If you've been waiting for a ski that's ready for literally anything in the backcountry, just like you, then the La Sportiva GT Alpine Touring Ski could quickly become your ticket to total touring and ski mountaineering freedom. With its mid-fat dimensions and a semi-soft tip, the GT is nimble enough to bounce around in boot-to-brow-deep powder. But as you reach higher and further into the backcountry, its stiff tail and ample sidecut comes in handy for secure side-slips into summit couliors and for careful turns down horrifyingly icy glacier routes.
Incite your passion for ski mountaineering and touring on La Sportiva's GT Ski. The lightweight Karuba wood core gives lively pop, plus you can breathe easy since it's FSC environmentally certified & constructed without the use of toxic chemicals. The slightly softer tip and superior control underfoot inspire confidence in soft snow as well as less than ideal conditions. A slightly longer radius makes them ideal on steep terrain when side slipping & jump turns are required.
- Mountain Gear
It is likely the user of the La Sportiva GT mountaineering ski has never been inside a helicopter. Or ride to a backcountry bowl on snowmobile. Likely they have ridden a ski lift, but not using the La Sportiva GT. The GT is all about performance in steep couloirs and knife edge ridges. Any snow, any terrain, and so much vertical that light weight makes a difference on the climb up and the jump turns down.
