Pow/ Touring ski reccomendation?
Yo, I'm looking for some pow/ touring sticks since the mountain I'm at now has real powder. I'm looking for something that can float in pow, carve somewhat hard, and possibly do some butters. I'm not super picky on what I'm looking for but I would like something that is pretty durable.
If I was looking for a freestyle touring ski the Candide 3.0 would be my first look
The armada jj is the way to go. If you run pins get some kingpins for bindings as well
i just bought the armada tracer 108 in a 180 for touring. My mains concerns were weight/ flex and rocker camber profile. Its stiffer then the arv line but not nearly as burly as the invictus. I prefer skis with a good amount of camber underfoot and substantial tip rocker and slight tail rocker. The jury is still out on the tracer but it looks like everything I want in a touring/ freeride ski. What mountains are you riding? Different ski shapes work better in certain soft snow conditions vs others.
