I ask this to inform my own decision for Niseko 2018 but (hopefully) it's also an interesting discussion in its own right. I'm personally torn about whether to travel with one or two pairs of skis. In the past I've only brought one pair and it's suited me fine. I do see more people nowadays bring two pairs. Definitely in my bag will be a pair of Salomon QLabs @103mm underfoot, which I'm confident will be great in virtually everything. What has me contemplating the second pair is the uber deep days and I'm contemplating also bringing K2 Cooma 114's. My thought is if I can fit them for weight issues then why not? What do others do? What are you packing?
