Hi, names Milko, 24 years old.
Found quite a lot of info in the forums and now decided to get some more personalized advice from you guys!
Here's some info about me:
I've been skiing since very young and quite often,
but the last 4-5 only 7-14 days per year mostly groomers and occasionally sidecountry.
Have good technique on the Red runs when I got things under control,
I do ski Blacks from time to time but definitely not in style.
On Piste - Intermediate to Advanced
Freeride - Beginner
Touring - No experience
Style: Generally crude, Carve and some parallel. Prefer Mid to long turns.
Places: Mostly Bulgarian mountains, occasionally Alps; Innsbruck, Seefeld.
I'm looking to do some more Sidecountry along with some light Touring to get to the Backcountry,
but I'd still like to be able to rip some groomers. I'd say it's 60-40 groomed/ungroomed, but that of course may vary
from full groomers-only resort to 2-3 days touring side-back country.
So, my question is, what would be a good one quiver ski + bindings to do the job?
So far I've been looking into skis like:
Rossignol Rev 85, Experiance 88
...and so on, pretty much everything with slight rocker between 80-95 waist, that is
There are some many models it's quite difficult to choose having no experience in those particular styles.
Which ski would do all that and do it well enough? Doesn't need to be curent model, I'll hit the outlets as soon as I can.
Bindings...I think I know what I need - Diamir Fristchi Freerider Pro.
However, I have the slight concern that although Marker Baron are heavier and and generally a pain for touring (as far as opinions on the net go),
they might be the better options as they are more on-piste oriented? Dynafits are out of the question for more serious grooms, right?
That's it I think, if you guys can point me in the right direction it would be quite helpful!
I'll post another lovely rant once I narrow the choices down.
