Hey, Bears!


Looking for your advice on one-ski for off-piste skiing on the West Coast and Alps. This will be the skis I will take on my trips - so I need just one pair which is off-piste biased.


The skis should be very versatile capable of skiing tough off-piste conditions including crud and crust. Should be good in powder as well.


The big thing here is the skier profile. I am decent on piste but a novice off-piste skier. I dont' huck off of cliffs, don't charge. Prefer short to medium turns and moderate speeds, descents in a controlled manner.


Looking forward to your opinions and suggestions.


PS: I am personally looking at fischer Watea 106 and K2 Annex 108 or may be Backdrop. What you say?
