Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around ski! I have owned these skis for several years now and am nothing but pleased. We ski everything from pulling pulks in the BWCA camping to groomed classic trails. I typically ski 2-3 days a week for 3-4 months out of the year. Though no product is perfect, I have run them through the paces and am pleased. If you are running only serious BC, go to a 75mm binding and BC 90 ski ( or telemark ). If you are running groomed trails at your local trail system, buy touring skis. If you are looking for a utility ski that will perform in all of these, this is a great ski!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Very little grip. I have owned Rossignol Back Country skis for about 13 years now and loved them, so getting the same in the new version was a no-brainer. However, these are very different in one area: almost no "fish scales" underneath, so sliding backwards on even the slightest incline is very frustrating. The store I purchased them from replaced the XL with the L version, thinking the shorter ski would help grip did slightly, but I still cannot go up much of an incline without side-stepping or herring-bone stepping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ski for light backcountry use. I must have different technique then the others reviewing this ski. I really have never run into any issues with getting up hills or traversing around on them. I use a 3 pin voile HD binding with some rossignol 3 pin backcountry boots. I am a little over weighted for the flex of this ski, so that may be why I can climb without much issue. This isn't a "fast ski" by any means, but I can turn on it with very little issue and it has served me well when I'm exploring into the backwoods of northern MN to take winter photos.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rossignol BC 70 - horrible ski. This ski is horrible, I used to ne a national xc skier and bought this for touring in the mountins. The ski has absolutely no grip, you might as well walk up the hills. The ski also does not turn well. I personally think this ski should be taken off the market. I am thankful that I bought it at REI - where i could return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy skier I am happy with my new skis. I've been out twice. Not being a downhill skier, my downhill technique limits what I attempt. Compared with my old skis, these skis enabled me to control some very basic descents with a more slope than I could have handled before. The back-country bindings are a little wider than standard and give a little more torque. That is what I was hoping for. Anticipating improving my skills as I get used to them the rest of this season.

Do the skis come with the NNN BC bindings already mounted or do I need to do that?
