XCD / Telemark

backcountry xcd & TELEMARK touring skis


madshus EPOCH ski

The Madshus Epoch is a similar ski to the Madshus Eon ski, except it has wider tip and tail, with a deep side-cut. The side-cut helps 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.
$639.95    Available in-store.





The Madshus Annum ski takes the basic shape of the Madshus Epoch ski 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 Madshus Annum ski as a downhill telemark  ski with a patterned base.
$649.95    Available in-store.




fischer s bound 98 ski

The Fischer Traverse 78 ski is an all-terrain ski-touring ski that does well both on and off groomed trails. It has the width to float you through deep snow. Its Nordic Rocker Camber is great for breaking fresh trails. Steel edges on this weight-optimised ski makes them grip even in icy conditions. The Fischer Traverse 78 climbs well and can make short turns in tight spots. An ideal ski for touring and exploring.

asnes nosi 76 ski

On the way down, the Nosi 76 offers the feeling of a classic touring ski, solid and stable. On the ascent, however, it feels like you’re shinning up the hill on a pair of rando-race class skis. The Nosi 76 is the perfect ski for those who want to explore the mountains, logging as much altitude as possible during the season: at a mere 1075g underfoot, don’t worry about the height of the approach. A turn radius of 18.2m (172cm) and a slim waist makes the Nosi 76 perfect for turns on solid and hard surfaces. On snowy winter days, the soft tip and the construction of the rocker and taper floats you easily over the fresh new snow. In order to keep the weight low and maintain the skiability, the Nosi 76 has a wood core made of poplar and paulownia, reinforced with carbon and fiberglass. These skis are equipped with Skinlock for the instant attachment of the X-Skin Access skin – a short and lightweight climbing skin, perfect for long approaches and moderate terrain, that fits in the jacket pocket. The Access skin is so light that there’s simply no reason not to take it with you.

Available in-store.




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.
