So I'm finally deciding to pull the trigger and get myself a tour setup for this upcoming season. I'm going with either the 13/14 Jeffrey or the 13/14 BG. I'm 5'10'' 155 lbs and I'll be doing my skiing in and around Tahoe and I fully plan on using the setup in alpine mode at Squaw/Alpine Meadows. I want to know what would be better in the crud and chop a day or two after a good storm but still be able to hold its own in the backcountry.
The 14/15 winter will be my fifth year skiing and I consider myself an above average skier and I'm confident all over the mtn but I know I still have ares to improve upon.
I know there is a tour model for the BG and thats kinda what I've been leaning towards but I just want to hear some thoughts from you guys. Are there any skiing differences between the BG and its tour model? I know the weight difference but does that effect the way it skis or its durability?
Still not sure what I'm going to grab for bindings so any suggestions on those will be appreciated as well.
