The new project from V.I.O POV camera founder Dave Ollila, the Marquette backcountry skis require no skins to climb and can slide without catching. A durable, simple and inexpensive ski, the Marquette will help make the backcountry more accessible to everyone this winter.
The Marquette backcountry skis are made out of a mixture of polypropylene, glass, silicone and brass, making them 100% recyclable. A unique scale design on the bottom of the skis grabs the snow and keeps the skis from sliding backwards while climbing.
Similar to snowmobile skis, the backcountry skis are blow-molded, meaning you get a quality ski at a reasonable price. Threaded inserts allow for no-drill mounting of standard three pin bindings so you don't have to go out and buy all new special kit.
The Marquette backcountry skis will retail for $179 and internet sales will begin next week.
