Salomon x race 170
Kastle BMX 108
I've owned Dynastar Legend 8000 and K2 Apache Chief and the K2 XP which was a similar ski to the Recon.
Of course I expect this post to attract 'other' suggestions but I was hoping for a comparison between the two skis from someone who has skied them.
The idea is to find a 90 something ski which is light enough to skin up 500 - 1000 but NOT skittish. I climb to ski!!
My playground is the Dolomites in Italy where we can access huge amounts of backcountry using lifts and a small hike or we can make day tours far away from the lifts.
Looking forward to hearing some advice.
