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).

I just got some 185cm Alp Tracks 106s a few days ago, mounted them with Plum Guide toes, Kreuzspitze GT heels, left the factory tune alone, and took them to Mammoth Mountain to test them in the 2+ feet of spring snow they just received. I'm skiing them with Alien RS boots. These are just initial impressions and I'll try to post more after I get some more days on these things in their element. I wasn't sure for a minute if I wanted the size 185 or 177 at 6'0'' 175 lbs, for use as dedicated backcountry long-range powder seekers. Normally 185 would be a no-brainer for powder but its always nice to save a little more weight and fit in tighter spaces if you don't give up too much float. After some good advice from skimo.co (basically that they are not super demanding skis and I couldn't go wrong either way), I decided to embrace the quiver role and try the 185 for max float. When I first unpacked and flexed the skis I thought they hand-flexed very stiff underfoot and in the flat-ish tails. Uh oh... a super light, super stiff ski. It brought back memories of trying the Blizzard ZeroG 95 in dense chunky snow, which I thought were a bit unfriendly, though great on hard pack. On snow, I was thrilled to find the Alp Tracks to be surprisingly friendly, eager to turn but predictable, moderate flexing, and fun! They have a happy flex, not harsh, not wimpy, and not terribly stiff either. They make a really good pairing with the Alien RS boots. The tips have some early taper and a good amount of rocker, similar to the DPS Wailer 112, but less pronounced, and the Alp Tracks have a much more present tail (yet still easy to release) than my old and beloved Wailer pure carbon 112s and 99s whose biggest fault I think is their tail-less feel on steeps. This combo helped the Alp Tracks not deflect as much through the soft but heavy crud and avi debris that basically covered the upper areas of Mammoth Mountain while I was testing these skis. In fact, they did shockingly well in these conditions, and not just for a lightweight ski. They also were great on steep chalky stuff, and not bad at all on some bulletproof panels that started showing through under the new snow. The behavior and feedback from the Alp Tracks on hard pack was much better in my opinion than what I've experienced with the DPS Tour1 skis I've demoed a few times (which I feel are great skis but a bit harsh on firm), and better even than my pure carbons, but not quite as good as the Alchemist build (which is in a very different weight class of course). These skis aren't meant for hard pack obviously, but its nice to find out they can handle it well enough. I can't speak to durability yet, but these are by far my favorite lightweight skis I've tried in terms of downhill feel. If you're on the fence on size, I'd say go up. They turn easily, and swing weight is practically non-existent. I can't wait to get them into some real powder in the middle of nowhere.

Question from ben
 
I'm currently on the wailer 112 rp2 pure 3 in a 185 cm. looking for a backcountry quiver of one ski that is a good bit lighter. Im torn between this ski and the tour1 wailer 106. I ski mostly in colorado's front range and summit county, so we get a decent amount of pow, but I also love ripping couloirs and spring corn harvesting. any insight on which ski is a better choice? thanks!

Answer from Jeff m
 
Ben, The LT 106 is a great ski, Last years Backcountry Mag Editors Choice, but is more powder orientated then couloirs/ corn skiing. I also have the 112 Pure and have skied the 106 Tour 1 and they do not ski firmer conditions as well as the Pure carbons. I would definitely go for the Movements. If you are willing to go a bit heavier the Sessions 98 is really incredible. It is a bit stiffer construction and more sidecut and skis everything well.

Question from Kent
 
I currently have DPS 99 Tour 1 - how will these ski? Will these still be surfy and fun or will they need to be driven hard all the time??
12/31/2018
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Kent, while the Alp Tracks 106 is definitely a different shape and feel, it won't need to be driven hard and actually prefers not to be. That's not to say you can't ski it hard and fast, but it prefers a more balanced mid-foot input. The praise for this ski has been really high and spread across a pretty diverse set of abilities and backgrounds.

Question from Dustin Lemke
 
I'm curious about choosing a length of this ski. I currently ski on the Scott Super Guide 105's in a 183 cm and given the profile of this 106 I am leaning towards the 185 cm, but would like to get some feedback. With a more traditional shape (less rocker and decent amount of camber) I typically ski a 180 cm. However, for large rocker skis I have a pair of 188's with 115 cm under foot. I would consider myself an aggressive/expert skier at 5'10" and 170 lbs. Most of my touring is in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, mostly Tetons, and BC Canada.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Dustin! I'd probably go for the 185cm option based on what you said.

Question from Ryan H.
 
Could anyone compare this ski in 185cm to a BD Helio 185? I currently have the latter and think it skis very well but at 6'3" and 210lbs I push it to its limits, especially in terms of durability. 2 seasons on my Helios and I've got lots of damage, and thinking of replacing with this ski but concerned about durability and adequate stiffness. Thoughts?
3/1/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Ryan! There's more than enough stiffness behind this ski to rival the Helio 105, though I am interested in hearing what boots you'll be mounting on these? Durability-wise, just make sure when you go out to ski with them, you keep them on the snow (no hucking). If it's used as a mid-winter soft snow ski they'll be amazing. They tend to be better matched with lighter touring boots versus freeride boots.
3/1/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Ryan, the P-Tex and edges are very hard and impact resistant. Like other silly-light skis, however, the core could be compromised if used as a cliff-hucker.
3/4/2018
Answer from Ryan H
 
Thanks to you both. I have a variety of boot shells, all of which I run with Intuition Pro Tours: first generation Maestrale, Atomic Backland Carbon and even some old green BD shells I forget the name.

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...
3/7/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Ryan! Nice! This'll do really well at skiing fast and deep pow with any of those boots. There's a good amount of tip rocker and the long sidecut will make the ski fairly manageable in crust actually. The vast majority of people we see on this ski are cruising around with boots in the same weight category as the Backland Carbon. They do really well with the lightweight boots!

Hi Ryan, see here for a video of them being skied fast!

Question from Joe
 
Hi, I plan to put some inserts into my AlpTracks 106 skis (and want to do a good job!). I've installed inserts in before in other skis, but was just wondering if anyone had any comments/tips/warnings about doing it in the AlpTracks. I haven't installed them in carbon topsheet skis before, and the AlpTracks may have slightly unique construction, so I was wondering if there were any differences to consider. Thanks in advance.
1/17/2018
Answer from Rebekah S
 
Hi Joe,

No differences to consider when installing inserts in these skis. Business as usual!
5/20/2019
Answer from Brent
 
I noticed as I was installing my inserts that the core of the Alp Tracks is pretty soft, like a lot of lightweight skis, so count your rotations with your tap and when screwing in the insert. The tap and insert unit will just keep right on going into the core and end up too deep if you don't stop at 5 rotations. That's a good practice anyway, but skis with a more dense core will give you more resistance when you hit the bottom of the hole.

Question from Igor Voronin
 
what is the difference between the MovemeNT ALP TRACKS LT 106 and Movement Alp tracks LTD 106?
12/20/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Igor, there is no difference. Much of the Movement marketing material refers to LTD, but the skis themselves were imprinted with LT. They've actually dropped both from the skis for 17/18, and also from the marketing materials for 18/19. But the fact remains that all the Alp Tracks are handmade, Limited Edition skis.
