Would you recommend going with the K2 Hardside or K2 Coomback if I want to have an all-mountain ski that I will use 50% in resort and 50% in the backcountry? With either ski I plan to mount a Dynafit Radical ST and will use a Scarpa Maestrale or Garmont Radium boot. I ski mostly in the WA Cascades and tend to only ski at the resort/sidecountry on good fresh powder days and otherwise ski the backcountry. I am 6'-2", 175 lbs and ski agressively.

Should I go with 181 or 188 Coombacks? I am 6'-2" and 175 lbs. and I ski agressively mostly in WA Cascades. I plan to use the Coomback as an all-mountain setup for 50% resort / 50% backcountry. Tend to only ski at the resort/sidecountry on good fresh powder days and otherwise ski backcountry. I currently ski a 185 Atomic Snoop Daddy ski with traditional camber and have never felt like I wanted this ski to be longer, but at times have thought it would be nice to have a shorter ski when skiing tight trees and constrictions in the backcountry. Any thoughts/input is appreciated.

Should I go with the 180s or 190s in this ski? I am 6'-2" and 175lbs and an agressive AT skier. Plan to use this ski as ~60% resort/sidecountry and 40% day touring ski. I am currently skiing on a 185 Atomic Snoop Daddy traditional ski (no camber) and in the backcountry I sometimes feel I could benefit from a slight shorter ski for negotiating trees and tight spots.

I'm interesting in using this axe to climb alpine routes like N Ridge of Baker and N Face Shuksan and I'm 6'-2" tall.
1. What length shaft would you recommend for an axe with a hammer?
2. Would you recommend getting the same length Venom w/Adze or would it be just a good to use the 58cm Grivel Air Tech Racing axe I currently own for a second axe on these climbs?
