    Missed this. Is there some accounting talk forum elsewhere on the web, where you're asking for advice that applies to an intermediate-advanced tax filer?
    that's all i can think of, but i'm sure there's something else...

Stop buying equipment and GO SKI.

    The gear whores here are an exception, stop reading the internet. Most people I know have one or two pairs of skis and they learn to ski them in all conditions. You know why? Because conditions change from top to bottom of the mountain, from run to run and throughout the day. Learn to ski, not go change skis.
    I sold 2 skis and set aside the money for soft snow oriented skis. Buying them won't prevent me from going out west. Right now the only thing preventing me from going out west is a more snowstorm packed 7 day forecast, and giving my knee (which feels much better) a little more time to rest, to be more sure it was just telling me 3 days straight was too much when it swelled up last week.

    And skiing the east? Not tomorrow, I was offered OT at work. Maybe I'll go up north after work tomorrow if this current storm will patch up the damage from warm and rain the last few weeks.

    You guys gonna keep fucking with me or do you want to help me choose between Salomon QST 106 skis or Atomic Backland FR 109 skis? I'm buying one, I've done a lot of reading, but it would be nice to get even more input before deciding on one.

    It's probably pretty damn close to a coin flip but maybe not.

    You don't need a wider ski. Both of the skis you have are fine for out west, especially current conditions. If you like the Nordica NRGY 100 that much, just ski it, especially when things get bumped out and choppy. If it happens to snow more than 2 feet while out west, and you will be skiing 2+ feet of fresh powder off piste, then demo or rent a fatter ski for the day.

    FFS man even on my non color corrected screen those Salomon's are orange. After a lot of reading which I haven't done there is no way I'd even consider them. Those atomics are partly red though, I've seen them. Definitely red. Although the brown parts are not red in case that bothers you. It doesn't really bother me but then again I've got some red skis with a bit of blue on them and I like them.

    If you want to know which skis are red and blue I'd be happy to let you know but I'm concerned that might just confuse you and make you want to buy some red and blue ones.
    But that would be a bad idea and completely unnecessy because those new red and blue skis would just sit around and depreciate because you don't ski enough to make it worth buying them.

    TLDR. Flip a coin, either of them will be perfect for what you're looking for which as best as I can tell is wasting money on new skis you don't need, probably don't have the ability to benefit from and certainly don't frequently encounter the conditions that would warrant owning them.

    But then again everyone told you that back in 2016 in this thread and probably before that in the other one so I don't understand why we're still engaging in this other than it is kind of amusing.
    But them again you're probably just trolling in which case I applause your persistence and joke is on us.

    As long as the majority of you are dicks I guess I'll keep doing what I can to make the joke on you. But it didn't have to be that way.

    Iím starting to think there is something seriously wrong here. The lure of the red ones is so strong I think it would be difficult to resist for this long. I really wonder if M Jong might just be color blind??
    ma4149 ó you ever been tested??

    YOU DONT NEED NEW FUCKING SKIS!!!!!!!

    If you like the nordicas ski the fucking shit out of them. 100mm is enough for anything you are likely to find on your trips out west. Most of us have something in the 100-110 range as our every day skis. Youíre not gonna get 7 days of epic pow every day so donít fucking sweat it.

    If you really want to spend some money then get either. They are probably both great skis that will ski pretty much the exact same as your Nordicas so it doesnít matter what you get, just donít waste all morning trying to decide which pair to step into.

    I skied 40cm deep today on 97mm mythics and had a blast. I have rustler 11s and protests in the quiver. Neither would have made today any more fun.
    Just go and ski ffs.

    Donít know why I bother, but...

    Donít bring any skis to Utah and just demo some. Then buy what you liked. Boom. Rocket science.

    Oh. And have you read the article that wider skis in hardpack fucks up your knees. Mostly due to gapers buying to wide of skis, using shitty form and desperately trying to find days to justify their way to wide skis? Or something like that.

    Have youíve gone to a doctor yet? Figured out propose PT for you fucked up knee?

    Or you just trolling there too? Are you that fucking bored with your real life?

    I can't remember the right terms/equations from Stat, but is there like a 95% true inverse relationship between disposable income and skiing skill? Or ability to use the internet? Or being a fucking moron? Talk about rising to the level of your own incompetence.
    Someone do me a Pearson's r on that.

    Whatever, got the Backland 109’s with Salomon Warden MNC 13 bindings, just because I wanted to. Had the money from skis that you fuckers talked me into selling for being too short. Wasn’t overly convinced that they were too short but they were a little redundant.

    You might be able to tell me that I don’t need more skis but you can’t tell me that I got the wrong skis in the wrong length. These will be sweet!

    They just so happen to be red!

    This shit is too funny.

    so you sold skis that you liked because some ass holes youíve never met on an Internet forum told you to. Now you bought new skis that youíve never skied and that those same ass holes told you not to buy but youíre convinced that they are the greatest thing ever?

    Your skiing should be rad now!

    sell the backland 109s - wrong ski
    keep the bindings; you can use those

    this, however, is available & just the thing for you (& available in almost-man length)
