The best all Mtn touring ski?
So I need a new pair of touring skis. A little background info, I am 5 10 155lbs and ski the north west, specifically Montana Idaho and Washington. I want an all Mtn ski I can tour with for quick side country and short backcountry climbs. My only preference is that the ski be a FULL TWIN I still wanna be able to ride switch. Whatever ski I get I will be mounting with saloman guardians. I prefer a ski between 100 and 112 in the waist. As always helpfull answers get ++ k
i have the same ski in mind for next season. im thinking either SFB or libertyy helix
I am leaning towards the liberty helix, but I wanna see what other people thought
Sfb's have a good amount of camber underfoot so that's a good option. Maybe on3p jefferys, atomic blogs, and k2 must have a ski that fits you description.
I was looking for the same thing and had narrowed my list down to the Liberty Helix and 4frnt Turbo.
I went with the Turbo because I found a pair on SAC for cheap. FWIW, I'm 5'11/190lbs, and I ski Kicking Horse. Skis are mounted with Dukes at -1, and I ski them with Tecnica Agent BC120s and Cochise.
opuses or bacons. pretty light for the size
Skins might be a pain in the ass with a full twin tip. Just look at the jeffrey and BG tour
i put skins on my hellbents with no problems
All times are Eastern (-5)
