Ski weight - when does it matter?
Hey guys, I need some advice.
I'm in the market for a new pair of powder touring skis. I'm looking at the Icelantic Natural 111 & G3 SEEKr 110. I ski in the the Canadian Rockies and BC. Both skis are similar dimensions but very different weights. The Icelantic skis will likely descend better but are 1.5 lbs heavier for the pair. Is 1.5 lbs enough to make a significant difference when skiing laps? I don't do long tours or mountaineering missions.
Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
