The all new Y-Ride replaces the initial and ground-breaking Y-Series model, the Y-Flow. We retained the innovative Y-shape while revising the dimensions to optimize performance. The shovel is slightly narrowed to 128mm and the tail increased to 108mm. The new sidecut increases effective edge length, improving tracking and dampening chatter. Another modification from the Y-Flow is the addition of micro-height ABS sidewalls. This brings both an increase in edge hold and overall performance as well as durability. Carbon layers and a paulownia core keep the surface to weight ratio exceptionally low at just 1200 grams in the 176cm length. All these optimizations give the Y-Ride an even wider range of uses. Available in 4 lengths from 160 to 184cm, the Y-Ride aims to be backcountry skiers go to ski. The Y-Ride is a fantastic all-around ski, confirmed by all our mountain guide and athlete developers. Now you can enjoy the Ride.
You can't ski it if you can't get to it. Hagan used its expertise manufacturing super-light race skis to create an all-mountain ski with unmatched surface area to weight ratio, allowing skiers to get to higher and deeper lines with energy to spare.

Hagan backcountry skis win a ton of awards. Which is especially impressive given we don't submit our skis to many reviews. Here's a sampling: BOOST 99 – Backline Magazine Test Winner (First Place), Backcountry Magazine Editors Choice award.

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.
