Reviewed by drew the snowboarder from breckenridhe, co on Wednesday, January 28, 2015
I odered the matching nnn touring boots to go with these and went out today to the local Nordic center here in Breckenridge, Co...what a blast! I usually snowboard but there hasn't been much snow lately, and I'm not much of a park rat, I prefer back bowls and tree running...so I ordered these to have something to do since I quit my job and decided to be a ski bum for the next month or so...and I am loving it. I have never skied before nor snowshoed so I have nothing to compare this to, and hell I don't even know if I'm doing it right, but I had a great time on these this morning, even went down a black diamond run at the Nordic center, side stepped down half of the steep roll in to sharp curve with rocks and a stream to avoid, then turned my skis downhill and so much fun, they can pick up some serious speed on the steep terrain and glide smoothly on the flat stuff. I found it easy to go uphill even on steep inclines with these as long as I put a lot of downward pressure and keep my poles in the ground behind me...even with my poles being too short and skis a bit too long, I weigh 150 lbs but opted for a ski length built for a 170 lb person, so I can have a backpack and do some camping with these. Overall I can't find anything wrong with these and for $120 it was a great buy and much fun to come on days when there is no fresh powder.
