I'm a bit of a park rat from a small hill in Ontario, but have started taking more trips to bigger mountains out west. I have an interest in touring and wondering what or where I should be looking to buy this stuff.
So far I'm leaning towards the ARV 116, however a friend of mine strongly recommends Black Crows Anima 115. I was also thinking Faction CT 3 or 4, but I've heard that they aren't the most durable ski although they are light and might be good for touring.
Been riding on full tilts for quite a while and have been thinking of trying out the First Chair 10's, but I'm open to try out another boot. I hear Dalbello and Lange make some nice boots as well.
For touring bindings so far I've seen either Marker Barons, or Dukes.
I'm used to Head Frame Walls in the park but don't mind trying out something different like the arv's.
And of course I know I should look for places to buy or rent avy gear. Not sure where though.
Any thoughts or recommendations? Also I'm around 5ft 10-ish and weigh somewhere in between 170-180lbs.
