Gear Question

I'm looking for advice on cross country...

Posted on

I'm looking for advice on cross country skis, poles, boots, bindings. Primarily interested in best skis for use primarily on ungroomed, flat to slightly undulating terrain, and also ski/pole length. I am 5'11", 170lbs and I'm physically fit. Thanks

If you go to a website to purchase skis, they have charts that you can use to determine the size, length, etc, by your weight and height. You can also read the descriptions to determine what type of ski you are looking for. I live on a lake that freezes over with flat ungroomed surfaces but wanted the ability to explore areas with some slight hills. I opted for the Fischer Silent Spider Skis. They are still in transit so I haven't received them yet so I can't really comment on them. Good luck!
