Life was a junior eastern racer, done the PSIA full cert or level 111, certified level2 USA coach, blah,blah, etc,etc and now just your everyday skier getting out as often as possible - not often enough 40 to 50 a year. Up till last year the only skis we ( the wife and I ) rode were WC slaloms. In fact our quiver were all different versions of the same hard core race boards. We have done Austria, Whistler and some out west. Last year after getting an invite to Big sky we picked up bonifieds for me and sambas for her? LOVE THEM. Skied everything there was there except the couloire -didn't know you needed to bring avalanche gear ! Sure on eastern bullet proof we will pull the SL's back out but the switch has been made.
Here's the question
Just got off the phone from booking a day of heli skiing with powder birds and they are suggesting using their 120 under foot salomon 2s. Anyone here at EPIC using a similar 98 - 100 underfoot / mid fat outback in untracked Utah?
Some of my reading uncovered CMH going back to mid fats for " people who's technique is 20 to 30 years old" . I'm pretty sure they were heli skiing even before mid fats- yes? Not wanting to drop out the door of the heli on the day of a lifetime on skis I've never turned before.
Thoughts and comments appreciated
