Madshus Voss MGV Review: The Voss MGV is the ski for those who like to mix up a day on the trails at Lake Mountain, Falls and Dinner Plain, with the occasional foray off the groomed trails. The ski is relatively narrow and straight, so provides great glide and therefore conserves energy. A hlaf metal egde gives good grip in icy conditions which makes it a great ski for beginners and seasoned skiers. Read more...

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

Fischer S-bound 78 Review: The S-bound 78 is an off-trail ski touring ski with a straight tail for optimum glide and a wider tip for turn initiation. While excelling off-trail, the streamlined shape of the S-bound 78 also makes it ideally suited for daytrips to Lake Mountain, Mt Stirling and Falls Creek. Read more...

Fischer S-bound 88 Review: The the S-bound 88 is the ski for those who are looking for a touring ski which also provides enough side-cut to have fun on the turns. While not as wide as the Epoch or Annum, the S-bound 88’s narrower profile means that it glides better while touring, saving time and energy. Read more...

Fischer S-bound 88

Madshus Epoch Review: The Epoch is a similar ski to the Eon, except it has wider tip and tail, with a deep side-cut. The sidecut will help with quick turn initiation and importantly helps link turns together. This is the ski for those who approach touring as a means to get out onto the backcountry slopes. Read more...

Madshus Epoch

Madshus Annum Review: The Annum takes the basic shape of the Epoch and beefs it up. Increased width for greater stability in steep terrain and for flotation in soft or cruddy snow. What you have here is a ski built for going downhill with control and purpose. Think of the Annum as a downhill  telemark  ski  with  a  patterned  base. Read more...
