Marquette Backcountry Ski

The Marquette Backcountry Ski is perhaps the easiest way to get out and enjoy winter's wonderful weather more comfortably. It has a similar feel to snowshoes on flat and semi-steep terrain, and can ride down soft, deep snow somewhat like a powder ski. There's a fishscale-like pattern on the base that assists with grip when the trail gets a little steep, and the fishscales don't interfere with downhill riding at all. Marquette built it out of the same blow-molded plastic as kayaks for outdoors-worthy durability, and threaded brass inserts and included bolts for 3-pin cross country bindings. Depending on the binding, you can wear Nordic boots or more casual footwear so anyone can use this affordable ski.

Can you pit touring skins on these for better grip uphill? Seems like the front attachment should work fine, but I'm worried about the rear clip on standard skins not working.

Do you sell bindings for the Marquette Backcountry Ski? If so how much do they cost? Do they accomodate boots? Three pin? or something else? Please advise. Thanks, Guy

Hi Guy, the Marquette Skis take a cross-country three pin binding, like Rottefella Super Tele Bindings. And for boots, you'd want 3 pin telemark boots 75mm like the Scott Voodoo 75mm Telemark Boot.
