So I had a great deal on K2 and a pretty good deal on 4FRNT and when I went to order the skis I wanted, the Marksman and the Raven were both sold out in my size. I was surprised, but I am not here to complain about the lack of inventory.
So I ski both at Stowe and at various side/backcountry areas in northern NE. I am 5'10" (179-186cm for ski length). 24 years old. 165 lbs. I ski powerfully on challenging and varied terrain and I need a ski that will perform in crud and fresh snow. (level III). I will be mounting them with a dynafit touring binding and mostly using them as a touring ski and from time to time at the resort. We can leave budget out of it for now. I want rocker tip and tail and some camber underfoot (yes I know the Raven is flat under foot). 102-107 underfoot. Twin tips. And something that can handle speed marginally well or better.
I am looking at the ARV 106, in 180cm, but I would like some other ideas.
