stinky_peteehh depends on what you want. Opus probably would be the lightest out of those 3 so for longer tours that would be the best option i'd say, but it doesn't sound like you'll be doing long tours. I've heard the yle is a really fun pow jibbing ski in pow, same with the bentchetler. I am a little biased though because i ride 4frnt devastators and love them, 4frnt has great durability but they are kinda heavier so i dunno if you'd like them because you don't weigh a whole lot. i'd say the opus for you
FunkyDunkyMonkeyThanks. Yeah my problem is that I don't know how much time I'll have for touring. A friend of mine has a pair of YLE's he's going to let me check out. I'd definitely get Opuses or Bent Chettlers but I can get the YLE's for over $400 less than the other two.
Banane.Well if you are considering touring whit some Opus, bent or YLE the chance are that the little extra won't mind you
Which binding gonna go on them? And how much touring?
I have Opus 185 and baron's for slack and inbound now, was my only ski in Revy three season ago and won't take these guys for anything else them resort or small slack now
Opus are nice, but I find them too soft some time and way to heavy for any tour longer then 3hours
Banane.98% inbound? Get some trecker, there a new version coming out. I hate skiing inbound on my baron, sure the height of the guardian is smaller but still they are not light
FunkyDunkyMonkeyThanks for the advice. My biggest problem is that I'm just not really sure how much time I'll spend touring so I just want to have all my bases covered in case I end up doing day tours every weekend or if I ski Big Sky for the whole season.
