Hok Mountain PackagesFrom:
We have put the Hok Mountain Package together based on our rather unexpected use (and pleasure) of the Hok for more mountain and downhill skiing. This peaked on a backcountry hut trip in British Columbia where a bunch of us went out the last day with Hoks and about 16 inches of new cold snow. There was a lot of shorter terrain near the lodge that we were restricted to because of time, so the Hoks made sense as the turnaround was so quick. We all used Tiaks, the single poles used by skiers in the Altai mountains and used by all skiers (yes, all) before the 20th century. The Tiaks give the rather short Hoks excellent fore/aft stability, something short skis generally lack. Turning and skiing was effortless and SO MUCH FUN…..What the Package includes:
– The Hok ski, either in the 125cm or the 145cm length.
– Our Voile HD 3pin binding with all screws and custom heel pieces to fit the threaded inserts in the Hoks (no drill mounting).
– A Tiak (single pole) either Medium (6ft.) or Large (7 ft.).
Normal price for this combination would be $378.45(with the Tiak shipping cost). Package price is $339.96
– Add the Alpina Montana boots
Normal non package price would be $573.40 (with Tiak shipping cost). Package price is $519.95
– Add the Alpina Alaska boots
Normal non package price would be $678.40 (with Tiak shipping cost). Package price is $610.23
– Add the Alico Boots
Normal non package price would be $593.40 (with Tiak shipping cost). Package price is $529.98
– Add the Scarpa T4 Boots
Normal non package price would be $817.45 (with Tiak shipping cost). Package price is $749.95
All package prices includes shipping – we waive the normal $8 dollar oversized box charge for the Tiaks in this package.

Scarpa T4 Boots$439.00
Scarpa introduced the T4 a few years ago and it caught our attention immediately for its light weight and tour friendly design. I bought a pair for my girlfriend Lisa, and she loved the fit and feel right out of the box. I had a chance to test them last year as well, and found them light (for an all plastic boot) and comfortable to ski and tour in. Downhill control with the 145 Hoks was more then enough and in testing the T4 with our new ski, the Kōm, it seemed a near perfect fit. Francois and I went back and forth on the pros and cons of carrying boots (lots of sizes…)and decided it was such a good match for the Kōm, as well as for the more adventurous Hok users, we would go for it.
