Which ski to tour on in my quiver? Line Supernatural 115 186 or Icelantic Nomad RKR 191?
I got a pair of marker barons that will go on either the line Supernatural 115 186 or the icelantic nomad rkr 191. My original thinking was to use the supernaturals as my powder/touring skis and use the nomads as my everyday ski but after doing some more thinking the lines seem too wide and heavy and I am thinking of putting barons on the nomads. I will likely not do a ton of touring this season but am trying to get out once a week or so on 1-2hr tours around Bozeman. What do you all think? Tough choice since I am afraid that if I mount the nomads with the touring setup, the line's will pretty much just collect dust.
Depends on what you're trying to tour. If you want to get some quick laps, and not necessarily looking for pow, I'd go with the Nomads. If you're only gonna tour for powder laps, I guess I'd throw them on the Supernatural's, but at well over 2000 grams per ski that's gonna be a brutally heavy setup. I would probably put them on the nomads and you'll have a more versatile setup in case you want to do longer tours in the future.
Like the poster above said the Lines are a really heavy ski. They wouldn't be my primary choice of ski to tour on, but I tend to do longer tours and value a lightweight setup.
