The Fischer Transalp 105 CTI is the widest offering in the Transalp touring lineup. With a 105-millimter waist, this an ideal ski for skiers who live or are traveling to areas with a copious snowpack, and spend most of their time skiing powder or soft snow. This would be an ideal touring ski for western skiers, or a quiver ski for eastern skiers when Mother Nature cooperates. But don’t let its width fool you, due to its Sandwich sidewall construction, Paulownia wood core and Tour Ricker, it can hold an edge nicely when you encounter hardpack snow or ice, which is always present somewhere on a ski tour. The ski really comes alive in powder with great float, but also slices and dices its way through variable snow conditions like chunder, crud and windblown snow. A 22-meter turns radius is ideal for skiers who like to make long sweeping turns with speed down big, open faces. For backcountry skiers who want a powder or soft snow ski to take them to the next level with, less effort on the up and more power and surf-ability on the down, the Fischer Transalp 105 CTI is the perfect tool for the job.
