I am looking at buying new skis largely for powder trips to Japan and Utah, but still want versatility and a ski that will see me through a few seasons and some touring. (edit I already have a carver so this is secondary concern but still important, yes oximoron I know)
Firstly I am looking at the Line influence 105, I want to have this ready for when i arrive Utah so no time to demo, but I like reveiws and manufacturers definition of the ski, can anyone out there give this a thumbs up and maybe explain why? other recomendations. Whos a good contact in UTAH to deal with (Edit Salt lake city, Ogden areas)
Secondly, I was thinking about putting Marker Duke bindings on it, will I loose much performance in alpine skiing with these?
any better recomendations for Alpine/touring combinations?
Personal specs, 46, height 180cm weight 95kg. piste advanced intermendiate (20 years one week warrior), off piste beginner/intermediate only really just starting to push into this area with one trip to Japan completed Feb2011 and frequency and length of ski trip on increase. Any other info needed pls ask?
