Trip planned to Nagano for the end of the month! Been my dream for years.
I'm planning on skiing 50/50 Resort/Backcountry
Therefore I need a true powder ski / touring setup.
(I currently only have a 1-ski Colorado quiver)
My buddy has a pair of new 178 DPS Wailer RP2 Tour1's he's willing to sell me for cheap.
These skis look amazing, especially for Japow. Light skis for some light pow, amirite?
I'm 5'9" - 160lbs
As far as touring setup... Would I be crazy to throw some Alpine Bindings (Marker Griffon 13) on these "touring" skis and use some Daymakers with them? I don't own any AT Boots / AT Bindings... Therefore the only thing I'd be purchasing would be the skis themselves and the Daymakers.
Whatdy'all think? Crazy or naw?
