Hiking skis are suitable for a variety of backcountry activities from open fells to dense forests. Moving around with hiking skis is faster than with regular snowshoes. The skis are wide enough to support the skier on top of the snow. Twin tip ski is easy to use in deep snow and makes moving backwards possible, and tapering tale adds facility of controlling. Anar hiking skis are also a safe choice for those skiing with a pet, as the ski does not have sharp steel edges.
Any shoe is suitable for the universal binding (sold separately) so for example, warm winter or hiking shoes can be worn while skiing. The bindings are sold separately.
The hiking skis are available in different lengths. The shorter ski is more agile and is well suited for denser woods or slopy terrain. As the length and width of the ski increase, the load capacity also improves. So when choosing the size of the ski, take into account the terrain where you will use the ski as a rule. In addition to this, it is worth considering the size of the user, as the length of the ski also affects the load capacity.

The binding is also easy to adjust with gloves on. The package contains two bindings and mounting hardware. When installing the ties, be sure to add wood/ universal glue to the holes before screwing in the screws. The screws must be screwed in by hand, do not use a cordless drill.
The poles enhance snowshoeing making it easier to stay upright in deep snow. The poles have a large ring that prevents them from sinking deep into the snow. The rubber handle and adjustable wrist strap improve the grip on the hand. The sharp and durable metal tip helps to progress on icy surfaces. The length of the pole is adjustable between 90 and 155 cm. In soft snow, you need slightly longer poles than in hard-packed snow.
