cross country downhill

With three seasons of steady increases in backcountry ski participation, more and more people are discovering the appeal of untracked snow, and backcountry touring sales nearly doubled for the 2010-11 season, according to Snowsports Industries of America. The options are endless in the backcountry, where fresh tracks don’t have to mean steep peaks and big descents. Bridging between worlds of pure Nordic and alpine design, the new Cross Country Downhill (CCD) series of skis from Madshus continues to lead this growing category, allowing skiers to explore new frontiers with even more stability and ease.
