    Midweight, midfat touring ski recs

    My daily touring setup is nearing the end of its life, and I'm starting to look for a replacement. I've been on DPS Wailer 105s since 2017 and am looking for something similar in width (98-108) and weight (~1500-1800 g/ski). A couple skis I'm considering are the Elan Ripstick 106, Fischer Hannibal 106, Dynastar Beast 98, K2 Wayback 106, and Faction Prime 3.0 (108). The Fischer Ranger 102 FR also looks great but is probably a bit heavy for daily use.

    I tour in the North Lake Tahoe area a couple times a week and do longer tours in the south lake/Carson Pass area and Cascades once or twice a week. I spend more time on the Sierra Eastside and on larger Cascade volcanoes in the spring and summer so am looking for a ski that can handle firm conditions.

    Any thoughts on these skis or any other recommendations?

    Black Crows Corvus Freebird, Line Vision 108, Atomic Backland 107 . . . Blizzard Zero G 105 is a bit lighter, but has plenty of guts for spring touring.
