backcountry touring skis

madchus-glittertind_530x110

madshus GLITTERTIND ski

The laminated wood core is highly durable and strong. A good backcountry ski offering all-round performance.

Madshus Eon

madshus eon ski

The Madshus Eon ski is a little wider than the Madshus Voss MGV ski, so it is more comfortable off the groomed trails and has increased turning ability. The extra width over the Madshus Voss MGV makes it the ski for overnight pack-carry touring. Rounding out the versatility of the Madshus Eon is its smooth glide on the groomed trails.

voile_3_pin_cable_telemark_binding_200

voile 3 pin cable 75mm ski bindings

Introduced in 1989, the name is a bit of a misnomer. As with all Voilé tele bindings, there really is no cable in the conventional sense. Instead, a pair of long, rigid, coiled springs with hooks and a locking heel piece complete the necessary toe-to-heel loop. The springs expand ever so slightly with each telemark turn and can be easily adjusted on the heel end. It’s a design that has stood the test of time, and still is very popular with skiers who prefer the comfort and flex of leather and softer-plastic telemark boots.

Available in-store.
