Description

A ski that will take you anywhere, to the chagrin of hermits and mountain men everywhere.

Ever since your brother moved to the forbidding wilderness of Montana's Beartooth Range, you've heard rumors that he's been raising pet wolves and making tents out of squirrel pelts. He hasn't been home for the holidays in over eight years, but this year, you bought the Rossignol BC 90 Positrack Ski, and plan heading into the mountains to take the Christmas party to him. The BC 90 has a weight-saving Wood-Air so you can afford to load up your pack with presents like a backcountry Santa Claus, and Positrack waxless technology that grips and glides superbly, letting you get up the mountain quickly and run away with equal speed when your misanthropic bro points a rifle at you.

Once you two have sorted out your differences over the whiskey that you hauled up, you can tell him how easy it was to get there, thanks to the BC 90's Activ Cap, which combines flexible RossiCap technology with a multi-directional fiberglass laminate, creating a ski that can float over uneven snow and plow through chunder equally well. And when you mistakenly bring up the "incident," you'll be thankful for the full-length metal edges, wide sidecut, subtle rockered tip, and slightly taller camber profile of the BC 90 that allow you hightail it out of there before he can sic his wolf on you. Maybe he just needs another eight years.

  • Lightweight Wood-Air core

Awesome for winter trails

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Last season I bought some snowshoes and I had such a good time that I decided to get these skis to go for winter walks with. I wanted to move with more ease and efficiency than snowshoes (butI keep them for backup). These skis worked perfectly for my intended use. I have taken these out a couple times to do some trails in the Uinta's. My first day out I went 6 miles no problem. The other reviewer that says the up hill is no good. I don't feel that is quite the case. This was my first time on BC cross-country skis and after getting a little technique down I had no trouble climbing moderate inclines. My technique was making sure my weight was over the right part of the ski (if you're in the back seat the positrack can't grip) I did this by holding my poles out in front of me a bit more to bring my weight forward. Steep sections I had to Herringbone, but so did everyone else I observed. I had a lot of fun using these skis. I would recommend them to anyone. And I would also tell people who enjoy snowshoeing to look into these skis as and addition to their snow travel options even pair them up by skiing the flats and low inclines (it's fun going down especially) and using the snowshoes for steep climbs or deeper snow.
