Skis for ski touring and ski mountaineering should be lightweight for moving uphill, at the same time they must withstand demanding conditions of untouched terrain with diverse snow types on the way down the hill. The width of ski is very important factor. The wider the surface, greater the buoyancy and better the control of the ski in deep snow. On the tail and tip of the ski there are often sockets to hold climbing skins, which are attached to the base of the ski before the ascent starts. This kind of ski are almost exclusively made with sandwich structure, composing light and solid materials such as carbon, titanal, aramid and various wood types like paulownia, caruba, beech, poplar, ash, maple. Skis are divided into the 3 categories according the activity: Skialpinism racing – ultralight weight (the pair weight max. 1400 grams), classic ski touring (75-95 mm usual width of the ski under the binding) and skis for those who emphasize comfortable downhill skiing, freeride touring or freeride.
