Topic - Thinking about new touring skis...

Dave Kerr - on 14 Aug 2013
Toying with the idea of new touring skis this year. Mainly due to the fact that as my confidence and ability have grown my skiing goals have changed from touring to more ski mountaineering and steep backcountry stuff.

I currently have K2 Waybacks which given their dimensions are superb in soft snow but not so hot in harder stuff. I realise now that this is partly due to the large amount of tip rocker they have giving a shorter effective edge.

As I have other skis best suited to powder and lift accessed stuff I'd like something no fatter than the Waybacks, of a similar weight that has better hard snow performance.

I'm not an agressive skier so I don't need something burly.

The one model already on my radar was the Trab Ripido.

Any other suggestions?
