I live in Europe and I have used different GS Atomic skis for almost 15 years. I am 6' and 175lbs intermediate skier.
Last season I rented the BBR 8.9 186cm and loved them, not only I was able to do some off-piste, but I also felt less tired than with the GS at the end of the day. They are really enjoyable to ride and easy to carve on any kind of snow I found (though I couldn't try them on hard ice).
Later on the same season I also tried ski touring for the first time. The skis I rented were heavy and short, and the bindings were bulky and plastic-made, but for some reason I absolutely loved this sport.
Now, the thing is that I would like to buy something to replace my Atomic GS's that would be suitable for 50% piste - 30% free-ride - 20% ski touring. A while ago I was given a pair of Salomon BBR 8.9 flat. After checking tons of web pages and forums I've come up with a set consisting of the BBR's, the G3 Onyx bindings (I think Salomon Guardian or Marker Duke would make the set too heavy) and a pair of boots like the Tecnica Cochise/Pro Light or the Scarpa Maestrale/RS.
Now, what would you think of this set? Will it be too heavy? Are the G3 Onyx good for resort skiing?
