My Skiing

Light touch, enjoy skinning up and out as much as the skiing down. Kneeologist warned me to knock off high impact activities so my resort skiing will be limited.

On the descent, the skis are quiet on wind impacted surfaces, carve easily when put on edge and float well in light snow. It is an easy ski to turn in all conditions and I would recommend this ski to anyone looking for a wider ski.
Thanks Teddy. I pulled the trigger on the 171's. I have a pair of Travers CS's.
I am thinking about these to compliment a pair of 176 cm Hannibal 96's Skimo put me on in 2018. The 96's do everything well however, every once in a while I get into lower angle with heavier, deeper snow and wonder if the 106's would have made skiing it easier. Or maybe I should learn to ski?

The sensation I get when comparing this boot (Carbon Cuff) to my Travers Carbon's (now the backup boot) is, when skiing the Hannibal 96's, the skis feel much wider, float even better and controlling and maintaining speed is a simpler task. When on the Travers 90 Carbons, and the cuff is snugged up more so than when skiing the Hannibal's, the skis float pretty dang well in deep snow, bust through crud and hold an edge on very firm surfaces. Am I nuts or am I just learning how to ski? I hope It's learning ...
Thanks for recommending these for my narrower pair of touring skis. The Free Pro 2.0 have the same great grip and glide of S-Glides but pack much smaller.
