One Ski Quiver for neophyte AT skier?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey All!

 

I was a snowboarder turned skier two years ago and made the switch so I could get start backcountry skiing. Consequently, I held off on buying skis until I felt comfortable enough to just get a backcountry setup.

 

That said, I still plan on spending a lot of time at resorts having a blast.

 

I'm 19 years old, 150lbs and 5'10" and will be planning on going hard at the resorts but also spending a fair amount of time in the backcountry (probably every weekend will be either in the backcountry or at the resort 50/50 split) mostly on the East Coast in the Adirondaks or at Whiteface but I also live on the west coast and spend a fair amount of time skiing in Utah and Colorado. 

 

I comfortably ski blacks at Park City and so consider myself an alright skier, not an expert but definitely fairly advanced. 

 

It's a lot to ask of a single setup but I'm a poor college student so I'm trying to make due for now. Is there anyway I can get one setup that will allow me to have a blast at the resorts but also hit the backcountry slopes and have fun? I was thinking maybe dynafit speed radicals on some black diamond skis? How hard can I go on the dynafits?

 

Thanks everyone!

Look at the Voile Vector.  Sweet light ski for AT and I use mine around the resort too.
