From now til next winter I am slowly going to put together a touring set up. I have a good idea where to start but need some advice. To start with I am on the east coast, majority of touring will be at the local cross country area which has some gnarly terrain glades etc., that area also leads into 2 of the local resorts here which I will be able to tour to then ski down and possibly rip some more laps so heres my questions.
1. Skis thinking something like the Bentchetler 100 or 120
2. Bindings I was thinking Shifts due to downhill performance and being able to take laps at the resort. Also maybe the new marker? But seems like the Shift has it figured out.
3. Boots I have no clue where to start with these. I'm in Full Tilt FC10s right now which obviously wont work for touring.
4.Anything else major I am forgetting
