The Teton Floater Skis are built to ride everything the mountain has to offer. They are wide enough for the steeps and deeps yet playful enough for park. The Floater is Teton's widest ski, built to keep you afloat in the POW or on top of the water during any water skipping event. The CamRock (rocker/camber) design offers all mountain performance at a fair price. The cambered sections offer power and control while the elevated tip and tail provides a fun forgiving ride.
Skied East coast ice and Utah powder on these and was never disappointed at the performance of these all mountain skis. They are light weight and float on the deep powder, are crisp on groomers and handle ice well. I would recommend these for thos on a budget.
So I bought these skis last year and rode a whole season on them. While they are pretty decent skis they won't blow your mind. They float well enough in powder, probably in part due to the rocker tips and fairly wide stomp. They also hold their on on groomers too but don't expect to carve. However, on ice they don't inspire confidence. While its possible to ride ice the skis are chatter and won't hold a line super well.
They are fairly light weight, for better or worse. Edge to edge is okay, Decently responsive.
Durability...well they took a few rocks in the spring without issue. I don't hit the park so I can't attest to that but they've so far held up in normal skiing.
Overall if you're an expert, pass on these. You'll need a better ski. However, if you are like me and are fairly advanced, and ride 10 to 15 times a year you can't really go wrong spending 100 dollars on these. They won't blow your mind but you'll have fun on the cheap. I'm satisfied enough to ride them this season, maybe even buy another teton brand for the girlfriend
Best Answer:I would choose a binding with the DIN Range you are looking for and a brake width 5-10mm wider than the waist of the ski. The Teton Floater Rocker Skis have waist widths starting at 94mm and topping out at 98mm. I'd say that a dinding with a brake width of at least 100mm will be sufficient.
which side of the ski is supposed to be mounted in the front, black or white?

Best Answer:The blacks go in the front, but it really ought to be marked better. I only figured this out by measuring the width at the tip and tail and putting the larger end in front. The Tetons are fun in the park and decent in powder, but probably the softest most edgeless skis I've ever encountered. This doesn't mean you can't have fun with them, just keep that in mind if you take them into the bumps on any icy day or down fast hardpack, they won't hold very well. I used them as my teaching skis working at Taos last year and they were great for that. A very good ski for the price, but not a one ski quiver.
It really depends on your preference, if you are mounting the bindings from factory settings the front of the skis are black, when I bought my skis I mounted my bindings on the factory labeled notches on the skis. These etched in lines set the binding just behind dead center. if you would like to mount the skis dead center or even further back you can face the skis in any position you want.
I had my bindings done at a ski shop, but they put the black part in the front. Honestly, I don't know if it will make much of a difference but I also don't know much about the mounting process. I like the black in the front because I thought that I would confuse the white with the snow but that is just my preference. Hope that helps.
They mount just as they look in the picture top of the ski's are black. There is also a center line that u use with more of the ski would be in the front. These ski's are fun but have more tall than normal skis because they are part park ski's.. Hope this helps
The black side is in front and you will find a mark right next to the serial number on the side of each ski which is the place you should have the front of your boot when you are in your bindings. Hope this help.
