ski review

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
thinking of purchasing monster 78's and putting a marker baron binding on them to do some touring. I ski about 30 days a year (mostly in the east) I'm 6-2 and 195 lbs. I would be doing 90% of my skiing on the front side and would like a ski that can do alittle of everything. Any advice would be helpful.

The Monster 78 is a great ski! if you live in the east, it could be all you need. If you are thinking of the Baron, you must be going off trail a lot. I would consider the Monster 82. It still holds well on ice, but will give you the float you want if it gets deeper.

check out dawgcatching's review of both skis. IIRC, he states that they ski quite differently, with the edge going to the 78. I bought them primarily based off of his recommendation, and love thm. Very damp ski. I think it's a great one ski quiver, especially for the east.
