Some of the best skiing is yet to be had this season! Are you ready?

With longer days, lots of sunshine and a whole season’s worth of accumulated snow pack, now is the time to head up high and take advantage of your fitness and technique base!

Spring can bring about some of the best skiing of the year. Benefit from early morning crust skiing: cover some serious distance just cruising across the gift of the night frost. Skate or classic – your choice! Or, if you’re lucky enough to have consistent grooming in the late season, make sure to take advantage of the last tracks.

However, the combination of cold nights and long sunny days can also offer some of the most challenging waxing conditions for classic skiing. But instead of tinkering with klisters and soft wax, which tend to ice up if you hit fresh powder or drifted snow, try the new Madshus Intelligrip skin ski concept. Choose between the skin ski model Terrasonic Intelligrip Base, which comes with a mohair/nylon skin in the kick zone and ready for any track or trail right from the box, or the removable Intelligrip skins. Unlike traditional removable skins, Madshus Intelligrip fits any ski, from the skinniest race skis to fat backcountry boards.

Madshus new skin concept is the most versatile skins known to man, offering grip and glide you’ve never experienced on skins before.

The new Madshus Terrasonic IntelliGrip Classic ski features a brand new, innovative skin made from mohair and nylon in the kick zone, eliminating the need for traditional kick wax while still maintaining exceptional glide - and makes classic skiing easy as pie.

The exceptional performance is the result of combining mohair in the kick zone for grip and polyethylene, which is the same material used in the Madshus racing bases. This not only secures unmatched glide, but also helps avoid icing, a common problem with traditional skins.

The whole setup is so small it easily fits in your pocket, a drinking belt or a daypack. Madshus Intelligrip are easy to put on whenever they are needed, and work both on groomed trails as well as in the backcountry. And they can even be applied on top of grip wax! How smooth is that?
