Heading to Telluride shortly for ~ 5 days of skiing. I have never been there, so I'm unfamiliar with the terrain and the snow. Forecast calls for limited new snow during my time there with at most 1-2" of fresh snow on 1 or 2 days and partly sunny/cloudy the rest of the period.
My quiver is limited to 184 cm Legend Pro 105 (orange/white w/ woody sidewalls), 183 cm iM82, and an old pair of 178 cm Legend 8000. I could buy a double ski bag just for this trip and take the Pro's along with one of the others, but that seems like alot of spur of the moment expense just to bring two pairs. If I had something between the widths of the 105's and the iM82's, I'd probably take those....but I don't.
So, any recommendations based on familiarity with the snow and terrain? I will be skiing mostly blacks, 182 lbs butt-naked, 6'1"and while I would like to think of myself as an expert, advanced age and fear of broken bones would probably push me into the advanced/expert slot. :-)
One other consideration - If I do buy a new pair of daily drivers in the next couple of months - it would probably be something between the 82 and 105 mm widths. The Legend 8000 are definitely not a pure ice ski, but nicely sharpened, they do take care of the hard snow days well enough in the PNW. I am thinking that perhaps taking the Pro's as my single ski and if conditions arise that I need a narrower ski, I would demo. I know that is kind of opposite of the usual recommendations, ie. demo wide skis if you have a dump....but since I know no real dumps are forecast at least through next Monday, I might be OK.
I would welcome in particular suggestions from those that have that model of Legend Pro's and also familiar with Telluride.
