Armada Locator 96 Skis 2024

You know a company like Armada couldn't just make a standard issue touring ski without putting their own twist on it. The all-new Locator series brings Armada's special blend of freestyle heritage and creative style to the ultralight touring market, and the outcome is something special. The Armada Locator 96 Skis are the most traditional touring skis in the series, with a sub 100 waist width and a respectably airy 1350 gram weight. But those techy uphill numbers are paired with smooth lines and tapered tips to make for a ski you can count on for long, technical missions without sacrificing any fun on the descents. Plus, they're unisex and come in two color options: so you can pick what's best for your style and stature.

Salomon S​/Lab MTN Alpine Touring Ski Boots 2023

The Salomon S/Lab MTN Alpine Touring Ski Boots have had a long successful run in the rapidly changing world of AT boot-land, and for good reason. They ski as well as many dedicated alpine boots, and still feature exemplary smoothness and mobility on the skintrack. The simple-but-effective design has proven to be durable and efficient in high alpine conditions, earning the boot many friends among hardcore ski tourists. Though its 98mm last is on the narrow end of the spectrum, the S/Lab MTN features a heat-moldable Grilamid shell that adapts itself well to wider feet with the Custom Shell heat molding process.

Product Details
