The XCD Guide from Karhu is an excellent blend of telemark performance and lightweight, touring design. The extra-wide tip and slightly narrowed tail float through deep snow and glide in tracks, the progressive sidecut lets you carve with confidence.

At 78mm underfoot, the Karhu XCD Guide sounds skinny for a telemark ski. When you realize it's not a tele ski, but a cross-country tour ski, that perspective changes pretty quickly.
