Technical info:
G3 specialise in the touring segment and have several parallel series. Boundary is the narrowest model in this category. It has a long setback, combined with a lot of taper in the front ski. It is relatively light, but not among the most extreme G3-models as such. The wood core is reinforced with fibreglass. The flex is average, with a soft tip.

On snow:
G3 skis don´t always arouse enthusiasm, but normally they don´t disappoint either. Boundary turns out to be a steady and stable ski that feels bigger than it is. Here you have plenty of stability and safety in a compact package. It floats well in powder, and you can also trust it on crust. It´s not among the most maneuverable, though. In total Boundary 100 is a very good touring ski, a cross between a lightweighter and fat ski.
