Re: Looking for BC XCd Ski Recommendations

I am surprised that you are getting the advice to avoid waxless skis. If you are breaking trail, the glide isn't going to be much different with waxable or waxless skis.

Re: Looking for BC XCd Ski Recommendations

I have been contemplating the USGI Skis, but after shipping and a set of bindings it gets to be in the same price range as a used ski, locally.

Looking for BC XCd Ski Recommendations

New here, and found the site by researching some skis posted for sale locally. I am looking for a ski that I can run up and down the closed logging roads in the area, while winter bird hunting.
