I accidentally bid on these thinking they were the wider Rainers. I have a pair of Alpina trackers which are narrower I use for groomers and flatter backccountry and a new pair of Alpina Woodies that I got for $50. How do these Sierras compare to the Alpina Woodies? IS there room in my Quiver or are these slis similiar. Do they do anything better than each other?

I use NNN-Bc for tamer stuff last 2-3 years after getting intoXC /BC skiing. I have a chance now for more remote touring to a place with good elevation and serious runs. I also want to dio the catamount and wasn;t sure the NNN bc would be suitable. So I lucked into these bindings and picked up unused Rossignol BC X-11 3 pin boots unused for less than $100. My thoughts were to have a more rugged set up than my NNn quiver for toruing in and taking some turns or for hut to hut with a pack and wanted to saver my knees and kind of keep it on the lighter end and learn to telemark. I just need to figure out a ski to use. I have a chance to pick up an unused pair of Karhu 10th Mountain Skis for $175. Thought they would strike a good balance fio lightness good turning and tracking for kick and glide. I also have a chance to pick a pair of Atomic Rainer for $225. Am I on the right track? will these work for what I need? Also considered Rossignol bc 90 and 125's can only get 90's fordecent $.

use a System set upo for lighter conditions and out the back door but wanted a little sturdier and heavier set up for more remote extreme backcountry. I want as much of a do it all ski. I so far picked up Rossignol BC X-11 unused for $100 and have found Voille CRB with breaks for $90. I know want a back country ski that will work well with what I have so far. I hear my binding with risers sometimes will stiffen certain skis so I am turning to this place for help. I'm considering the Light Terrain set up for touring 7-10 miles in taking a few turns down a glade and touring out. Some times they go father in and stay then ski out next morning. Is this a good ski for the equipment I have? I am also considering the X terrain and the Atomic Rainer, Rossignol BC 90 and BC 125, Fischer S98 or 112 and the Karhus. I would like to be able to ski and track as well as turn .May use these for hut to hut and Catamount trail too. Any advice?
