Photo of the Week – Imagine If All This Rain Was SNOW

Deep powder in Vermont's Green Mountains

And by the looks of the rainy forecast, it might be worth clearing out the schedule for Monday, too…

Let it rain.

    Hi. Like your posts and videos on the Marquettes. I have a pair and they have been great in the small wooded hills of south-central Ontario. Just bought a pair of Altai Hoks because I think the metal edges, lighter weight and skin insets may all work to advantage in my home turf.

    Just wondered if you have tried them, or are considering them?

      I haven’t actually tried the Hoks, but I am familiar with their design and construction, generally…and I’ve spent some time with Nils in the past. Great guy. The Hoks are beautiful skis…and they deserve a spot in any well-rounded skier’s quiver. The Marquette Backcountry Skis, on the other hand, are in a league of their own, no doubt, requiring little more than gravity and earth to get one skiing (snow not required!), and they go, happily, where few skis have gone before. The Hoks, I imagine, are a great ski for kicking around casually in nearly all snow conditions, and I imagine them being an especially fun ski for spontaneous adventures out the backdoor. Keep us posted as you have thoughts about the Hoks to share. I’m dying to get out skiing on some. Thanks John. – Brian
