Then I found some used Silvretta 404s. This would allow you to clip your Spantiks in and scoot. If all you want to do is ski-hike, don't spend more than that.
If you want to make beautiful turns, you will be disappointed. But for pulling a sled on Denali, it will work fine. To make great turns, you will want boots for skiing, whether that ends up being AT or tele. And better bindings. And then you might get fussy about the skis.
If you really get in to skiing, you'll end up with multiple sets.But the cheapo approach skis will still be in your quiver.
