Your best bet for a "utility ski" is one of the new wide patterned skis - Voile vector bc, rosignol bc 125, madshus annum, etc. Pair them with plastic 2 buckle at or telemark boots and light bindings. The traditional "Nordic backcountry" skis just aren't very suitable for our climate because they aren't wide enough to offer decent floatation.
