Boost Series skis are for downhill-oriented skiers (or days). The Boost 99 is for epic powder days and high-speed, long-radius surfing turns. The Boost 94 is for more variable conditions and will reward technically advanced skiers who like to descend hard and fast. The Boost 99 is more forgiving and better for more relaxed descending. If descending “on point” excites you and doesn’t intimidate you in the least, ski the Boost 94. If you are not always hard charging, ski the Boost 99.
Core Series skis are for skiers who are happy to sacrifice a slight bit of climbing ease for downhill performance - whether that be fast and aggressive descending for advanced downhillers or more forgiving descending for less advanced descenders. Suited for people who will ski a variety of conditions, on and off-piste.
Pure Series skis are the “People's Ski" for beginners and intermediates. They are perfect for those who frequently ski on-piste, whether they have perfected their carving skills or are still working on it. Mostly on-piste? Pure 75. More off-piste? Pure 87. Mix it up? Pure 83.
Ultra Series skis are for skiers with advanced technical descent skills who prioritize ease of climbing and are confident in their abilities to descend a wide variety of challenging conditions. Especially suited for people who rarely ski on-piste.

Most Colorado ski mountains allow it, with resort managers writing rules to regulate it. Some charge a modest fee, some don’t. Some allow it only before and after lift operating hours. Almost always, uphilling is restricted to designated routes. See the rules at each of the Colorado Ski Areas here.
