    WTB: touring ski, ~90mm underfoot 180cm

    As the title says Iím looking for a replacement for my touring ski. Had a bad case of early season hunger and no longer have 4 edges on my current setup. Hoping for something reasonably light (no metal).

    For what itís worth, 315mm kingpins will be mounted on them if they donít come with bindings. Thanks in advance!

    177 cm Volkl Amaruq - 127/88/109 (Skis long for a 177), R=22, weight (measured) = 1414g/ski.

    Drilled 1X for 7tm tele bindings; skied 1.5 days; minty condition. Just no need for this in the quiver and in hindsight there never was. $170 shipped to lower 48.

    Here's a link to some info - https://www.freeride.com/gear/skis/volkl-amaruq.html - will post or send photos if you're interested.

    Kastle fx85 $199. 181cm. Skied one run. Nothing I didn't like about it. Low price as I stole it from Sierra last year. Has skin clips tails. Almost enough ski for me to keep for resort at 220lb, but would be perfect tourer for less of a fatty. Mounted with warden 11 for 315mm currently. Bindings add 100.

    edit: got a few PM's with questions and pic request. Added pics. Bottom line is that these would be an amazing spring touring ski, and that's not currently an activity that I'll ever have time for. For my weight and style they're in between two skis that are significantly more focused (dedicated groomer zoomer and wider, longer all mountain missile).

    Comes to $225 new after a coupon. 180 measures 178ish. Skis great and I think hits a sweet spot for skiability and weight (my 180 measures 1240g)

    I have a very similarly spec'd touring ski and I love them. At this price... hard to resist
