Sometimes cross country skiing is more about getting away from it all and enjoying being outside, rather than dealing with the pressures of racing or the extreme nature of exploring off-the-trail backcountry. Wider than Alpina's racing skis and narrower than its backcountry skis, the Control 64 Touring Ski is ideal for Nordic skiers who are out to enjoy long days on the trail for pleasure or fitness. The aptly named Control provides a wide range of skiers, from beginners to advanced recreational, the easy-gliding stability and control they desire.The Control 64 features an ultralight wood core for supple, fluid, and easy flex, which means that you won't have to fight the ski to get optimal performance. At 52mm underfoot, the Control offers a wide, stable platform without being bulky or cumbersome. An embossed waxless base allows the ski to glide freely while still maintaining balanced control. Unlike Alpina's backcountry models, the Control doesn't have metal edges to cut down on weight. A polyethylene topsheet adds a layer of tough durability for many years of use.

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.
