Cross Country Skis - Touring Skis
When selecting a cross country ski the caliber of ski will differ, from an basic touring ski that is built for durability to a lighter touring ski that will be faster and lightweight. All of our skis cross country for touring have a waxless base underfoot, so no special kick waxes are needed. You will be able use these under virtually all conditions. If you are just looking for a basic cross country ski, then our best value is the Rossignol EVO Glade. This cross country ski will last a long time. This ski is designed to be mauverable. Also consider the Salomon Elite 5 grip - this ski comes with a built in binding. An excellent value in a basic touring ski. As you go up in price the skis become easier to handle, lighter, and thus there is less mass to move under foot, reducing skier fatigue. The Fischer superlight crown is our top touring ski and is for the cross country skier that wants a high end waxless ski that is light and fairly fast. The Salomon Snowscape 7 is equally an excellent ski and is the best value for the price. If you are regularly out on groomed trails, but sometimes on snowmobile trails or no trails at all, then consider the Fischer Jupiter Control.
Cross Country Ski -Ski Sizing
is based mainly upon a skier's weight, rather than height. Weight is used rather than height because it is the weight of the skier pushing down on the kick zone that will allow you to get kick. Also the weight of the skier will allow the ski to move forward smoothly and easily. A ski that is too small for a person will get great kick, but the glide will suffer. Conversely, a ski that is too big for a person will have great glide and be fast on the downhills, but will suffer trying to get up the hills since the kick zone will not be engaged effectively. See our sizing charts to determine the right ski for you. If you are looking to purchase a ski, ski boot, ski pole and ski binding together, then consider our touring ski packages to keep things simple for you.
