Backcountry Ski Packages- Backcountry Skis
When you are looking to ski backcountry these metal edged backcountry ski packages are just you are looking for. The backcountry packages feature skis are beefier than their touring ski cousin and are designed for off-track snow conditions. All these ski packages are considered backcountry skis that are in the light weight category. They all have a waxless kick zone so no skins needed. The skis can be used with a regular backcountry ski binding or a full 75mm boot and binding. The BC ski packages are divided into three categories Light BC, Mid BC and BC. The differences lie in the width of the ski as well as how beefy the BC boot is.
Light BC Ski Set
The Lightweight BC package has either the Fischer Silent Spider or the Rossignol BC 65 ski, which are the lightest and narrowest of the BC skis we carry. This BC ski can fit into a groomed track and is great for snowmobile trails and non-groomed conditions. May like the BC 65 since it can also be used at the touring center when you just want a more stable ski. We use them a ton when we want to get away from the touring center and want a bit more stable ski when touring on the snowmobile trails. Both the Fischer and Rossignol Light BC packages are sold with a lighter weight BC boot.
Mid BC Ski Set
The Mid-level BC packages by both Rossignol and Fischer have a slightly wider ski. The Rossignol BC 70 and Fischer Outback 68 are wider skis that do fit in a groomed track, but barely. These skis have better turning ability than their narrower cousins.Both the lightweight and mid-level ski package comes with a pole that has a larger basket for off-tracking touring.
Backcountry Ski Set
The Rossignol BC package features the widest of the skis which is the Rossignol BC 90. The BC 90s are for full backcountry conditions - they are wide, and are designed to float over the snow and have great turning ability. The Rossignol BC 90 ski will give you confidence in your turning ability yet are a lightweight ski that can easily get you into the backcountry. This ski package comes with the beefy Rossignol BC X9 boot but can be substituted with the BC X11 75mm or other BC boot upon request. The skier has a choice of ski poles - a great backcountry ski pole that is either adjustable or not adjustable.
Backcountry Skis - Sizing
is based upon the skier's ability and the skier's weight. Since these backcountry skis have a waxless kick zone the skier's weight must match the ski size to ensure that the kickzone is engaged on the uphills. A BC ski that is too big will not provide sufficient kick since the waxless scales will not be engaged with the snow. Conversely a backcountry ski that is too small will have great kick on the uphills, but may be extremely slow on the downhills. See our ski sizing charts to help you select the right ski backcountry type for you. Check out our backcountry ski buyer's guide or call us to help you determine the right ski, boot, binding and pole for you as well as appropriate size ski. Whatever you choose you will enjoy getting away from it all on one of these backcountry ski packages.
