I just bought some Atomic Access 181's and put dynafit bindings on them. I have skined with them a couple times and skied them in area a couple times. Our snow blows right now and is super hard packed. The ski skis great on the hard pack even though it is designed for the powder.

I was worried the 181 was not going to be enough ski. I am 6' 200lbs.

The ski- binding combo is super light but good enough for the area. I was also hitting the small table top in the park with no problem.

Depends how fat you want to go; how much you will be in the bc or in bounds (wight of the skis for touring); and what kind of terrain you will be on (ski mountaineering vs powder hounding). G3 makes very nice skis that tour very well. the infidels are very sweet for "thinner" skis, 97 under foot. personally I really like my k2 obsethed for in and out of bounds. k2 also makes some non twin tips for ski touring. fat-ypus makes some nice super fat skis. My advise if you are going with AT set up, go demo as many different skis as you can.

I second the DPS Wailer 112RP. Me 6'2" 105lbs and ski the 190 cm.
Funniest ski I've ever had. Also have the lotus 120 for the super deep days. Really just extra fluff because the wailers can handle just about anything.
