Recent Nordic Touring Ski Reviews

Fischer SCS Classic

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Affordable yet fast, these skis are a great option for an experienced skier who doesn't want to blow the bank. They are durable enough to use as an everyday or marathon ski, and the NIS plate system makes installing or switching bindings a cinch. I have two pairs of SCS Classics. The price versus performance equation makes these skis a no-brainer. If you're a highly competitive racer, you'll want to move up a few models to shave a few grams and get a faster base, but these are great for a casual… Full review

Fischer Desire My Style

rated 3.5 of 5 stars These were great for me as a beginner. They are not too expensive, and are of decent quality. I only used them off track in parks, golf courses, and un-plowed streets and sidewalks. They perform well on shallow or well-packed snow, but they sink too much in deep powder. They turn okay when you pick up your feet, but you are not going to get hardly any turn just by leaning. Now that I have discovered the strengths and limitations of these skis, I recently ordered some new metal-edge skis, which… Full review

Fischer Desire My Style

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I use these skis for non-groomed trails and they work pretty well. They stay slick in all temperatures. This is my first pair of cross-country skis. They are a great starter set, especially with the pre-mounted bindings. I took them out of box and was on the trail in less than an hour of their delivery! They are very light snd easy to carry. I purchased the 184 cm. I am 72" so they seem just a bit short for me, but maybe I'm just getting use to Nordic style after skiing alpine my whole life. My… Full review

Atomic Skintec Classic

rated 4 of 5 stars Fast looking skis, great kick, a little grabby sometimes. I received my Skintecs a couple of weeks ago. They are the longer and softer type, and my weight is just above the middle of the ski's weight range. I have been using the thinner mohair inserts. The first thing I noticed is that, to glide I have to weight my heels. Some days the glide has been decent that way. Other days, it hasn't been without some friction. It may be that I have not waxed for every condition I have encountered, but it… Full review

Atomic Sierra

rated 5 of 5 stars A sharp looking good gliding Nordic/backcountry touring ski that can turn! Lightweight very fun ski for backcountry touring adventures. Originally bought these by accident when I confused them with the larger Rainiers. I ended up having to use these when my other skis were not prepped. I was worried they would not work out as God in the tea is we use to get to more backcountry terrain. I was pleasantly surprised to find these not only had great glide similiar to my narrower backcountry skis. In… Full review

Alpina Lite Terrain

rated 3.5 of 5 stars For a lightweight, high mountain setup this bridges the gap between off-track ski touring and AT setups. Great for spring high mountain touring. Alpina ski review: I bought the Alpina Lite Terrain Skis in 2010 for an intended trip on the Sierra Haute Route. This is an ambitious route through the high Sierra with much of it over 11,000 feet, several 13,000' passes, and a long (8 mile) approach hike. Usually AT gear is recommended but I wanted a lighter set up and was willing to sacrifice some downhill… Full review

Rossignol BC 125 Positrack

rated 5 of 5 stars I live in Alaska and bought the BC 125s to get away from the lift lines and crowds. I put Voile Switchback bindings on them and use the Scarpa T4 boot. Awesome setup, I call it the 4 x 4 of cross country skis. I use them mostly on rolling terrain and they work great. Just broke in 2 miles of new trails behind my house and was amazed at how well they floated. Put the binding in ski mode and it locks the toe down; this is great for the downhill sections of trail. I highly recommend the Switchback… Full review

Rossignol Evo Tour NIS

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Rented a pair of these at Stump Sprouts Cross Country center and Inn in Charlemont, Mass., during winter 2010-2011 and enjoyed them a lot. This center has a wooded mix of trails and the owner grooms the trails to connect with the paths of a State Forest, so I used them both in and out of track. They broke trail well and seemed to float well in the powder and were very fast in set track. A little sketchy on icier snow, but many great skis are. Full review

Fischer Men's Country Crown

rated 5 of 5 stars I rented these at REI my first year cross-country skiing and was surprised at how well they handled! I ski a mix of XC ski centers and state parks. I used these at a ski touring center and found them to be pretty decent gliding, and they also did surprisingly well off-track in deeper snow. In-track I found them to be very fast and off-track in deeper powder (8") they floated well due to their flexible tips. They did get a little squirrely on icier sections of walking and snowmobile paths, but overall… Full review
