    Why We Like The Capo Alpine Touring Ski

    They say powder days are rare, but with La Sportiva's Capo Ski we're willing to push another mile or ten in search of the soft stuff. We like that La Sportiva sized it for powder and built it light enough for long-distant touring. A full rocker gives a surfy feel in soft snow, and the progressive sidecut stops on the dime when the only soft snow left is at no-fall zones.

    • Touring ski sized for powder at the far reaches of the backcountry
    • Beefy 117mm waist wide with rockered tip & tail maximize powder play
    • Progressive sidecut holds speed and stops quickly when needed
    • Poppy poplar wood core with paulownia paneling for lightness
    • Carbon laminates enhance stiffness without adding much weight
    • Fusion sidewall increases torsional rigidity and durability

    Recommended Sizing Guide

    Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
