Question from Alex F
 
I have a pair of Alp Tracks 89s that I love, and ski with a TLTX boot. I’m thinking about getting the Alp Tracks 100 or 106 to complement my other set up. Do you think the 106s could be driven well with such a light boot?

Answer from Emmett I
 
Alex,

People definitely do, and if you're mainly looking to ski powder and corn, they would be fine. They would be a bit soft to drive them well in crud/variable conditions. You can also size down a bit, that will help put less force on the forward/rearward flex of the boot.

Answer from jbo
"Hi Justin, I must object to the "not very fun" skis comment...I have dissimilar tastes to Brett and really like the current (soon to be old) version! The new version is moving away from me, who prefers a more precise ski, but hopefully, it's now in your wheelhouse!"

I think it is worth starting with JBO's quote. I bought both the older model and the newer model late this season. And it was Jason's comment here that really got me wondering just how much different the new version might be from last year's version.

"Who prefers a more precise ski?" That would be me, thanks ;) And without a doubt last year's 106 is a very precise ski. I was able to ski some of my best runs of the year (technically most difficult for snow and terrain) on the '22 version of the 106. I really like the ski. Being mounted online which is pretty far forward helps that ski IMO. ( see my comments above for details on weight and mount point between years) No question the older ski, even in a 106 width, is scalpel in bad snow and on steep terrain. I can't say enough good things about the ski. Either version is way more solid than it should for the weight at speed. The newer version is surfier, and releases a lot easier. The older version reacts better at some speed. You need to be on top of that ski. If you are the ski will pay dividends for sure. This year's model? It is mounted 2+ cm back from the previous ski . Which had me concerned when I was mounting. But, in for a penny in for a pound on Movement's skis. A bit of rocker added to tip and tail. A hand flex test tells me the tail is a bit softer. Overall I'd say the new ski is a little softer over this year. Frankly none of those changes were giving me high expectations over last year's Model. Turns out there really are times a ski company improves a ski, instead of just changing the top sheet. Almost but not quite dramatic in the 106's comparison. I've skied slush, powder, some nasty mank, both wet and dry in both. Loved the newest 106 everywhere I have skied it. May be a bit more than the earlier version. I simply love them! Really a fun ski to skin with and even better to carry. I've skied some glare, spring ice and some hard packed, in bounds, ice. None of that was any fun but the skis managed well enough. This is a very, very forgiving ski. Much more forgiving than the previous version of the 106. I like them both. But the new version just takes less effort and is simply more fun for me to ski. In the world of lwt 100+ touring ski, both are outstanding pieces of engineering. I was wondering if I would ever find a ski as light as, or lighter than, the Dynafit Denali-Dhaulagiri series? I have no doubt in my mind found, better skis than either, which is saying a lot for width, weight and versatility. And that is saying something in my book. I grew up on old school Rossi GS skis from the 80s. Boards you could rip around on at 35 or 40 mph with not too much effort. My Slopes phone app says the 106 is good for 35mph, no issues, and big smiles ;) I typically like making lots of turns these days. I don't do that at 35mph! 35mph is very likely as fast as I ever ski these days. But really fun to have a ski that seems capable of doing both without having to tightly crimp your toes in either venue. This is a really fun ski!

Question from Bryan Paradise
 
Hello,

I’m 5’10 200 lbs currently on Camox Freebirds 172 for touring and mountaineering. They were my first pair of skis and they feel a bit small on some days. I’m in the PNW with variable conditions here in the winter months, and I think the skis plus my size just make them less than ideal for soft snow. I’m looking to add another ski to the quiver. I had my eye on the alp tracks 100s last year, but see that they now have a 98, and the redone 106. Is this truly a powder ski or would it be good for variable conditions? Also, would it be manageable with the F1 LT boot that I currently have? I was contemplating getting the Technica peak carbons with a new setup. I’m ready to buy. I just need a nudge in the right direction!

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Bryan, good questions! Yes, the 172 would be a bit short for powder skiing. While not being a powder specialty tool, the 106 is good in powder and the extra length of the 177 would help as well. They are on the stiffer side which makes them hold up in variable conditions, but may also cause the tips to dive with a forward stance in the fluffiest powder (Utah 4%). The F1 LTs are a good match with this ski, noting it can handle being pushed by beefier boots as well.

For what it's worth, I still love my AT 100s (on my 2nd pair)! I found the old shape to be even more versatile since they were better on hard snow. I'm a bit lighter than you so you might find the equivalent in the old 106.

Answer from Bryan P
 
Thank you very much! Unfortunately, we don’t have the pleasure of that Utah 4% in WA!

I think I’ll go with the newer 106s at 177 and pairing with the Marker Alpinist 12. I’ll send a DM with one final question before I purchase. Thanks again!

Question from justin wilcox
 
What's the weight of the 178s? thanks
10/27/2022
Answer from Emmett I
 
Hi Justin,
Although weight can vary from ski to ski due to the natural variation in the wood core, the pair we have in the shop, still wrapped in plastic, weighed in at 2582 grams per pair, or 1291 grams per ski. We should have verified specs for all lengths soon, but in the meantime I hope that helps!

Answer from Dane
 
My 178s weigh in a 1296 and 1283. 40g+ lighter on my new newest pair than the previous version.

Answer from Dane
 
Also worth noting the newest version has a suggested mount point 2.5mm back from the previous version (178) and is a good bit softer overal. Most notably a softer tail.

Question from Chris Cawley
 
On the page for last years AT106, it says this years ski is “surfier” or something.

What are the changes for this years ski? Are the “race edges” new? I thought the previous skis had something other than race edges. And did the rocker/taper profiles or sidecut change?
10/19/2022
Answer from Tristan M
 
Hi Chris,

Thanks for reaching out! Movement went with a full overhaul on the Alp Tracks 106 for the 22/23 season. The Race Edge is new to the Alp Tracks 106 this season, as the 21/22 model had the Tour Edge. However, we are going to reach out to Movement to verify that fact. Movement has utilized the Race Edge on their Alp Tracks skis that are 95mm and narrower for quite some time.

Other than an edge change, the overall shape of the ski has been changed. The new Alp Tracks 106 has been given a more freeride oriented shape, with a longer turn radius, and greater rocker in the tip and tail. This translates to a ski that is easier to smear in a turn, and more playful. In other words, slightly less ready to rail an arc, but more manageable.

Answer from Tristan M
 
Hi Chris,

Movement has verified that they have indeed switched to the Race Edge on the new Alp Tracks 106.
10/21/2022
Answer from Chris C
 
Thanks Tristan. I think the edge change is unfortunate but the profile update sounds intersting. I like the shape of the old ski a lot but if it is more of a radius-turner than a butter knife.
