FYI Nordic BC skis (like the ones johngenx linked to) usually quote the width at the tip (the widest part), whereas AT & telemark skis typically quote the width at the wait of the ski (the narrowest part).
True! Those BC65s are about 50mm underfoot. The reason they use the shovel width is for track set. A 65 just fits tracks. Just.

I use:

90% - AT skis
5% - BC X-C skis
5% - snowshoes

For backcountry winter travel.
