Telemark-Backcountry Skis Comparison Video An in-depth explanation and review of our Backcountry Downhill packages.
If you spend your days skiing woods and hilly terrain in mostly fresh snow without heading for the highest mountains, and if touring over packed snow and flat terrain often makes up a good part of your adventures, check out our Backcountry Downhill Package #3 featuring the Fischer S-Bound 112 backcountry skis. With 34mm of sidecut (tip to waist) and a profile of 112/78/95mm, it is built for making turns and is wide enough for excellent floatation when breaking trail or carving up a hill side. But at a relatively narrow 112mm at the shovel, the Fischer S-Bound 112 backcountry skis with Fischerís Sintec base and Offtrack Crown negative waxless pattern offers decent glide on flats for optimum efficiency on long tours. Attach a set of Fischer EZ Skins (sold separately) for greatly improved uphill grip in steep terrain and on long ascents. Binding choices include the workhorse Voile 3-Pin Hardwire binding, a great all rounder with removable cables making it great for a lot of light touring. The Voile Switchback binding is offered as an upgrade if your main priority is downhill power for cranking turns through steep, technical lines. You can't go wrong with the Scott Excursion backcountry boot which has the perfect balance of power for downhill control with a soft forward flex and lightweight construction for touring comfort and efficiency. The Black Diamond Traverse adjustable pole completes the package, so all youíll need to add is the wilderness hut to ski to.
Intended Use: Hut to hut tours, backyard backcountry yo-yo skiing on your secret slice of the mountainside, skiing on and off packed snow trails such as logging roads, mountain bike trails, and rolling hills
Skis: Fischer S-Bound 112 waxless backcountry skis with EZ Skin climbing skin system compatibility (50mm and 65mm EZ Skins sold separately)
*PLEASE NOTE: Due to this package's oversize shipping dimensions, there is a $10 oversize shipping surcharge added to this package.
ORS Cross Country Skis Direct will gladly mount your bindings to your skis free of charge. Please select this option below.
