The Alp Tracks 85 is Movement's specialty tool for the ever-changing game of ski-mountaineering. The ski is designed for those longer, steeper, and faster missions. Every Alp Tracks ski is handmade using an advanced carbon/karuba layup to keep the weight low while optimizing ski performance and control. The core construction combined with an ABS sidewall and Movement’s Race-Edge gives that extra bit of confidence for the next steep line. But be warned: even though Alp Tracks 85 is a spring dream, you may find yourself forgetting that you own other skis as the 85 is equally entertaining for early season scouting and midwinter dawn patrols.

  • ASA (ABS Shock Absorber) is situated underfoot to create a smoother and more controlled ride.
  • 5-Axis Carbon weave layup with an extra 100% carbon unidirectional carbon layup on the top and bottom of the ski provide torsional rigidity and strength without compromising on weight.
  • VA-Tech rubber + fiberglass layer absorbs vibration in the tip of the ski.
  • Ultralight Karuba wood core is selected from sustainably managed sources certified by FSC & PEFC.
  • Sintered P-Tex 5000 bases are Movement's strongest and most durable for extra longevity.
  • Movement's DPR-Ti (Double Plate Reinforcement) provide a solid binding anchor.
  • Race-Edge design puts more edge where it is needed and drops weight where it isn't.

Update 2020/21: Movement is using an exclusive carbon layup for even better performance. Weight ticked up about an ounce per ski.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Ben
Is a 177 cm ski too short for me? I'm an expert skier (6'2, 182 lbs, 44 years old). I need a setup for fast and light missions, mountaineering, overnight tours, etc.

I have a heavier setup for sidecountry and powder (Aramada Tracer 108s at 188 cm length) that I love. I've just never skied on anything so short.
Answer from Will McD
Hi Ben,
A 177 ski should be just fine. I'm 6'0" and 180lbs and 177 is my go-to length, though I ski down to 170. Especially for fast and light trips and mountaineering, a shorter ski will be lighter and conserve energy while also making kick turns and navigating narrow couloirs easier.

Question from Shay O
Are these skis OK to use with telemark bindings? I know a lot of lightweight skis these days recommend against it
Answer from Teddy Young
Hey Shay, thanks for reaching out! We would not recommend pairing a telemark binding with this ski.

Question from Eric S
Considering a pair of these for my daughter. She's a great skier and strong, but featherweight. How heavy do you reckon she'd need to be to be happy on a pair of the 161s? (She's currently on old K2 Shuksanne skis, which have no rocker, size 153).
Answer from Zak M
Hey Eric, jumping from a 153cm ski to 161cm is a decent increase for sure. Without having other information like height it would be hard to say. Feel free to shoot us an email at help@skimo.co and we could discuss some potential options!

Question from Jim
Could you compare the performance and character of the AT 85 to the Magico.2? On paper I would guess the Movement would be a little turnier, more tolerant of a centered stance, but how do they actually ski?
Answer from eric
Jim-The Alp tracks are easy to initiate a turn and a bit softer tail then the Magico2's. I would agree with you that they tolerate a more centered stance, where the Magico's like a little bit more aggressive forward position. Magico's are also bit more damp and quiet than the Alp Tracks.

Question from Charlie
I am 6'2" and 165lbs. How long of a ski do you recommend for a lightweight mountaineering ski like this? I feel torn between the 177 and 169.
Answer from Jeff
Hey Charlie!! Lets put it to you. If you have always skied 177+ cm skis, and prefer that, the 177cm would be good. If you are planning on using for mountaineering/couliors and want light easily maneuverable ski, the 169 would be your choice. We have a few guys(about your size) here who have this ski and all use the 169.
