Hey all,

I bought a new atomic ski with bindings for my trip to Mont Tremblant in a couple of days and I am a bit worried about the din setting. I am 240 lbs and like 6'1 and I would say an expert skier very aggressive and I go fast and ski everywhere, trail, moguls, off trail, glades. I am not a perfect skier but very good. They asked if I was a type I type II or type III skier so I put type III. I go to pick them up and the din setting is at 9. I asked why it was so high and they said you put type III skier which is like heli-skier, ski down cliffs and stuff you see in those Warren Miller movies which I am obviously NOT.

Now my question, is 9 too high? I never set up binding so I am not sure and I forgot what my old skis were at since I got rid of them last year. I just want to be safe so I am asking.

Any help would be great.

Thanks
