I'm a better snowboarder than skier and the skiers were having all the fun off piste. This board makes it possible to enjoy the same off piste skiing easier. The system is super simple to set up and after a while it really doesn't take you that much more time to set up. Just make sure your paying attention and you don't set the bindings in tour mode backwards. The super wide platforms for the skins is all so awesome at going straight up stuff others can't. Performs well and love touring on it.
