Alpina Discovery

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

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.


The Alpina Discovery is a great multi-Use backcountry ski designed for ungroomed terrain. Wide body, shorter design with steel edges has great flotation and carving ability. Non-wax Posi-grip base works great in all conditions and has great kick on the up hills.

The Alpina Discovery waxless backcountry Nordic skis bridge the gap between touring skis and telemark skis, letting you set your own tracks in untouched glades and wooded slopes. Available in shorter-than-traditional lengths and featuring a 60mm waist, the Alpina Discovery initiates turns quickly and easily; great for on- or off-track skiing. Wood core with air channels provides the right amount of torsional rigidity without weighing the ski down. Waxless Posi-Grip base features a raised traction pattern, as opposed to a pattern that is cut into the base, that provides exceptional traction for striding uphill. Full metal edges provide the bite you need when descending icy slopes. Scuff-Tuff plastic material is molded on top of the ski to increase durability and keep snow from collecting.
