Backcountry ski (snowshoe skis)

These skishoes are perfect when you plan to roam around in wooden area, so you can thread between trees easily. In Québec city you can go to the Plains of Abraham for a day of fun


A skishoe is the happy marriage between a ski and a snowshoe! Those skis facilitate moving around in the snow, especially in deed fluffy snow because they are so much wider than regular skis. But because they are still skis, they glide and slide, allowing you to move faster than you would with snowshoe. Thanks to climbing skins under the sole, you'll also be able to easily climb almost anywhere: it's the ultimate tool to explore without limits and regardless of conditions!

One day Skishoe rental includes:

  1. Skishoe OAC SKINBASSED WAP 129, wide for a great floattation on powder
  2. Skishoes are equipped with climbing skin imbedded in the ski sole
  3. Universal adult binding for regular winter boots
  4. Telescopic ski poles.


Chose warm boots with flexible soles allowing your feet to flex at the toes. Rigid soles would prevent the natural flexion movement you need to move ahead or climb hills. 

The bindings are designed to secure your boots to the skishoe, thus your boots must be firmly set on your feet at the risk of sliding off your feet in mid track.

If you do not have the rights boots it is possible to rent them at our shop
