Description

Freshies 4ever.

When you have a love for something as deep and ardent as yours for pristine pow, the right ski for optimal lovin' is imperative. The hike-ready Volkl Nanuq Ski is lightweight enough for marathon laps but has a mid-fat waist for float and stability. A tip rocker makes turn-entry a breeze and prevents tip dive in deep snow. The Nanuq has a wide-radius sidecut for letting loose when you get to a beautiful wide-open bowl and really want to go nuts. Perhaps the most versatile of the Volkl backcountry skis, it's still quick edge-to-edge thanks to its traditional camber and stiff torsion box. Plus, the proprietary Skin Pin attachment system let you get snap the pre-cut matching skin off in a hurry so you get your pick of lines.

  • Tip rocker profile with traditional camber
  • Power construction and internal torsion box
  • Multi-layer poplar and beech wood Core Light
  • Skin Pin attachment system

Here's what others have to say...

I want this ski in a 167 :p. Since that doesn't exist, should I go for the 163 or the 170? I'm 5'6", 140 lbs., female, upgrading from a much skinnier ski in a 158 and wanting something that will do better in powder. I'm a decent skier but hoping to get better, and more into moderately steep slopes and some tree skiing than anything ridiculously aggressive. Any thoughts? I don't want to end up with the 170s and realize I can't steer them, but I also don't want to "outgrow" another pair of skis like I did my last ones. Thanks in advance!

I'd go with the 170! I'm about the same size and I have a 170 Kiku as my every day ski. Any shorter than that starts to feel a little squirrely at higher speeds or in deeper snow. This ski is really lightweight so you shouldn't have a problem maneuvering it.
If you want more of a powder ski I would check out the Nunataq! It's actually the tour version of the Kiku... Full rocker so you would definitely have no problem moving that around - plus it will float better in deeper snow.

nice lightweight long distance ski

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This ski is perfect for getting distance in ski mountaineering and ski touring... it is still good on the descent, but for me it excels in the lightweight design that allow me to get a ton of distance in a day, and still have fresh legs to get some of the goods I am going after... not the fattest ski, but good float, skis the hard pack well, I really enjoy this ski in corn conditions!

Does this ski come with a pair of skins?

These do not come with skins, however Volkl does make a skin cut specifically for these skins that we do not carry.
