Liv BC

Perfect for rough terrain and long distances

New

Developed in close collaboration with Liv Arnesen, the first woman to reach the South Pole solo without support or supplies, the Liv BC ski is the perfect choice for long winter hikes with a backpack or sled in tow.

With its prominent wax pocket for lasting grip, and equipped with Skinlock for the instant attachment of the short X-Skin when climbing, this ski is a superb choice for women planning expeditions or longer hikes.

Although narrow enough to fit in groomed tracks, it’s designed and constructed to handle challenging conditions outside the tracks.

Liv Arnesen is a veteran of many expeditions and extreme ski tours. Before her solo expedition to the South Pole, she and Julie Maske were the first women to cross the Greenland ice without support. With Ann Bancroft, she was one of the first women to cross Antarctica on skis. Liv has spent much time on Svalbard as a guide and tour leader; today, she lectures and is a sought-after speaker on the subject of motivation, mastery and management.

 

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.

Body Length Weight (kg) Ski length
145-155 cm – 55 170
155-165 55-65 175
165-170 60-70 180
170-175 70-80 187
175-185 75-85 194
