The Super Guide 95 is one of Scott's first products built specifically for backcountry touring and they nailed it. These skis provide a reliable, solid, and enjoyable ride. We've noticed this pattern before: when a dedicated ski company dedicates effort to developing a touring ski, the result is usually good.
