    Cant say yet as the atris and the nocta are new additions for this season. Hoping that combo with shifts works out and can use them when traveling, touring, resort and sled skiing. Howd you like the 185 Noctas?

    Ahh, I just noticed you mounted Shifts on both. I'm doing the same on my new 190 Noctas. I really like the 185's (got to use them a ton last March), but as they are progressively mounted I just wanted a little more ski in front of my boot. If I wasn't heading to Japan in January I probably wouldn't have bothered, but that just seems like such a perfect setup for Hokkaido.

    The Quiver Pic Rerun Thread

    Skier: 57, 160 lbs, 60+ days, with season passes at Mt Baker and Whistler.

    Often leave 2-3 skis at Whistler (were there every weekend) and keep another 1-2 pairs in rocket box for midweek Baker days. Hence the overlap.

    Boots: Dalbello Krypton 130s (2 pairs) and Dalbello Lupo 120s for bc.

    2018/19 quiver......5 skis:

    Pictured above:

    182cm Moment PBJ + Jesters (@ -5) - daily driver, no new snow, fast ripping on groomers

    181cm Icelantic Nomad 105 + Dukes (@ -5.5) - daily driver, 105 waist good for sidecountry, my do everything ski, minimal 2mm camber is awesome

    181cm Icelantic Nomad 115 +Jesters (@ -6) - pow at Whistler, a bit of camber for steep sketchy entrances on pow days, may throw Dukes on these

    181cm Moment Meridian 117 + Jesters (@ -5.5) - these replaced my 4FRNT Renegades, fast/fun rockered for fast, smeary, riding on the pow

    Pictured below:

    181cm 4FRNT InThaynes + Jesters (@ -5.5) - rockered but not so wide as the Meridians for porpoisy skiing in the pow

    L > R
    168cm Kstle BMX 118 2013 for the wife

    189cm Down CD 114L 2018 going to replace the slot the MTN Labs are going to leave and may be 50% inbound days as well.

    184cm G3 Tonic 2009? everyday tourer and last couple of years dds more often than not.

    184cm Salomon MTN Lab 2016 selling them

    190cm Down CD 3 Carbon 2014 selling them. Got them to replace the XXLs. Best ski in the line up for sidecountry, just for the times it gets chopped up/hard I never felt as comfortable on them as with the XXLs. Just couldn't get the tails to behave as I really wanted to on hard snow

    194cm Down CD 1 Carbon 2014 Wardens were the dumbest idea ever. Awesome for the couple of deep days per season, but they are the heaviest skis in this line-up. I never lugged them up a mountain once

    194cm Dynastar Legend XXL 2008 DDs until last 2 seasons, when back problems meant I needed something lighter. When the back feels up to it, I still grab them before all others

    198cm Salomon X-Wing Labs 2008 I looked so hard for this ski, found it used 2010. I love it, take it out once a season. Quite slarvy in everything but piste. Getting back to the lifts, it only goes straight. Even though its got more side cut than the XXLs, if you put it on edge, it just carries on going straight. Only difference is Im lopsided going straight.

    200cm Forktree Skis FrankenQuaddump 2010ish? Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking. Only used it 3 times. Wanted a Big Dump with M1111 Fishtail and all in 200cm please

    186cm Line Prophets 100 2006 Sentimental value

    206cm Dynastar G9 Coupe haven't got a clue, were given to me from the shop as they were going in the bin. Needed something for longboard days.

    I really wanted to like the MTN Labs, but they ski too short. Look at the binding mount compared to the g3 tonics (same length). For someone lighter they'd be great, but as soon as its above ankle I sink like a submarine. In anything other than that they were great. Light but stiff enough to deal with most chopped up conditions and had a confidence inspiring edge hold, I never noticed the width. I'd have to remount so far back that it'd fuck with the geometry. And i fucking hate the beasts...

    Here's my quiver. 6' 0", 28 years old, ski mostly at Alta, occasional tours, like to charge, learning to get spinny, no flippy.

    4FRNT Renegade 186cm - 1st generation - Marker Dukes: Deep powder, country club days at Alta, never tour on these any more

    Blizzard Rustler 11s 188cm - Look Pivot 18s: Soft snow, feeling tricky

    Blizzard Cochise 185cm - Marker Griffon demo bindings: soft snow, wind buff, feeling sendy

    Volkl Mantra 184cm - Maker Jesters: hard snow, feeling tricky, groomer ripping

    4FRNT Raven 184cm - 1st generation - Dynafit Speed Radicals: touring

    The Quiver Pic Rerun Thread

    Finally got around to posting a quiver pic!

    Super happy with my skis right now. First picture is my work/resort skis, not including beat-up-to-fuck Hoji and Supernatural 108 rock skis, and second is my touring set ups.

    Boots are Vulcans sans tongue and boosters with pro tour, and Lupo TI with pro tongue.

    184 Salomon X-Drive 88 w/STH2 for when its firm out. Cracking ski, like a narrower (stiffer?) Mantra.

    184 Katana w/shifts for soft days and sidecountry tours. Such a versatile ski that I feel makes me ski better than I should, in 90% of conditions.

    190 Lotus 120 hybrid w/STH2 @+1 for deep. Had the 120 for years then sold it and replaced with several other pow skis over the years-Prior A-Star, the new shape Bodacious, Spur and finally the Billy goat and none compared to the 120. I had the opportunity to buy back my old 120s late last season so mounted them back up! Awesome ski for when its deep and wide open but the full low rocker of the Katana really makes them float comparably and more manageable in tight trees. Who makes a 120+mm katana/lotus love child?

    186 BMT 109 w/Alpinist 13. Main touring ski, only got a few weeks ago so only had one day out so far. Mounted @ -1.

    176 BMT 94 w/modified Radical for flat ramp and no brakes while keeping 12RV. Long tours or when I need to keep up with someone fit. Only weigh 50g more than the 109 set up so maybe wont get skied as much now?

    Madshus skate skis. Got these as a boot/ski/pole package from a mate with a hookup for crazy cheep. Went to the local XC ski place for my first attempt at skate skiing and looked at the TV in the lobby that was showing the XC ski World Cup. Come podium time some Norwegian was standing up there with the same skis as me....Kinda embarrassing! All the gear and no idea much?

    Quite the range in sizes for one person for alpine bindings?

    I like all my skis consistent in the 181-182cm range (Im 57).

    Why the large gap 178cm-190cm?

    Great ski choices btw.
