Ski Backcountry - Backcountry Skis
When you are looking to ski backcountry these metal edged backcountry skis may just be what you are looking for. These skis are beefier than their touring ski cousin and are designed for non-groomed conditions. All these skis are considered lightweight backcountry skis. They have a waxless kick zone so no skins needed. These skis can be used with a regular backcountry ski binding or a full 3-pin binding. The Rossignol BC 65 is 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. The Rossignol BC 70 and Fischer Silent Spider are wider skis that do fit in a groomed track, but barely. These skis have better turning ability than the BC 65. The widest of the skis are the Rossignol BC 90 and the Fischer Outback 68. 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 Fischer Outback 68 are wide, yet do fit in a track. This BC ski will give you confidence in your turning ability yet are a lightweight ski that can easily get you into the backcountry.
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 for you as well as appropriate size ski. Whatever you choose you will enjoy getting away from it all on these BC skis.
