Recent Nordic Touring Ski Reviews

Madshus Epoch

rated 4 of 5 stars Versatile off-trail xcountry ski. This ski is identical to the Karhu XCD 10th Mountain. This ski is marketed as a hybrid between a telemark and a xcountry ski.  Perhaps the best way to review this ski is by comparing it to its two siblings: the Madshus Eon (Karhu XCD GT) and the Madshus Annum (Karhu XCD Guide). First of all, from my perspective, all of these skis are designed to be first and foremost off-trail, classic kick and glide xcountry skis. Yes, they do have a progressive sidecut; they… Full review

Madshus Eon

rated 5 of 5 stars Versatile and efficient off-trail xcountry. This ski is identical to the Karhu XCD GT. This ski comes in either a waxable base or a waxless base. I currently use the waxless base. These are well designed off-trail xcountry skis. I have skied several hundred kilometers on my current pair, with no problems. Although this ski is marketed as a hybrid between a telemark and a classic xcountry ski, it truly excels as an off-trail classic kick and glide ski. Yes, it does have a progressive sidecut; it… Full review

Madshus Annum

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultimate off-trail xcountry ski: trail breaker/deep snow. I have been an avid nordic skier for over 30 years. My everyday skiing has always been off-trail, backcountry, kick and glide xcountry; on rolling terrain with the occasional steep climb and descent. For most of my years I have always assumed that something as fat as the Annum is really a telemark ski and have reserved them for that use alone (with 75mm telemark bindings). (In recent years I have only needed telemark gear a couple of times… Full review

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
