Seek and ye shall find.

Ah, you seek adventure, my son? Indeed, the lure of excitement has seduced many, though few who undertake such quests return. 'Tis a frozen wasteland into which you venture, full of deep pow, steep lines, and big drops. I see you carry a weapon: the Icelantic Seeker Ski. It looks to be a fine blade. Will it be enough to see your safe return?

Indeed it will, sir. The Seeker is equipped with everything I need to excel in this forbidden big-mountain zone—an early-rise tip ensures that I shall easily slay all soft and variable snow, while the flat tail, wide platform, and traditional camber underfoot allow me to stomp enormous cliffs and outrace all vile beasts who dare pursue me. Indeed, the Seeker loves speed above all else. It is quite stiff and has only a small amount of sidecut, truly coming to life when allowed to run and make large-radius turns, and a sintered Durasurf 4001 base allows speeds that even a villainous dragon cannot match. For such a formidable weapon, it is durable and light, courtesy of sandwich construction and a core made from the finest poplar wood. And as you can see, the artwork is worthy of a truly legendary big-mountain blade. It is on the Seeker that I shall seek, and win, my powder fortune.

Here's what others have to say...

I have these boards unmounted and want to set them up as an AT rig. I am not sure what bindings I should be looking at. I intend to take them up big peaks in Colorado and Wyoming. I play hard and seek out big rocks to drop off, so something that can take a beating is a must. However, weight is also a concern, since 14ers are in the question. What are a few options that might fit this bill? I am not a big guy, 5'8", 150lb, I tend to keep my dins around 8-10, so a high tension binding isn't necessary.

Thanks!

The real trouble here is durability. With an all around AT setup you have to decide what works best for you. I have Salomon Guardian 16's on mine and am about 10 lbs lighter than you. These work great and I know they will last skiing fast and dropping big cliffs. Though I only run a 12 or 13 din its good to not max the bindings out like on my Marker Baron that is on my Keepers. The baron after 3 years shows no stress cracks and is a slightly lighter weight alternative to the Guardian. The Marker tour has some durability issues when it comes to hitting bigger cliffs, but is two lbs lighter than the Guardian.

Aside from frame AT bindings Dynafit TLT Radical FT's are on my Vanguards. These are super light and great to tour on. They can take bigger hits, but I've had some release issues from ski flex. The seeker is a stiffer ski and would make this less of an issue. Conversely the Seekers stiffness profile combined with tech binding will make skiing firm snow much more teeth chattering. If you don't mind throwing your weight around the TLT Radical FT could be a great option to save some weight.

If you are hitting anything over 40ft I'd go Guardian.

Thanks Ryan,

This was very helpful. I opted for Tour F12s (seemingly against your advice) to save weight on the touring side. The biggest things I hit this last season were in the 20-25 ft range, so I think I have a few years yet till I will really need something as burly as the Guardians/Barons, based on your review and from talking to the guys up at Powder7. Next season I will be bidding for a few ski descents for sure.

I must say, I am impressed with your quiver of Icelantic boads. I am a big fan so far.

Best,
Ajax

Soft snow vs hard snow skiing makes a huge difference. Super excited that your setup is working great! Icelantic is a great company

What are the recommended bindings to go with this ski?

Andrew, for a resort ski I would put the Rossignol FKS 140 or 180 depending on the type of skier you are. Give me a shout and lets put a setup together.

Definitely the FKS or Pivots if you are a resort skier. Personally a huge fan of the 18 due to the all metal construction. They last forever.

I have a set of Salomon Guardians on mine and couldn't be happier. Turns these into a burly do everything touring setup.
