WoFlowzAnything under 100 is pussy shit
FlynnskiIm starting to build a quiver and need some recommendations. Ive decided I'm going to get some wets as a park dedicated ski and am looking for an all mountain and maybe touring ski. I'm on the east coast and ski pretty aggressively and am in the woods a lot. I also usually take a trip out west once a season so would want it to be able to hold its own out there. I really liked how the Jeffrey 96 skied but want something a bit wider for more versatilty. I was looking at the Jeffrey 102 and wildcat 101. Unsure if I want to mount shifts, kingpins, or get some attacks and daymakers. Any suggestions on skis, whether to go wider or not, and what bindings to get would be greatly appreciated.
TheWeazThe wildcat 101 performs surprisingly well in soft snow for being pretty narrow. I’d definitely consider it for skiing every day back in vermont.
as for bindings, that depends if you have or plan on getting boots with tech fittings. If you have the ability to run something like cast or the duke PT I would choose those two over the shift. If you don’t have tech fittings daymakers will work with whatever bindings you like.
FlynnskiHow does the wildcat handle on ice and hardpack?
I have boots with tech fittings I’m just not sure how much I will actually be touring so I don’t want to sacrifice downhill performance. Would it be bad to have kingpins on a daily driver?
