I am 217 and strong skier. As anyone knows form skiing in France, the top can be icy then empty out into incredible powder but once you drop onto the Glacier, it gets tight and icy again. I am considering buying these skis but am curios about pulling a binding especially in a no fall situation. Is this really an issue? I am not going to drop $800.00 for a ski that I am worried about killing myself or having to ski one ski down a mountain.

Long time passed since the Q. I'm 230 skiing the 182s with no problems whatsoever. It is my choice for deep soft snow backcountry, but I prefer my Manaslus fore variable winter snow and Snowwolfs for spring and summer firmer snows.
