    I had high hopes that the Annum would become my backcountry ski of choice. A fishscale-based ski that's wide enough for decent flotation, stout enough for keeping an edge in icy conditions, able to make quick turns in the trees and on narrow trails. That would be perfect. I chose the next smaller length than the factory recommendation (I weigh 180 lbs, but got the 175cm length), and mounted my bindings so that the pin-line of my boot is on the matching pin-line of the ski (the 26.0 - 28.5 line).

    The skis don't climb super well, but they climb well enough. It was when I pointed them downhill in the trees that my smile turned to a frown, These things really do not like to make quick turns. It feels to me like there's a mile of tail out in back of me. Every time I try to finish one turn and start the next, I feel that stiff tail back there, sticking in the snow, trying to keep me going straight. It seems crazy to me, but I think I would have been better off with the shortest 165cm length, even though I'm 5' 7" (170cm) and weigh 180 lbs. I will re-drill and mount the bindings another 1.5cm back, and hope that fixes the too-long-stiff-tail feeling. But I'm not hopeful.

    If you want a fat XC ski for breaking trail or going hut-to-hut in deep snow, this should be just the ticket. But if you're looking for a telemark ski that can tour well without climbing skins, you may be disappointed in the downhill performance of this ski. The Annum is not a lot of fun on the down.

    Had these mounted up with an older pair of Dynafits. Took them on a hut to hut trip utilizing logging roads. It was nice not having to put skins on at the bottom of each hill and take them off at the top. Good grip on gentle and moderately steep roads but skins are definitely a good idea if you'll be switchbacking off trail or if conditions are super icy. Glide is a little less than a smooth ski on the downhill but quite acceptable. Turning was not super easy as I got a longer ski at 185 and they are a little stiff. Snow conditions were lousy though so not a great test. I think they would be reasonably easy to turn in corn or fresh snow. Overall, a good ski for low angle yo-yo tours, hut trips, ungroomed logging roads etc.
