  1. Touring for turns ski for the alps. Mantra V-Works or BMT90?

    Iíve skied a ton of different skis in a ton of different conditions. We moved to Europe over the summer. I could bring just about any ski from my testing and reviewing days that I wanted. For this...

    Drag (esp powder) and weight imo is the drawback. But on midwinter tours I was often on 150g bindings and 1100g boots, so it tends to matter a bit more for that kind of setup. About the only wider...

    The Atomic Hawx and Backland are both shorter (internally) at the same mondo size than the Cochise and old ZeroG molds. Iím pretty sure the Lange XT or whatever they call it now is also shorter.

    Do these boots run longer like the Cochise and old ZeroG series? If so, sizing up the liner makes good sense.

    I think my main hesitation here is the price and the black topsheet, which is just silly on a fatter superlight ski. Black effectively = heavier in some environments.
