As the narrowest ski in Alpina's Discovery nordic backcountry series, the Discovery 68 Touring Ski blends the smooth-gliding on-trail capabilities of a narrow cross country ski with the off-track adventure capabilities of a backcountry model. With a 60mm width at the waist, the Discovery 68 is narrow enough to perform well on groomed trails while giving you the width necessary to get off the beaten path to explore. Unlike Alpina's other lines, the Discovery series utilizes steel edges, which provide stable security and grip in hard or variable snow conditions. The Discovery 68 features a poplar wood core for fluid and easy flex, which means you won't have to fight the ski to get maximum performance. An embossed waxless base allows the ski to glide freely on flats or downhill sections while still maintaining balanced control and easy forward motion on the uphills. A polyethylene topsheet adds a layer of tough durability for many years of use.


Get out there and discovery the backcountry with the Discovery 68 cross country skis from Alpina. Engineered for the skier who blazes their own path, the Discovery 68 features a body shape to help glide through groomers, but still carve your own path when you want.
