I’ve been lurking around here for some time now. I really appreciate the level of knowledge and the commitment you guys have to skiing.
I have for some time now carefully read what is written here about so-called one-quiver skis. I have after due consideration decided that the DPS Wailer 112RP Pure will be my next ski, and ordered them today.
The next big question now is what kind of bindings should I mount on the Wailers. I guess that at least 60-70% of the time on these skis will be resort/resort powder skiing. But I will also do some touring/BC. A platform binding is therefore not an option.
I have ordered D-fit Beast for my Wailers, but it is still time to make changes if I getting convincing arguments to look at other options.
Furthermore, I was ready to buy the new Scarpa Freedom SL, but was persuaded in the store to carefully consider D-fit Vulcan instead. I will therefore try both boots, but will welcome any advice if there are any of you who have special thoughts on this.
As mentioned earlier, 60-70% resort (powder) skiing, but when I do touring/BC, I will be sure I have the lightest and most functional equipment along with me. As you may have realized, I am not very concerned about what this will cost. I'll have the best equipment on the marked – period!
Some inputs about myself:
1 Live and skis most of the time in Norway, one or two trips to the Alps each year
2 Prefer steep SC/BC, but I’m happy as long as it is fairly soft conditions
3 Skis 50-60 days each year – at least
4 I’m an advanced skier - 45 years old and been skiing for 44 years
5 175cm (5’7) and 85kg (187) – I’m a strong guy :-)
I appreciate all inputs!
