From pioneering heli-skiing in Valdez, to starting steep skiing camps in Jackson Hole and La Grave to his renegade exploits that led to open boundaries at resorts nation wide, Doug Coombs put adventure skiing on the map and changed how the entire industry views the terrain beyond the ropes.
Like every Coomback ski K2 hassold over the last nine years, they donate a portion of sales to Doug's family.
'ÛÏThe royalty from the Coomback skis, has enabled me to focus on raising David, and has given me the time needed to develop the Doug Coombs Foundation, which provides kids from low-income families the opportunity to ski. Doug's legacy lives inside these children as they discover the joy of skiing and being in the mountains." -Emily Coombs.
The La Grave edition tribute ski is the third model paying homage to the legendary ski career of Doug Coombs. The K2 CoomBack 104 ski has been completely revamped and modernized. This men's ski is not only lighter than previous editions, but the increased tip/tail taper and the additional subtle tail rocker increases its versatility and forgiveness, while the addition of sidewalls improve it's hard snow performance.
