I have these skis mounted hammerheads and they are straight-lining, cliff-dropping, chop-busting skis. The huge size takes a little getting used to and I ended up crossing them a few times at high speeds until I got used to them, but the early rise and wide tip gives them incredible float and the ability to stomp through chop exceptionally well. Even though they are so big they do well on-piste as long as your willing to give them the speed they deserve. As a backcountry setup they aren't super light, but aren't super heavy either (they are lighter than my 168 Nomads). Definately need a super stiff binding to be able to control them, hammerheads are a must.

I am looking into getting a bigger pow ski than my 168 Nomads with BD O1's. I'm debating over the EP pros or the Salomon Czars, both would be mounted with a hammerhead. Anybody skiied either of the skis as a tele setup? I'm curious if the EP pros will be a bit too soft, and where to mount them. I'm 6'1" and 140 lbs. and want a nice playful pow tele-ski.

These pants are nice and lightweight with zero insulation. But they keep you dry. Wearing some thermals underneath make them perfect for cold days, and the side and inseam vents are sweet for super hot days. My only complaint is that they run really long. For sig fit pants they sure are baggy. As long as you have your boots on they are fine, but once you take them off they are draggin on the ground, even with the little tab to hold them up.
