Help my lady friend find a touring set up
What's up NS! My close friend is looking for a new pair of skis for the season and I told her I'd help her look around for options.
She's looking for something around 170-175 with AT frame bindings so she can still get rad in the backcountry without having to invest in a new pair of boots too. She doesn't give a shit if they're mens or womens skis as long as they shred.
Shoot me anything you might have and I'll send it her way.
Just my advice, more than a pair of skis, I would be looking for a touring boot that has a walk/ski mode because it would be a bitch to uphill in alpine boots (you can do it, but it gets old quick). As for skis, you could pretty much get away with any old pair of beaters and that would get you out just fine.
