Recycling Alpine ski as AT gear

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm building an AT set up on the cheap. Ive been given a pair of Garmount Squadra 4-buckle boots that fits well. I also purchased the Black Diamond Riva Z Compression Telemark Ski Binding for $37.50.

I’m planning to convert an old alpine powder ski to telemark duty. Is this a good idea? I own a pair of 2001 Salomon Super-mountain (110-78-100mm) in a 186cm and a 2003 Rossignol Cobra X (106-68-96mm) in a 181cm length. Which is better? :

I’m planning on resort based day trips. I’d like to cross the Wasatch Range, going from one resort to another, one day.

I’m a 210 Lbs, 6’ alpine skier with some cross country experience.

Any suggestions would be great.


Edited for terminology

So you're talking Telemark, not AT then?

I'd go for the Salomons if the two pairs are in the same condition.
That decision is based on the dimensions. It's still a pretty skinny ski, but it will be fine to learn how to tele on.
