Not a bad idea, but I'd be more likely to to go mogul challenge for dessert. Regardless, I'm NEVER taking anything over 90 waist on a multi day trip if I can only take one pair. I'd ALWAYS rather ski bottomless on an 80 something than ski hardpack or bumps on a 95+
100% agree with this statement. I know a lot of people here dis all-mountain skis, but they are serviceable for me in up to a foot of snow. The AC30 that I demoed last year handled trees, bumps, crud, and moderate powder without any problems. My regular skis, Big Trouble with a 92 mm waist was absolutely skittish in the connectors and groomed which was fairly icy last year. (The edges are probably due for sharpening)
You can always rent a wider ski if you need it. Besides there are a lot more hotties in the groomers, so you absolutely have to look good with your skiing.
The ability to slide off the binding for transport is a big plus.
