This year my fiancé and I are taking our avalanche safety and plan to try touring. Rather than renting equipment for 8 days for $400 I'm thinking about buying a touring set-up. But I don't really know what I'm looking for.
Im guessing that we will tour on short trips (3-4 hours max). My cardio is not great so I doubt we'll do 8 hour trips.
Being that I don't know how much touring we will do (frequency of trips) I'm looking at a used set-up. So here's the million dollar question. If you were me would you buy this used set-up for $500?
08/09 movement iki
Fritschi freeride plus binding
the iki is 117-80-105
My concern is that the dimensions seem a bit small. But maybe they seem small because new skiis keep getting bigger and bigger!
Im 5'5" 135 lbs
I ski blues with ease and most blacks without too much difficulty (but it can be ugly!).
Currently ski nemesis in 169 and atomic Balanze 159. Also have armada arvw 165 but not skiied it yet.
