I am new to Telemarking and new to backcountry...
I am new to Telemarking and new to backcountry skiing, but really would like to upgrade my setup. I have some decade old super thin K2 skis with Chili bindings that I don't mind, but the skis are too damn thin for any amount of powder. I will mostly be using them in the backcountry, but really don't know enough about skis. These are the right price, but I don't mind waiting and shopping a bit. Also, I'm 6'2" and 215 pounds. Any recs? Thanks!
These look like solid performers for what you want to do, but I'd go a step wider personally. I have the Amperage (115 under foot), and I am happy with them other than going through the crud. The Zealot from BD sounds like a solid choice to me as it is a bit wider, similar in weight (so light), but do everything. If you were to go outside the BD line, I'd suggest something like the 4FRNT EHP as they charge through everything, but they are a bit heavier. Good luck!
