Hi Conor, for mountaineering objectives generally the shorter of two applicable sizes is better. Better for maneuverability, skiing, bootpacking, scrambling, hop turning...all the things necessary for mountaineering. In addition, with a light boot like the Alien a shorter ski will have more control without overpowering the boot.

Hi Teal, you will have to remove the toe piece to install the crampon adaptor but the kit comes with all the parts you will need.

Hi Anthony, I would say that the flex and performance of the Alp Tracks 84 is definitely more forgiving than the Balance. I don't think you could go wrong with this ski, especially for the weight vs the Ultra Vector.

Hi Will, you can likely make the 100mm brake work, but the standard advice has you going with the 110mm.
