbon Construction is available as an upgrade to all Husume skis and saves an average of 600 grams (1lb 5oz) off our regular quad glass ski construction while adding additional pop to the skis' overall feel.

Profile: Hybrid Rocker Profile provides floatation and predictability in powder of all kinds...and allows it to turn real EASY! 2-4 mm of traditional camber underfoot provides energy from turn-to-turn.

Ride: Strong stable and predictable everywhere, the Husume provides the perfect amount of floatation in powder; stability in chop and crud with good edge hold on piste.

Conditions: All mountain, in bounds, slackcountry, backcountry, deep pow to hard pack the Husume handles it all!

Strenghts:
A good and balanced skid that lifts in loose snow. Not that most of the guides in Canada run on it. Cool and easy!

Weaknesses:
Not the world's best ski slope, but it's not for the piste it's built.

Summary:
Very good! In order to be complete, however, you need something more if you are going to ski alone. All mountain is in the top.
