Lite Terrain

rated 3.5 of 5 stars For a lightweight, high mountain setup this bridges the gap between off-track ski touring and AT setups. Great for spring high mountain touring. Alpina ski review: I bought the Alpina Lite Terrain Skis in 2010 for an intended trip on the Sierra Haute Route. This is an ambitious route through the high Sierra with much of it over 11,000 feet, several 13,000' passes, and a long (8 mile) approach hike. Usually AT gear is recommended but I wanted a lighter set up and was willing to sacrifice some downhill… Full review

Woody

rated 5 of 5 stars A decent out your back door, State park type ski for a little deeper snow. I saw these on the Internet as a shop display model, unused but with mounting holes. I enjoyed my Alpina Trackers, so I decided that maybe a backup pair of cheap, wider skis might be worthwhile for larger snow dumps and for when I am in state parks and remote out-the-back-door trips.

Tracker

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought these after renting them several times at Windblown Cross Country center in New Hampshire. This has 60 km of trails and 2,000' of vertical and a lot of backcountry runs.

They are well-made and survived my abuse with no ill effects. Full review

If you have a wider, thicker foot these may be perfect for you. I found them to be too voluminous for my foot and found the Rossignol and Fischer to fit much closer and tighter.   Full review

Lite Terrain

rated 4 of 5 stars Alpina ski review I bought the Alpina Lite Terrain Skis in 2010 for an intended trip on the Sierra Haute Route. This is an ambitious route through the high Sierra with much of it over 11,000 feet and a long (8 mile) approach hike. Usually AT gear is recommended but I wanted a lighter set up and was willing to sacrifice some downhill virtuosity for lightness and climbing ability. We were stormed out in 2010 and went in this year (2011) at the beginning of May. My background: I’m 5’9, 190lbs. Full review
