East Coast "back country" ski options

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Looking for something to mount a set of King Pins on. Not super concerned about weight.. most of my touring is day trips around Mt Washington (nh) Currently have a set of Vokl Nautaq's with dynafits, K2 Backlashs with dynafits a  local boutique  ski with Barrons. The boots to drive them.. Dynafit Mercurys with Krypton race tongues, Garmont Radiums , K2 Pinnacle 130's.. I prefer a shorter turning ski, but it's need to have some edge, since we get a lot of frozen crud .  My lift serve rig of choice here in New England .. Salomon Xpro 130's on a set of Stokli Stormrider 95's... 52, 5'10 ,220 .. in reasonably good shape.. don't huck, or get much air.. one junk knee

 

Have been looking at a pair of Gotma's, or the Atomic automatic 109's, or the Blizzard Cochise  

 

 

What do you guys suggest

I think you have too much gear.  Sell something and replace it with what you want.

well thank you for that very helpful bit of advice .. I am surprised that you are able to channel my g-friend though :rotflmao:

Have you looked at the Worth Magics?  They fall somewhere in the mix of the skis you mentioned (Auto, Cochise).  Probably nearly as good as Autos in pow, better than the Cochise, but more than capable in firm and variable.  Easy to pivot.  Just not going to charge as hard as the Cochise, but not many skis do.  That's what I tour on and I'm in the east as well.

 

Another ski that looks like it could fit the bill (though I haven't tried it yet) is the ON3P Wrenegade 102.  Shorter radius than the wider, old Wrenegade.  Looks like it could be a great variable conditions tool for nh whites, chargable, but still very much powder capable.  Probably won't ski powder like the Autos though.

Look at G3 skis.

Thanks.. I've got a set of Georges, and I'm pretty sure I bought the g-friend a set of the Magic's , with custom top skins.. Maybe I'll try hers out..

I think I'm looking for something with more ice hold than the Georges.

I'm giving the carbon zenoxides a look .. used to have a set of Tonics that I absolutely hated.. so I'm a little shy of G3's

Nice, my g/f is on the Magics as well.  We should've gone with custom top sheets, the purple tops are snow magnets.

 

I'd love to get more time on the Georges.  I liked both those and the Mega Georges when I tried them.

here's my Georges...

 

Her Magics were done with that "eat more Kale" theme Jason had going at the time

 

Here magics are over to the right, near the K2's
