The Ingstad BC is a modern back country ski with a generous sidecut, built for speed and agile turns.
An ideal ski for demanding descents and extended traverses across flat terrain alike, its versatility comes from a moderate wax pocket, a pronounced Nordic rocker, and a tapered tip: it is stable, willing to turn, and easy to handle in deep snow and demanding terrain.
The ski’s triple core of paulownia and poplar allows a low weight: a pair of 200cm skis is fractionally over 2kg.
Ingstad BC skis are equipped with Skinlock, ready for a climbing skin to be attached in an instant for climbing. For this ski, we recommend a 58mm X-Skin in nylon for wet and steep terrain or a narrower mohair skin (45mm) for cold temperatures and flat terrain.
Helge Ingstad, once Governor of Greenland and Svalbard, was known as a trapper, polar hero, and scientist. He published several best-sellers about hunting in Canada, Greenland and Svalbard. Through this work he contributed to the creation to the heroic representations of the hunter’s adventurous life. Ingstad was also a researcher with a particular interest in the history and ethnography of the Arctic who contributed to our knowledge of the cultures of polar societies and the Norse settlements of North America.
Choosing the right length
Ski length is determined according to body weight and height. The table below is only a guide, however – experience, skill, terrain and individual needs can all influence your choice of length.
Generally speaking, moving through rugged terrain calls for shorter skis than the open mountain plateau. And for beginners, short skis are easier to control. If you’re mainly skiing along tracks, length isn’t the most crucial factor. For good float on deep snow, a slighter wider ski is useful. Lighter skiers might consider a shorter ski; heavier skiers a longer ski. Skiers with loads such as backpacks and sledges might consider a longer ski.
