REI,

I was planning on coming to the Bozeman, MT shop this week. I know I want to purchase a pair of Scarpa Comp boots and 22 designs OutlawX bindings, but am confused by the blizzard of skis out there to make up my new telemark setup.

I've been skiing on 1996 Scarpa T2s and a bunch of different used downhill skis with BD O2 and O3 bindings. My current skis are BD Crossbows - about 12 yrs(?) old. I've been tele'ing since 1983 and am turning 65 later this year. I plan to use the setup mostly at Discovery. I like powder and crud, and do okay in moguls on the Backside, at least for part of the day.

Any ski recommendations? A buddy of mine loves the Armada 102 (or 106?), any other ideas?

I plan on buying this setup from you in Bozeman, but I don't know what size of boots to get. I believe my T2s are 9 or 9.5 (as are most of my shoes).

Thanks for any info and opinions.
