Previously known as the KYE 110, the Uptrack Col is most commonly used by Big Mountain skiers, Patrollers and Mountain Guides. We shaped this model to be his big mountain ski, however once you get a couple laps on it, you realize this may very well become your everyday ski of choice. The tapered and rockered tip accommodates ease of control in powder yet the GS style turn radius provides stability and a trusty no-hook feel for hard charging through the crud.
"Every run I took on the 4FRNT Col, I pointed the first pitch and then I stood on the outside ski with all the pressure I have in my 5-foot-9-inch, 190-pound frame. I was blown away by how well the Col responded, even on a shorter size than I normally ski (a 181, whereas I usually prefer a 188 or 190).
That 4FRNT built this ski as part of its Uptrack series intended for backcountry touring surprised me even more. The Col is quite at home descending big mountain terrain. The 4FRNT Col has a clean, understated graphic and is constructed using semi-cap construction with a poplar and paulownia wood core. The construction lends a damp feel and torsional stiffness for any speed.
The ski has a slight rocker tip with a tapered tail that seemed slightly drawn out, and a traditional camber underfoot. It skied quietly and felt stable at high speeds. I played around with the size of my turns, from big super Gs to quick slalom arcs, and the ski responded to my every whim.
On my last run, I dropped into a mogul field. This ski surprised me again. Despite a 25-meter turn radius and 110-millimeters underfoot, I could rip the bumps. The Col quick edge to edge and had the feel of an old school bump ski. For a versatile ski with a large turning radius that can access diverse terrain inbounds and beyond, look to the 4FRNT Col."
