 KARHU INTRODUCES 10TH MOUNTAIN SKIS;
 A JOINT PROMOTION WITH COLORADO'S 10TH MOUNTAIN HUT SYSTEM
 BURLINGTON, Vt., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspired by the kind of skiing found along Colorado's 10th Mountain Hut System, Karhu has entered into a joint effort with the 10th Mountain Association to develop a new line of 10th Mountain skis.
 For today's skier Hut to Hut touring is the peak experience in the backcountry. Located in the heart of the Rockies, the huts are perched high on mountain ridges with magnificent views and they offer skiers a cozy shelter after a day out on the trail or touring powder-filled bowls. Within a day's tour of each other, the 17 hut system has opened up authentic outdoor adventure to the widest range of skiers.
 "For many, the 10th Mountain is their opportunity to experience the freedom and joys found only in the backcountry," explains Steve Gladstone, marketing manager for Karhu. "It is skiing the way it was meant to be: unspoiled and free. It is a true alternative to the crowds and hype found at most ski areas."
 Interest in the 10th Mountain Hut System has exploded. According to Peter Looram, executive director of the Hut Association, the number of skiers using the system has grown to 40,000.
 Karhu's 10th Mountain Skis are the right tools for the skiing found on the trail. Specifically designed for backcountry performance, they were developed in collaboration with mountain professionals who guide on the 10th Mountain System.
 The 10th Mountain Guide is the professional's choice," explains Gladstone. "A ski designed for real backcountry versatility. It flourishes in powder, crust, slab and crud -- the full back country spectrum. The Air Channeled Wood Core is incredibly responsive edge-to- edge. With a wide shovel and plenty of sidecut it floats over powder and loose crud. In effect, it comprises a full quiver of skis one."
 "The 10th Mountain Tour is another Karhu first: a backcountry hybrid that brings the waxless touring advantage to a full-blown telemark ski," continues Gladstone. The proven Kinetic Waxless Base offers sure-footed grip without having to hassle with climbing skins or kick wax. Its soft, single camber and even Longitudinal Flex and means the ski is easy to turn and control. It's the most user-friendly, no-hassle ski around. Guaranteed to turn a tourer into a back country enthusiast.
 "Working with the 10th Mountain Hut Association has been a real joy," says Gladstone. "We are honored that they wanted to work with us on this project. As part of the program we have agreed to donate a portion of the funds generated by the sale of the skis to support the Hut Association. We believe in what they are doing and want to support their efforts."
