Absolutely, the split skin will be better. With a ski that wide, you have got plenty of glue to keep the skins stuck on the ski bases. It makes a difference when you are on top of the that windy ridge trying to rip the skins off. Also it lightens up the skin quite a bit and makes it more packable, which makes a difference with something this wide.

Skip the pack cover that will get ripped or blown off, and try watering proofing your gear inside. Line your sleeping bag compression sack with a trashbag. Same with your clothes bag. Pots, tent, and food don't need to be waterproof. It works. Try safeway brand trash compactor bags. They kept my gear dry mtneering and sea kayaking in patagonia for three months.

I use this for everything from one day side-country trips, to multiday winter trips. It is definitely too big to use as a dedicated inbounds or even side country pack. But if you are only going to have one ski pack, this is a good one. Better to size up for long trips, then over stuff a 30L pack. Plus this pack cinches down real well.

These are the best socks ever made. No joke. I lived in three pairs of these socks for three months in patagonia. They went through the ringer. Wet and dry, not being washed for a month at a time. And they are still thick, warm, elastic, and green! You can't feel the toe seam at all.
Also the company stands by their product. I had one pair loose its insulation under the instep, leaving just the elastic support, and they sent me a a new pair no questions asked.
Buy a few pairs, you won't regret it.
