Time to start thinking about winter, folks! What is your ski quiver looking like? Michigan, and many other snow states, offer a plethora of cross country ski opportunities. Whether it’s groomed nordic ski trails, state parks or wilderness preserves, frozen lakes, skied-in tracks, or deep powder, you will want to make sure you have the right equipment – and the right clothing – to thoroughly enjoy whatever terrain you want to explore this winter.
For groomed trail skiing, a Recreational No-Wax Ski Package is ideal for beginners, and any seasoned skier wanting lots of stability. Check out the Rossignol XT 60 Package for one of the best performing and versatile recreational packages available. Alternatively, a Skin Ski Package might be the ticket for anyone wanting to kick it up a notch with glide and agility. The Fischer Twin Skin Superlite is the go-to for high performance fitness fun!
If you’re leaning towards skiing off the beaten path, check out the Back Country Ski Packages for maximum control and stability on uneven terrain. Check out the Salomon Outpath 60, an ideal package for skiing a blend of un-groomed and groomed trails.
And, if you’re wondering about those skiers who are flying past you on the groomed trail system, look no further than skate skis. Beginners and intermediate skiers love the Salomon RS8 Skate Ski Package, and experienced skiers should check out the Fischer RCS Package.
Now, how about your clothing kit? For best-in-class ski pants, be sure to check out the Sporthill 3SP collection. With three fit options – fitted, semi-fitted, and relaxed – everyone will find a style that works perfectly for them. They are all made of the same amazing, breathable, wind-resistant, water-resistant knit fabric. For men and women, the Winter Fit Pant fits the closest, while best-selling XC Pant offers a semi-relaxed fit. The Terrain Pant for men, and the Traverse Pant for women, offer the most generous cut. Match with a large selection of men’s and women’s cross country ski jackets, plus men’s and women’s layering tops, and you’ll be ready for flurries in no time!
