Sidecountry - Short tour set up

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

I've been trying to build up a little short tour / side country set-up. After collecting and assessing my gear I'm not quite sure how I want put it together. Hoping to collect some thoughts from the crew here.

 

Here's what I have available for this project...

 

2014 Gotoma's with Marker Baron EFP 194 cm

 

2013 Salomon Rocker 2's with Marker Griffon schizo 192 cm

2013 Rossi Super 7 188 cm

Fritschi Freeride Pro bindings

 

I skied the Goats for a day, like them but think I'd be happier with a bit more forward mount. So, maybe a remount is required?

 

Been skiing the Rocker 2's for a few years, like them but I was surprised by the actual weight. They feel lighter than they are to me. Griffons are fixed so I'd need to swap to the Freeride's or Barons?

 

Never skied the Super 7's, I picked them up for dirt cheap just to get more practice at substantial base repair and try them out.

 

Initially I thought that I'd put Griffons on the Super 7's, Fritschi's on the Rockers and maybe just sell the Gotama / Baron set-up. Mentally I keep circling back to Gotama / Fritschi set-up. Not sure why?

 

I realize that none of the options great for true b/c but right now myself and my family are just kicking around trying the B/C thing out.  If it works out I'll likely change up as required next year but setting 4 people up for B/C - AV gear and training has killed the budget this year :).

 

I'm 6'2', 205lbs, advanced skier. B/C will be mostly east side of the rockies but willing to travel!

 

 

Thanks, Roco

Reality is mostly on the east side of the Rockies. Banff area but I do get into the Purcells a bit too.
