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. Our interest 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…..
So here are our mountain packages. They are not exclusive to the
mountains – I use this setup for general use – but this set up has proven the best for aggressive skiers and learning skiers alike in a world that has some downhill mixed in or is full on downhill focused.
What the Packages include:
– 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 $342.65 (with the Tiak shipping cost). Package price is $299.00
– Add the Alpina Alaska boots
Normal non package price would be $592.64 (with Tiak shipping cost). Package price is $524.25
– Add the Scott Excursion Boots
Normal non package price would be $642.65 (with Tiak shipping cost). Package price is $574.25
All package prices includes shipping – we waive the normal $8 dollar oversized box charge for the Tiaks in this package.
