      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

FS: K2 Dawn Patrol skis w/ Voile Hardwire + skins

Recommended Posts

K2 Dawn Patrol women's telemark skis, 160cm length. Dimensions are 125-89-112 mm. Year with the orange hibiscus graphics and bindings inserts. $225 OBO for the package.


Skis: Used very infrequently for backcountry trips (10 days max). No topsheet or base issues whatsoever. Edges are sharp and have never needed a tune. These skis get great reviews for both backcountry and area skiing - very responsive, light, and wider waist for great flotation in powder.


Bindings: Voile Hardwire bindings plus basic risers. Bindings are new, risers are used. Skis have pre-drilled inserts so it's easy to mount bindings - no shop required. No mounting screws included unless you don't plan to use the risers - the ones I have are too short - but you can get new ones at any hardware store for a few dollars.


Skins: Cow pattern Black Diamond GlideLite, trimmed to fit. Used lightly, like the skis. Glue is still tacky; skin savers included.


This is a great setup! PM with email address for photos.


From Backcountry.com:

"K2's Dawn Patrol is a women's-specific ski built for the conditions and terrain you love most--deep, steep powder. The Dawn Patrol's 125 millimeter shovel and 89 millimeter underfoot provides superior float in the deepest pow. In fact, the dimensions are the same as those found on the Work Stinx model. However, the K2 women's test team developed the bio-flex core, which creates a damp, quick-turning, agile ski with light swing weight. The core is composed of fir through the body and falcatta, a tropical red wood, in the tip and tail to create the low swing weight--K2 also added a small strip of bamboo through the falcatta in the tip and tail to add strength and rebound. The reason this core is such a big deal is that only K2's women's skis have it! The Dawn Patrol also has binding mounting inserts, to reduce the time it takes to get the skis from the box to the snow."
