tele ski questions

I'm a snowboarder who has been tele skiing at alta for the last 3 seasons. I want to upgrade my atomic boards. i would like to venture out into the BC on my skis this year but I will still do at least 70% of my sking inbounds.

what do you think is a better set up? last years salomon pocket rockets with G3 bindings or the Karhu Jak with same?


there is no emoticon for what i am feeling!!

The Jaks are really soft- fine if you're only riding midseason backcountry but I wouldn't recommend them on hardpack. THe Pocket rockets are a little more versatile, so they're worth a look. Depending on your size / weight, I would recommend the Rossi T4, which has a stiffer tail than most widebodies. I think it's a great one-ski quiver filler-it'll hold an edge on the hardpack but you won't notice any dive in the deep stuff & it destroys the crud. The dims are 122-94-112, the fatter side of mid-fat but not quite the girth of the Jaks. I've also tried the Atomic TM:EX, and that's a really nice mid-fat as well.

Hear it was supposed to snow 5" in the high country tonight. Oh Yes.
