Product Features

Long time nordic backcountry skiers have a lot to appreciate with the Madshus Glittertind ski. Like most modern BC skis, it is much wider than skis of the past. What makes this beauty different than other wide touring skis, is the retention of near-classic ski length. Why? Ask any long time nordic backcountry skier, and the answer is - glide.

  • Norwegian ski design know-how keeps the Glittertind tough but surprisingly light in weight.
  • Triaxial Cap surrounds a laminated wood core to balance stiff torsional flex with a supple longitudinal flex.
  • Full length steel edge
  • MGV+ gripping base is finely tuned to optimize pattern to the pressure distribution of the ski.

"Do what they're supposed to."
I haven't used them enough. Don't have a lot of experience on BC cross country skis. Seemed to work ok a few times out making my own tracks in Southeast Alaska. Not great climbing on packed but good on easier terrain.

Yes, I would recommend this product.
