Crown also available for same price


I bought the crown for $110 w/ free shipping. I don't think there are any more left though.

That's still a good deal though... nice skis.

Thanks for posting!

Very interesting ski- and incredible price- also comes in a 208cm!!

I have no experience with Alpina's backcountry skis...

Very tempting...

Alpina Discoveries are cool... I owned a few pairs...
Mostly DH oriented, single camber... But too heavy for my taste...

Not skis, but goddamn that is a steal (steel?) even with international shipping.

PSA for male telemarkers and wannabe telemarkers with small feet. Alaska Mountaineering and Hiking in Anchorage has a few pairs of T4s for 75.00. The largest size I saw were 26, they were a few years old without the moldable liners. They would be a good deal for someone if they would ship them.

FWIW I tried on a pair at REI today and was surprised how much lighter and softer they are than my T2 ecos. I think they are lighter and softer than my old leather boots and I think they might ski better too. They were $399.00, anybody see them for less?
