Movement Shaman Skis 2009

Movement Shaman Skis 2009

Versatility and ski-ability in a touring package designed for skiers who don’t spend their entire lives “mountain goat-ing” but also occasionally ski on-piste or regular terrain where they will benefit from more traditional Alpine-ski shaping and a stronger core.

A full Karuba wood-core delivers power and durability and the shape is not “over-sized” but progressive and forthcoming of a mid-radius 16-17m turn shape for a cruising ride.

Still light enough for touring, tough enough for tricky snow and regular use – the Shaman spans the void between a traditional Alpine ski to one of a tourer for a modern, refreshing all-mountain tourer.

A fine hybrid-Touring ski that is happy both on and off the marked trails, a red run or the Haute Route.

The manufacturer says this about the Movement Shaman Skis 2009:

We didn’t need to change much on the Shaman. It is one of the most versatile in the AT section. Even the most demanding tourer will be hooked by its handling in difficult terrain and on hard snow. The shaman is perfect for a skier needing a performance touring ski and an on-piste ski all in one.
