I've got nice fat twin tip skis. They rocket down the slope. But slip on these badboys and I've got traction like a tiger with it's claw in the rear end of a antelope. These worked incredibly well for our hike out of the backcountry, every step I took I had confidence that I wouldn't slide back down the slope.
