Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Camox birdie + Marker Baron

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hello!

I'm looking to buy a new pair of skis for my wife. She is an expert snowboarder and a strong intermediate skier. We mostly ski resort but I just bought a pair of qst99+shift binding and I'm planning on doing a few one day tours this winter. She is a bit lazier and will probably come with me only a few times and, considering that, I'm thinking of buying some more versatile bindings. I know she wants the Black Crows Camox Birdie ski, which I found on a sale at 370eur, and on the same website, I found a pair of 2017 Marker Baron -50% (about 180eur). So...the question is, are Marker Baron good enough for piste skiing, considering we will probably do that 90% of the time, ar do the extra hight and mobile parts get in the way?

Fine for piste skiing effectively they are just a Marker Griffon on a riser.Weight and ramp might be a bit of a ballache.

They should be fine, that's about my usage profile in recent years, most all lift served on&off with very occasional skinning. I never found the little extra height underfoot very noticeable (but maybe you should not mention it in first place Smile )

Baron is heavier than a heavy thing on a heavy day. At 1355g it's over 400g heavier than a Griffon which in turn is nearly 100g heavier than a Squire. A Camox Birdie in 165 only weighs 1650g so that's a bit of a mismatch, especially given its added lift. Barons/Griffons are also a pain to click in to especially if she's lightweight with a short bsl. If she needs a skinning mode then go F12 Tour. Don't be cheap, get her some decent kit - especially when you already have a natty set-up.
