Hey Hey all!
This is going to be my first season back country touring in the Rocky Mountains/ Colorado. I had a few questions in regards to selecting a ski width. I saw a forum which focused more on length, so if I missed another thread, please point me in the right direction!
Little about myself. I'm 5'8, 165-170lbs. Ski everything in the resorts no problem, extreme terrain to grubbing groomers, so I'm really open to all sorts of skis. I currently ride Line SFB's as my daily ski (love em), and the K2 Side Seth's for those tasty powder days.
With jumping into back country touring this upcoming season, and understanding that 90% is up hill, I have a feeling something around the width of my bacon's is ideal, making it not too taxing to climb, but still perform in all conditions (106-108mm underfoot, can't remember the exact measurements). Correct me if I'm wrong on my mentality behind this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks!
