    Modern structure + other wise "old schoolish" deep snow touring skis?

    Would like to get pair of new touring skis for deep snow. Is there any skis around 120mm waist and tip rocker+camber+flat tail or just little bit of tail rocker? Directional mounting point would be good.

    Skis I use now and like

    183cm Scott punisher 110 mounted alpine
    184cm Head monster 108 mounted alpine
    183cm Black crows Corvus fb + atk freerider 14 2.0 (these are the best skis ever, just need more width for those specific days)

    Any skis for these specs or am I doomed to get some modern sliding around skis? I prefer to make turns and not slide around.

    How about the Moment Commander 124 in 184? Or why not Line Pescado 180?

    Moments are pretty much out of game since I would need to order them from states. It will be too expensive after +24% tax. Pescados maybe, that is interesting ski. Just that I'm 105kg in boxers so maybe I fold them in half?

    get down with down skis maybe?
    Or get some older skis, DPS L120 seems to be what you are looking for. Love mine (Pure3 Spoon version, can not talk about other versions) mounted 1cm back.

    Downs are 114mm at widest? Great company and skis, but need bit wider.

    Dps 120 would be good, but hard to find. Couple of years ago there was 120 at 180cm on sale for 200e at Tromso. Didn't buy it, I think I deserve kick to my balls for that...

    Those might be one option too. Would like to get +120mm waist, but there isn't that many options.

    Verrrry light, on the expensive side of really expensive, but otherwise ticks your boxes.

    I wish there was a bigger market for 120+ skis, but you could still consider the regular CD114 in a 196 or the 114 LTD 189. Very stable, yet float well for a 114. LTD is heavier/stiffer/damper than the regular construction, but both should work well at your weight.

    Friend of mine designed those Moonlights, would be great ski but definately out of my budget

    Other friend has those normal down 114, probably need to try those. Need to look into that Ltd version. I had cd3 back in the day which was nice ski!

    The dynastar protos are traditional-ish and pretty light.

    Head Kore 117s, light and quite burly in the 189 length. Very traditional mount point.

    I'm about your size just for reference. I think you would like Lhasa Fats if you could find them. I've never had the fats but did have 196 and 191 lhasa pows. Great skis for big guys who want to go somewhere when they turn and not just skid their way down the hill. Designed just like you detailed. Never been on them but a Head Kore 117 might be another to look into as well as the DPS 124's, Fischer Ranger 115 or 122?

    Huh. For some reason I was thinking they were lighter than that. No metal, etc.

    Nevermind then.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    The Elan Boomerang fits those criteria. 120mm, 180 or 190 long, camber underfoot, and low-profile rockered tips and tails.
    Mntlion has a pair mounted with Kingpins.

    Good Fucking Lord!
    I'm a slut and all, but $13,000 skis?

    Agreed with others that mentioned old Lotus 120 or Lhasa Pow / Lhasa Pow Fat.

    Check out the BMT 122, pretty sweet ski for pow touring - this from a confirmed L-120 fan.

    Price is quoted in NOK (Norwegian Kroner). Equals to about $1500. Still way, way overpriced for what it is.

    Voile Hyperdrifter could work but you might run into that same issue with ordering them from the US. They used to make a ski called the Buster which fits but could be hard to find.
    It sucks to suck.

    Fair enough, I should read more closely.
