Hey guys, I've been enjoying my first touring season with 2015 Candide 3.0 (112mm waist) and Marker Barons, and although they're great on the way down and super fun in powder, they are obviously not as great on the way up.
I will keep them for deeper days/short sidecountry pow hunting, but now that I've tasted the joys of touring I want a shorter, lighter, straight-ish/flat-ish tail ski as my "everyday" touring option for next season.
Going up is (for now) just a mean to have more fun on the way down and I don't do multiple days hut trips yet, so I'm looking for something fun yet stable on the way down, but not necessarily super ultra light (lets say around 1500g per ski would be nice). Bindings will probably be the new Salomon/Atomic Shift, as they seem to be the best compromise between tech and alpine.
My touring boots are the Hawx Ultra XTD, I'm 6' and 155lbs and ski in the Alps (France and Switzerland).
The big question is what skis to get? So far I've narrowed it down to the 179 Line Sick Day Tourist (for a wider option) and the new 177 Atomic Backland 95 (as I can get either for a really good price), but I'm open to anything in between and any advice will be appreciated!
