Despite being one of the fatter skis in K2's Backside Adventure collection which includes lightweight, tour-friendly constructions and available precut skins the BackDrop was pronounced "carvalicious" by one East Coast tester. Another said, "It arced, straightlined, buttered, whatever..." A few testers thought it had too much energy, but most loved its rebound and willingness to do most of the work. It's a fat, does-it-all backcountry ski that makes resort skiing fun too.
