For those looking for the highest on-trail performance without losing the ability to go off-piste, the Ripstick 96 is a great choice.
The Blizzard Rustler 10 Skis are fun and playful. They prefer shorter radius turns and dominate off-piste terrain. While they hold a fine edge on groomers, they are built to play on the whole mountain.
The Salomon MTN Alpine Touring Binding (Atomic Backland Tour) elegantly provides a feature set useful to most ski tourers without wasting weight with unnecessary bells and whistles.
