Altai Skis

The Hok is designed as an easy to use ski for the backcountry. Its short  wide dimensions makes the ski incredibly maneuverable, and the  integrated climbing skin gives the Hok great traction for climbing.The  right balance of running base and skin material makes the ski’s downhill  speed manageable and easy to control. Bridging cross-country skis and  snowshoes, the Hok combines the maneuverability and ease of use found in  snowshoes with the ski’s efficiency of sliding forward rather then  lifting and stepping with each stride.

The Hok features a synthetic climbing skin integrated into the base of  the ski, steel edges for durability, and a light weight cap  construction. In an effort to minimize our carbon footprint, we use, a  sustainable paulownia wood corereinforced with a combination of  organicnatural fibers and fiberglass. Simple graphics and natural fibers  combine with design themes from the the Altai Mountains for a unique  look.
