What skis with over 100 cm underfoot should I get?
Im looking to get some skis towards the end of this season that I will be putting touring bindings on and be using for skinning but also resort skiing. I want a ski that has at least a 100 cm underfoot that will be used for a lot for powder skiing but I still want something that is pretty solid at high speeds on hard pack as well. Ive been looking towards the line prophet 100 but I think I could go with something a little bigger and maybe a slight rocker. Suggestions?
not really. the rocker assists with the glide while skinning, as there is less resistance. Additionally, there is no loss of surface area while skinning, when you shift you weight onto your ski, it sinks in. The only problem would be with hard snow or ice, but in those situations you should be utilizing crampons anyways
