I found a good deal on 176 Atomic Bent Chetler 120 (18/19). I'm 5’7 and 145 lbs and usually ski 181 Nomad 105s (with regular bindings) all around the mountain.
I do like the Nomads but they do feel pretty heavy sometimes and I would like to get something a little wider for powder and some touring. Atomics would be wider and alot lighter. I have park skiing background so I think Atomics would be fun but I would also like them to handle some speed. I'm worried they are too short since I'm used to 181s and they would be mostly for powder.
I'm mostly using lifts and will do only pretty short tours so downhill performance is more important to me than uphill. I'm only going to get one pair of touring bindings right now so I'm wondering if I should get the Atomics for that or switch bindings on my Nomads.
