Hi there! Looking for AM skis to fill the gap between my park and powder skis.
Park skis im planning to replace btw. But will use shiro for powder days.
What I want - skis for every day, playful and fun!
But also I want to try ski touring so expecting to add hybrid/platform bindings to the setup.
Google says that 108 wide underfoot is something that should stick with but im open for any advice.
Expecting to use skis for 60% - resort and backcountry + 20% going on half/one day ski tour trips, potentially I want to go to the Mt Rainer with my friends but they use very light ski touring setup and im not sure if will able to go as fast as they do. Is this still possible with my expectation?
Also im planning to find new boots with help of bootfitter but would good to have some advice on boot too. I have wide feed so 102-104mm sole should work for me
195lb/88kg (15% of fat haha)
Location: Seattle, WA (Most of the time I go Alpental or Stevans sometimes Crystal )
What I have:
2013 Volkl Shiro 193
- good on powder
- can cut crash small bombs without issue
- hard to find good powder without going uphill
- sometimes I want to just have fun and do not charge all the time
2014 rossignol storm 180
- I have second pair of skis
- I think they are too short
- not playful\stiff flex
Some models that I think of:
black crows atris
2021 Armada JJ (I know its 116 but its only $400 used with bindings)
