Gear Question for Chaos

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
First off, thanks for helping me with my other question. Now I have one more. I have a friend who is a level 10 skier (former racer) and is looking to get new skies. He really doesn't know much about gear, so he wanted me to ask you what type of skies and bindings he should get?

He can ski anything trees, bumps, steeps cliffs and doing perfect GS turns. He is looking for some serious skies for the upcoming season here in the Mid-Atlantic.

Please help.

Well, he's a former racer so he's going to demand something that he can really push, a ski with super solid construction, something stiff that will hold up at high speeds. But also something that is agile enough to whip through the trees, jump turn on the steeps and float in the powder. He doesn't need the twin tip which is good because twin tips sacrifice tip-to-tail edge contact.

He needs to get the Salomon Tornado ti. That's what I use for my do-it-all ski.

Why would he want new skies? Blue not good enough for him? I suppose I could go for some white skies right now myself.

I'm not sure if he cares about the color that much, but he may want something that matches his Karbon jacket though. I will ask. Good tip thanks!!

I have some Vist and Jesters here. If it was a hard snow specific ski, carver or race ski. Vist w/ speedlocks. For something wider, I would choose the Jester. I like the Jester a lot, for a high DIN binding, it is very light.
