day touring skis

Madshus Voss MGV

madshus voss mgv ski

The Madshus 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 half metal edge gives good grip in icy conditions which makes it a great ski for beginners and seasoned skiers.
$449.95    Available in-store.



backcountry touring skis

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.
$549.95    Available in-store.




fischer Traverse 78 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.
$499.95    Available in-store.
SALE $379.95



backcountry & TELEMARK touring skis


madshus GLITTERTIND ski

The Madshus Glittertind is a backcountry ski that likes off-trail powder skiing. Its wider tip breaks trail in ungroomed snow, and its full-length metal edges give you control in icy conditions. The laminated wood core is highly durable and strong. A good backcountry ski offering all-round performance.
$499.95    Available in-store.



Madshus Epoch

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.
$589.95    Available in-store.



Madshus Annum


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.
$599.95    Available in-store.
