Topic - Scott skis for touring: Mission or Crusair?

chris bedford - on 18 Apr 2012
Looking for some new skis for Alpine hut-to-hut touring for the wife. Have browsed all the UKC postings and looked around on t'internet, and have come down to one of the above (partly as there seem to be some really good end of season offers on these at the moment). She currently uses Salomon B2's with Fritschi bindings which have seen good service over the past few years, but feel it's time to move on. She's an experienced but not a super-confident, fast or aggressive skier, though can cope with a wide variety of snow conditions, weight about 65kg.... Occasional piste use (mainly for working on technique), not too concerned about hauling things uphill, but would like something which copes well with the descents - so not a light 'touring ski' (but will most likely get some sort of dynafits for the new planks.)
The Missions seem to get a good press on UKC, but the Alpine Guides website raves about the (more expensive) Crusair. Only concern about the latter is the 'all the gear - no idea' kind of thing.
Anyway, if anyone is feeling bored and would like to help sway us one way or t'other, would be very grateful.
