La Sportiva Skorpius Ski Touring Boot

The Skorpius from La Sportiva is an uphill oriented boot for general ski touring or the occasional randonee race. Weighing in at an even 1000 grams (size 27), and boasting an exceptional 68 degrees of cuff articulation, this boot will have the vertical feet melting away on the uphill. It is designed after the popular women's Solar boot, but with a reinforced carbon cuff for added stiffness. The shell is made from carbon reinforced Grilamid which not only boasts an impressive strength to weight ratio, but keeps its progressive flex even in cold temperatures. Forward lean is adjustable to three positions to further dial in the ski performance, and the Swing Lock Closure System makes transitions simple and efficient. Sportiva included their Skorpius CR Liner which is comparable to the Pro Flex Evo from Intuition. All in all, the Skorpius is another addition to the lightweight and versatile 'ski-mountaineering' quiver that has seen so much growth in recent years. 

Is renting right for you?

Rentals are a great way to lower the cost for your first time trying the sport and narrowing down what you are looking for. We rent both super light fitness setups for resort uphilling as well as all mountain skis better for backcountry and soft snow.

There are a few limitations of renting. Most importantly the demands on your feet for walking uphill in a hard plastic require a level of boot fitting and customization that is impossible to get in rental boot. This could set you up for some discomfort. There are too many models of skis out there to try them all, so demoing to buy has become impossible. In the end, once you are hooked for the sport, working with our backcountry experts will be the most efficient and least expensive way to get dialed in the perfect setup for you.
