    I'm 5"10, 170 pounds. I mostly ski Whistler and Jackson Hole. I ski everything on the mountain but keep most of my time seeking pow. Im getting into ski touring for next season so will need something that works.

    Thanks

    @mattdog3993 The JJ is a lot lighter than the Bacon and would be better for touring. Also the Bacons are really really soft flexing so if you like that go with them, otherwise the JJ has a stiffer construction through the middle section of the ski. Whistler and Jackson both have some good stuff to huck, so something without tail rocker might be more in order such as the Norwalk from Armada. It is very similar to the JJ, just without the tail rocker so it is more stable and won't wheelie out on landings.
