Description

Off-track wunderkind.

The Alpina Discovery Touring Ski lives for secret glades, tight trees, and off-trail tours. Alpina engineered the Discovery with a shorter length and wider waist than its classic skis for downhill maneuverability. A full-length metal edge adds bite, and the Posi-Grip waxless base offers a reliable kick in all conditions.
  • Shorter length for maneuverability
  • Versatile width narrow enough for the trail, but wide enough for float
  • Posi-Grip no-wax base for glide, grip, and downhill performance
  • Full-length steel edges for grip
  • Scuff-Tuff top skin resists sharp edges for durability
  • Made from renewable resources for sustainability

The Size chart does not list this ski - looking for my girlfriend she is 5'8 and 160 - what length do you advise?

Responded on

The 180cm should be the right size for her.

I'm right on the edge of two weight classifications. Any ideas about whether i should size up or size down? I'm dealing with Montana snow and am leading ski trips on mostly tracked trails, but will occasionally be doing steeper, deeper stuff.

Responded on

I would recommend sizing down. Especially with a metal-edge touring ski, it can be hard to get enough grip from the waxless pattern. You give up a little downhill performance and/or glide for secure uphill grip. Herringboning, when you shouldn't have to, sucks!

If you are going Steeper and Deeper then GO LONGER!
Any BC skier knows that!
This is a great easy turning ski Telemark turns are a Snap!
