Many of history's greatest thinkers (Plato, Socrates, and 50 Cent alike) have asked in a variety of ways the same question; “Why mess with a good thing?” It is even reported Socrates went to his deathbed without ever finding an answer to this all-encompassing question. Tragic! Well, the Swiss philosophers masquerading as engineers at Movement have at long last stumbled upon the answer, which is ... to make it better, of course! With the Alp Tracks 95, Movement has improved on the much-loved platform of the Alp Tracks 94 by flattening the tail and elongating the camber compared with its predecessor. The addition of a carbon layup allows this ski to charge downhill with the fury of boards twice their weight, while the use of Movement's race-grade edges maintains the hard-snow prowess that the Swiss brand boasts with every ski. If you take the time to prep your bases they should at least have the courtesy to hold on to wax and not cut like hot butter when you hit those thin patches of snow. To accommodate our needs, Movement has opted to use a P-Tex 5000 base, which strikes a great balance of workhorse grade materials with high wax retention. As a versatile performer that sparks creative thinking among even the most jaded of ski tourers, the Alp Tracks 95 is the inspirational lightning strike your ski life has been waiting for.

  • Unique VA-Tech tips have rubber & fiberglass to help absorb vibration.
  • Ultralight Karuba wood core helps to keep the grams at bay.
  • All carbon construction utilizes a manual finishing process.
  • DPR-Ti (Double Plate Reinforcement) anchors the binding to the ski.
  • Race Edge tuning holds up to icy conditions without weighing you down.
  • P-Tex 5000 base boasts high impact resistance.
  • Radius Controlled Shaping helps keep ski characteristics consistent between different ski lengths.

Update 2022/23: This beloved ski has received a topsheet makeover as well as "renamed" length options (Movement added 1cm to each length descriptor). The ski itself has not physically changed.

Question from Pawel
 
Hi, I am thinking of buying Alp tracks 95. I am 178 cm tall and 80kg heavy. Which size do you think will be best for me 170 or 178?
3/21/2024
Answer from Carlos M
 
Hi Pawel,

I think you may find the 178cm to be more satisfying on the downhill at your height and weight. The 170cm length would work as well and would make more sense as a mountaineering ski, but the 178cm will have a bit more stability at speed and better float in deeper snow.

Question from Chris Cawley
 
I’m thinking about a 95 mm ski. Current I’m on my second pair of AT 106 which I ski almost all the time, and have some backland 85 UL for ~spring conditions. Basically I want a lighter/smaller ski for faster travel while still being surfy. I ski a lame X-alp ski boot so I can’t ski/don’t want a burly stiff ski. Thinking of AT 95, helio carbon 95, voile hyper vector. Care to compare?
3/16/2024
Answer from Jeff
 
Chris, An Alp Tracks fan. The AT 95 has a more All Mountain shape to them. Not as surfy, but a noticeably quicker turn radius. They will still feel nice and comfortable to you. Not sure about the Helio 95, but the HyperVector would be a light and playful ski too. For light and Fast, the Movement can't be beat. We have a Demo if you want to test drive first.

Question from Quinton
 
Hi SkiMo, I am thinking of getting the 95/186 Alp Tracks as a replacement for my current Movement 'Source' model ski (albeit 94) which I bought many (!!) years ago but have loved skiing the 'Source' skiis soooo much I have never felt the need to buy new ones (sorry but when you are on a good thing, I think, stick to it!). The time has come when I need to upgrade. I am now somewhat older (over 50 ;) and don't really tour anymore...just up and down and side/off piste whenever I can. Would you suggest I consider a ski that isn't so suited for touring and downhill, and which is a little more forgiving and respectful of my age (if so any recommendations), get the new 95s?
12/21/2023
Answer from Niko M
 
Hi Quinton! I agree! The Movement Source was the freeride focused ski of their lineup then. Damp, fast, and stable all seem like common agreed upon characteristics of that ski. Now with the Alp Tracks 95, we could likely say the same thing, but we are slightly comparing apples to oranges here. The Alp Tracks 95 utilizes an ultralight construction that gives them their famous uphill efficiency. If your usage would consist of uphill resort skiing, the Alp Tracks 95 would be a great choice and would offer a great deal of versatility. With that being said and with this construction in mind, however, these are not designed to handle the day to day abuse of the resort if you plan on riding the chair frequently. If you'd like to chat about this more, send us an email at help@skimo.co. Thanks!

Question from James h
 
Hey Skimoco and readers, please can you point me in the right direction.

I have some dynafit blacklight pro, a great ski when used in their right place. I'm now looking for something else to add to my cupboard that's bigger and easier to ski (less stiff) for the odd powder day we have or the more likely variable conditions. I'm not the most skilled and struggle with the blacklight in these places so want to make my life a bit easier and enjoy descending more.

I was thinking of the backland 95 or alp tracks 90/95, I discounted the black crows carmox due to weight but maybe I shouldn't ?

Thanks!

Answer from Gabriel I
 
Hi James, between the Backland 95 and Alp Tracks 95, the Backland emphasizes friendly turn initiation whereas the Alp Tracks offers a little more backbone. The Alp Tracks is lighter than the Backland as well. While it's damp for its weight, less mass generally means a less damp feel. Both are less stiff and better suited for all around conditions than the Blacklight Pro. Please feel free to reach out to help@skimo.co if you'd like to get into more details!

Question from Brendan
 
you might want to check the weights on the current gen of alp tracks 95's. Their website says 1330 grams for a 186cm and mine weigh 1370 and 1375 respectively in that length. They've gained a bit of weight each year for the last couple of years. It is a substantially more solid and damp ski than the generation from 5 years ago that I have (alp tracks 94 - 183cm - 1220 grams average per ski). They are great skis but they don't weigh 1275 anymore ;)
5/22/2023
Answer from Jeff
 
Brendan, Thanks for the follow up and history. All I have to weigh now is the 170cm and came out right on 1150g each.
We weigh all the skis and in some models, have seen as much as 100g range within a size. Most not that much, but shows that they are indeed Handmade.
Yes, the older Movement were lighter. They were a bit light on the mounting plate and have since been beefed up.

Hi, how you would compare the movement alp traks 95 with the zag ubac 95 because i have the zag and i'm wondering if this is a similar option to change my ski.
2/18/2023
Answer from Gabriel I
 
Hi Benjamín, the Alp Tracks 95 is lighter than the ZAG UBAC 95, and I'd describe the Alp Tracks as a little more lively. It's got a similar overall shape to the UBAC, though, and would be appropriate for the same sort of snow and conditions you're currently skiing on your Zags.

Question from Matt
 
How would you compare this to the M-tour 99? I gather this one is more versatile to firmer snow but are they in the same ball park for soft now and is the alp tracks noticeably more demanding?
1/20/2023
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Matt, the AT 95 is not demanding, quite easy to ski actually. Nicely integrated sidecut and rocker make it pivot quickly in soft snow. I think, like a lot of Movements, this ski carves really well on harder snow but you can do it with a balanced stance and are not forced to drive the tips. The M-Tour is also good on hard snow and a bit more damp with the Basalt. Takes a bit longer (or more force) to come around with the longer radius.

Question from HansHansen
 
Hey SkiMo-Team, I am looking at a new touring set up, mostly for multi day, hut-to-hut touring trips. So far, I have done day trips with Line Sick Day 106 and Shift bindings. That worked well. I am considering Now a much lighter set up. As background: I am an experienced skier, 6 foot 5, 198 lbs, above 40 ;)

- Movement Alp Tracks 95

- Volkl Rise Above 88

- Volkl Rise Beyond 97

With ATK Freeraider 12.

What do you think? My main problem/challenge is exhaustion on the uphill… Downhill is almost never a problem.

Many thanks for your guidance!
12/27/2022
Answer from Tristan M
 
Hi HansHansen,

Some thoughts for you:

The Movement Alp Track 95 is an excellent choice where distance and uphill performance are at a premium. These skis are incredibly light. However, for their weight, they are phenomenal on the way down as well. They have a softer tip, but a more supportive tail. They are lively, with the ability to make a wide range of turn radii. Also, nimble in the trees. If you dampness is high on your list of ski metrics, there are damper skis out there, at the cost of additional weight.

The Volkl Rise Above 88 is more of a spring specific ski at its waist width. Also, it will be a slightly stiffer ski than the Movement Alp Tracks 95. However, it is still reasonably approachable, and also quite light.

The Volkl Rise Beyond 96 is a super versatile ski. It will be damper than the prior 2 skis, with a similarly approachable shape. It will have a surfier feel in deep snow, at the expense of some weight on the way up.

For a a traverse/hut to hut ski, I would lean Alp Tracks 95.

I look at the Movements every year and drool…but I just can’t. What do all of you consider to be the closest match spring-corn-volcano-cruising-couloir-quiver-killer in the 85-96 waist range that’s under $1000? I have a pair of ZG85’s but looking for more or an allrounder that’s more forgiving of tired legs.

Hi,

A couple of recommendations would be the Armada Locator 96 and the Dynastar M-Tour 90. Granted, with the current sale, the price isn't all that different!

Question from Justin G
 
Hey SkimoCo, I am thinking about these skis or the Blizzard 0G-95s for an all around touring ski in the PNW. They will be paired with a Scarpa F1LT (or similar), any input which ski would preform better with this boot combo and in variable conditions of the NW?

Thanks
9/21/2021
Answer from Will McD
 
Hi Justin,
The Blizzard 0G's have a stiffer flex than the Alp Tracks which have a softer tip to help with float. The Zero G's are hard-chargers that excel at volcano skiing and spring mountaineering while the Alp Tracks are more of a jack-of-all-trades, though they will be less stable at higher speeds. Either ski should pair well with the F1 LT category of boots, though the Blizzards are more likely to get away from you if you falter keeping them reined and controlled; however, when adequately driven, they become a powerful tool for getting around the mountains and bagging objectives.

Question from Annie
 
Hi Team!

I've been pondering the Movement Alp Tracks 95 vs the Voile Hyper Vector. What are your thoughts on ski performance and style of each of these skis?
6/2/2021
Answer from Zak M
 
Hey Annie, thanks for the question! While these two skis may share the same category of a "touring" ski they do differ a fair amount. The Alp Tracks 95 is a pretty solid "expert" level ski, meaning it's relatively stiff yet damp and wants to be turned at higher speeds. The Hyper Vector on the other hand will have softer more rounded flex and a higher turning radius which leads nicely to a variety of turns and being more forgiving overall. So in short, depending on your skill level either ski could be an excellent choice but the Movement Alp Tracks 95 will just require a bit more input to get the most out of it. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Question from Chris
 
I (about 6'2", 205lbs ) am looking for a one-quiver ski for CO perhaps bent more toward the direction of skiing steeps in Spring but should should also respectably handle variable conditions on lower angle during mid-Winter. I think the Alp Tracks 95 would fit the bill, but I am having a hard time justifying the high price. I am also considering the Blizzard Zero G 95 (not too keen on the obnoxious colors), and Atomic Backlands 95 - both of which appear to slot similarly to the Alp Tracks, weigh close-enough to the same, and, most importantly, cost almost $450 less. I'd be willing to foot the bill if the Alp Tracks ski that much better (understanding my ability is probably the limiting factor here - not the ski) and/or have superior durability that would allow a longer useful lifespan. What do you think - are these skis really worth it over the others? Any other ski suggestions?
2/16/2021
Answer from Jeremy L
 
Excellent questions, Chris. Having owned variations of all these skis, (ZeroG 95, Alp Tracks-Backlands in 100mm widths) I'd thought I'd answer this. Let's just take the Blizzard out of the equation because of the obnoxious colors and lesser soft snow performance. Between the Movement and the Atomic, I think the Backland is going to handle variable snow better, is a bit friendlier, and the lower price tag doesn't hurt either. The Alp Tracks are a pleasure on the up, superb skiing when at speed, and the price tag is definitely worth it if you want a ski that will grow with your abilities.

(Addition to my one liner review since the first one failed to save it all).

These skis are magic! Originally, I contemplated waiting to submit a review, until I have skied more than a handful of times on the Movement 95 Alp Tracks, except I have been enjoying them soooo much I could not wait any longer to share my thoughts. Okay, I might be a little overzealous as I have been skiing on heavy tele-gear for the last 20+ years. My knees are certainly grateful for the change. I have also noticed that I am more self confident in tight trees, and I want to go on longer tours, with more laps.

These skis are versatile and responsive, in varied snow conditions. I have skied them in powder, wind damaged and sun damaged snow. These skis carve through it all. Wow! They make me giddy. The graphics are very appealing to the eye, too. Bottom line, I believe Movement has created a beautiful ski with it all: performance, function and looks.

Skimo Co helped me find this perfect set up. Thank you!

Question from Charlie Singer
 
Would you recommend this ski or the Movement Alps 100? I am looking to pair with BD Helio 200 LTs (open to suggestion there if you'd recomment something else) and with Fischer Travers boot but want to make sure the boots aren't too overpowered by the ski.
12/2/2020
Answer from Julieana
 
Hey Charlie, neither ski will overpower the Fischer Travers boot. However, if you're looking for something that is going to be more of an all condition/all-terrain ski the 95 will be the better choice of the two as it will be more maneuverable in rougher snow conditions.
