THE COUPLE THAT SHREDS THE BACKCOUNTRY TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER RIGHT?!
If you’re looking to share superlative mountain adventures with your favourite person then you both need the best kit in the business. To help you stay connected this winter we’re giving away two top drawer pairs of skis from ZAG skis – the Chamonix based freeride and backcountry specialists.
Known for technical precision and strong visual identity, ZAG is the brand of choice for mountain connoisseurs looking for a superb ski experience.
The legendary Chamonix-based brand, which only makes all-mountain, freeride and backcountry skis, are handing over the Patrol H-96 and slightly lighter-hued Patrol H-96 Lady to one super-lucky Fall-Line reader this month.
Each pair retails at £549 and is built to ride all over the mountain with ease, comfort and security. On-piste they’ll give you that combo of glide, grip and manoevrability that makes ripping the groomers such a thrill, while off-piste they’ll take you happily into deep powder, chopped-up steeps, moguls and creamy spring snow.
In short, these highly adaptable skis are made for all conditions and all terrain. Heck, they’ve been developed by the ski patrollers of the Mont Blanc Valley and are their weapons of choice – and if they don’t need to tackle all conditions with confidence then we don’t know who does!
And the vital stats? Underfoot, both pairs are – you guessed it – a versatile 96mm underfoot.
The men’s version comes in lengths from 170 to 188cm, has a turn radius of 17.5 to 20m and weighs 3400 to 4000g per pair. The women’s model, from 156 to 170cm, has a radius of 15.5 to 17.5m and weighs from 2800 to 3160g a pair.
Let’s just say there will be one very happy couple (or bro and sis, or mum and son, or dad and daughter, or pair of pals… etc) sliding onto that powder-bound 8.30am chairlift this winter.
