Perfect for off-track skiing in the hilly backcountry of the Canadian Shield, especially in soft fresh snow where they track very well. Compared to 35cm snowshoes in 24" of heavy but fresh snow, these stayed on top of the snow much better, were less tiring, and of course much more fun on the descents. However, obviously they can't climb as well as snowshoes: I had to traverse some steeper slopes that the snowshoes went straight up. The short length makes for easy navigation through denser forests. On hardpack/icy surfaces, the combination of a very wide ski with no steel edges means they slide sideways a lot. However, this was compounded by my boots having minimal ankle support. For those conditions, I found the OAC KAR 147s perform better, being both narrower and having steel edges means they provide for better edging. Would be curious to try a more supportive Telemark boot like a T4. EA bindings are super convenient and create a very natural bending point at the toes.

Very fast shipping (within 4 to Germany)! I have a lot of fun with the skis and enjoy it to go with skis to the woods without any track!

These are beautiful! Seem very well made. Surprisingly light. Binding was easy to set up on arrival. Love that the binding is universal, so I can share them with my wife until our kids get big enough to let us both go out together. No special boots required! Shipping was very quick, received within a week. We don't need trails where we're going!

These skis are so much fun! Wonderful product and incredible shopping experience. The customer service was wonderful and we received the skis in record time with no complications. So happy with our experience that we ordered two more pair!

These skis are a joy to use. We live on a hilly farm and wanted something that would handle rugged, ungroomed trails. What a dream to be able to ski in our own backyard. I did not think I would be able to get up our steep hills but it's as easy as a summer hike with the OAC Skis. The binding action is brilliant, too. Beautifully crafted. Best purchase of the year and loved them so much my husband bought a pair.
