Not all days are for structured workouts on groomed trails--sometimes you just want to throw on your old leather boots, fill a mug with some hot soup, and head out on an adventure. Whether you have all day or you're squeezing in some time in the woods before a busy day, grab the Alpina Control 64 Edge Ski when you're packing up the car and you'll be set for whatever kind of conditions come your way. Whether you're on trail or off, lightness is key for your Nordic setup, and the Control delivers. With a lively wood core and versatile 52mm waist width, the Control 64 glides through fresh snow with similar stability to its wider touring siblings, but it can take off on hardpack or the occasional groomer, too. Alpina's early rise profile helps with tips that float, rather than dive into, fluffy ungroomed snow. Metal edges with a traditional sidecut work to grab onto the snow when you need them to, and the BC Grip bases hang on during long climbs and glide once you reach the backside descent.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
