Replying to Center Mount Touring Skis?
This is strictly a touring setup. I have a separate setup for park/resort.
I feel way more comfortable riding center mounted skis, being able to pivot and turn on a dime with equal swing weight on the front/back.
I just bought the JJ ultralights, I've got kingpins to mount on em. I'm tempted to put em dead center. I'm just not sure how this would effect my kickturns etc. on the uphill.
Maybe there are other factors that should be considered since it's purely a touring setup?
For context: I live/ski on the west coast in BC. I like doing butters, popping off everything in sight, drops, glades, maybe the odd couloir here and there, and also love going out and building jumps to hike and hit all day. I love doing 180s so yes I will be riding switch on them, but I don't want to make my life difficult on the uphill/other aspects of riding JUST so I can ski switch on a center mount...
Thanks for thoughts/advice! :) :)
