See a good report on Scott Crusair.
'To be short (and in answer to my initial question): yes, Scott Crusair go!
Did a trip to the local highest place (1324m above sea level) - starting down in the valley I had to gather altitude over 800meters. Reaching the summit I turned to the other side of the mountain, ploughing powders some 400+ meters down. Uphill (skins on, again) back to the summit and 800meters of exctasy back to the parking lot (some 4+ strenuous hours)
Skis: In powders, they go into the (compact) curve even more easily than my late Fischers, while the float is still incredible.... Wow! I am delighted.
Boots: amazing as well - soft, comfortable at uphilling (no blisters despite the “warm” G-fit inners), miracuosly turning into real “race solid” squezzers while downhilling. Great, great, great.
Sure as hell this kit is the best randonee gear I ever had.'
This is a quote from longer discussion at:
'We had 3 weeks of pure pleasure testing these skis two seasons ago, including a 6 day ski mountaineering trip in the Piz Bernina area of Switzerland. During this period, we threw every thing we could at these skis, crud, hardpack, powder, steep ascents and thrilling descents. The Crusair didn't disappoint, at the end of the test we all decided to make the Crusair our touring skis this season.'
Some online services in Europe will ship to the US, I think I am right in saying:
They are said to be the ski of choice with guides and pisteurs in Verbier.
I have bought a pair myself but haven't skied them yet as a part for my bindings has got lost in the Christmas post!
