With the Alp Tracks line, Movement has levelled up in their quest for the perfect lightweight backcountry skis. Using a labor-intensive carbon fiber construction process, the Swiss company has managed to make skis much wider than their previously top-end X-series designs, which topped out at 89mm underfoot. The AlpTracks build process uses the highest quality carbon fiber arranged in a clever, multidirectional manner around a light wood core. They further strengthened the skis with mini-sidewalls underfoot to make them relatively damp and resistant to rock damage. The Alp Tracks 106 is the ultimate wide, lightweight ski for blasting powder and ripping in variable conditions. Truly a ski to behold. And ski.
- ABS Shock Absorber is a mini-sidewall underfoot that dampens the ride.
- Tour Edges are variable thickness, adding material in key impact zones.
- VA-Tech vibration absorber is a rubber-infused fiberglass in the ski tips.
- Shaped with a rockered tip and friendly sidecut amenable to skiing fast.
- Double Plate Reinforcement is two integrated layers for binding strength.
- P-Tex 5000 bases are hard to resist rocks and fast to resist spring snow.
- Ultralight wood cores follow FCS & PEPS forestry management standards.
Update 2018/19: New topsheet graphic, mostly same construction (slight beefing up of the mounting area).
Update 2020/21: With the introduction of a brand-new carbon matrix layout, the construction of the Alp Tracks line has ensured Movement will be helping you ski into the new season with a lightweight and durable ski that's sure to hold up in stiff and deep turns. With increase torsional stiffness and a gorgeous new top sheet, the Alp Tracks 106 is a premium value, and performance-based, ski for the new year.

Questions & Reviews
Any insight would be appreciated.
I do my best to keep my skis on the snow, but I do like to ski fast sometimes and constantly find myself skiing fast deep pow, jump turning tight couloirs, variable conditions, breakable crust through the alders, all in the same day.
Thanks for your feedback...
