drawing up a short list of skis suitable for my introduction into touring and backcountry skiing , and after loads of searches and reading , these three are my top picks. I am looking for a ski that has the right weight stats for touring , but also has the capability of being used for a every day in resort ski as well , to this end i am thinking of mounting them with a dual quiver killer set up of marker jester / dynafit , or just marker baron , haven't finalised this yet as the options for bindings seems endless
for this and next season i am only looking at one day tours and short skins to access stuff from the lifts and maybe an overnighter.
i am 165cm tall and weigh in at 73kg (5'6" & 160lbs) and ski in an adventurous style , at medium speeds .
at present i ski kastle mx88 168 in resort and down the sides, and mx108 177 off piste and in the powder , which this year has been plenty in euro land. so the plan is to replace the 88's with one of the above ,as i dont really want to have more than two pairs to cover all my needs.
would really appreciate any thoughts , good and bad on my choices
