I ski mostly on packed snoshoe/sno mobile trails with my dog. As these trasils are so uneven and often icy or with loose snow I am wondering if the Alpina Discovery with the 3/4 metal edges are right for me. I have a similar size ski now but it's getting worn and they slide side ways on the trail under the conditions mentioned above. Will they track straight with the limited side cut? Most likely won't be doing much if any deep powder skiing with these. Thanks in advance for any input. Clint
Personally I find they still slide quite a bit on packed icy trails (such as ones made by snow mobiles then later trampled by people). If the snow softens a little, you are good. But if it's icy, you will still find some slippage. I hope that helps.
