Skintrack recently posted a brief review of the Hagan Ultra 82. I'll update when the full review is posted:
Quoting from Skintrack:
While we are working on a full review of Hagan Ultra 82 skis, we can say that the 15 days during the last spring was more than enough to leave us with good impressions 🙂⠀
Unless you are always skiing knee deep powder then a ski between 80-90mm might be all you need... 😉 also, such size is preferred by many for early season and spring skiing.⠀
It shines in variable conditions, hard pack, crust and wind affected snowpack - basically, any time when conditions get less than ideal.⠀
With a classic camber, somewhat shorter rocker and being stiffer overall, the Ultra 82 won't float in dry powder as well as softer or wider skis, but it will do great if you get used to it.⠀
At 82mm wide and dimensions of 117-82-102 it weighs only 1,080g in 164cm length. We have been skiing them in 176cm length.⠀
The ski is stiff torsionally, has a predictable progressive stiff flex yet also absorbs vibrations quite well. This makes it very stable and provides really good edge grip.⠀
The core material is ultra light Paulownia wood with an overall construction consisting of carbon top and bottom layers, Diamond Edge Cap and Micro ABS Sidewalls.⠀
Overall, it is a well designed and built ski touring and ski mountaineering ski.⠀
Comments will be approved before showing up.
It is important to have the correct gear for an enjoyable hut trip. But don't overpack!
Make sure to wear bright colors, it's good for the soul and gives photos a funky edge!
This list of clothes is designed to give you an idea of clothes it may be a good to have with you. By no means do you need to have the latest brands or the latest gear, but if you need to renew your wardrobe, this guide would be a good start.
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. BOOST 94 – Montagnes Magazine "Very Clear First Place" CORE 89 – World Ski Test "First Place"
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.
