Can anyone advise.... I just bought a pair of 195cms Armada AK JJs. They came fitted with Tyrolia 18s. I normally, ski with my Griffons or Dukes set at 8 or 9 on my line prophets or my Scott missions. Next week I am going to Japan. Should I set them higher for the powder? I don't want to lose a ski, but nor do I want to injure my knees, nor do I want to be struggling to get my skis back on. What are the issues to consider?
When you answer all the questions about setting the release value for your binding, none ask if you are skiing powder or hard pack. I don't think the binding cares about the snow; just what they are holding on to. Bindings should be set based on the skier and skier ability.
