Here's what other sites are saying:

It is the time to discover something new! No, this isn't about perfecting your Columbus impersonation, but rather a chance to explore the wilderness like never before. Grab your Alpina Discovery Cross Country Skis and head out into the great snow covered unknown. Alpina creates innovative cross country skis for all to enjoy. PRODUCT FEATURES: Shorter length for maneuverability Versatile width narrow enough for the trail, but wide enough for float Posi-Grip no-wax base for glide, grip, and downhill performance Full-length steel edges for grip Scuff-Tuff top skin resists sharp edges for durability Made from renewable resources for sustainability

Groomed trails and spandex are not your style; neither are ultralight, ultra-skinny, ultra-fragile nordic skis. You're a backcountry explorer, maybe a little bit crazy, but ready for adventure, and the Alpina Discovery 110 Touring Ski is what's going to take you there. With a 66mm waist and a generous sidecut, the 110 is Alpina's widest backcountry nordic ski, and it is about as stable and powerful as a ski that's built for pure downhill. But that's not to say it won't tackle uphills with aplomb, as it has a Sollte SS810 waxless base for easy and free gliding on flats or downhills and balanced control and forward-moving efficiency going up. Alpina gave the Discovery steel edges for stable grip on hard snow, ice, and in variable or unpredictable conditions. A polyurethane core provides smooth flex while maintaining the rigidity and power that your backcountry nordic excursions demand. A polyamide topsheet adds a layer of tough durability.

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.
