Citation...we're not saying it's impossible, just not ideal. As you well know, there is a massive diff between groomed resort skiing on freeheels and going out BC where he'll find hard white ice and corn snow on the downhill bits and wind blasted strastrugi in between the 2 inches of shin bleeding ice on top of soft snow with 20kgs on your back, hell I'm not the best tele skiier in the world but even I can confidently tele down groomed blue runs (even on my skate gear...), can't say the same about doing that out BC in hard conditions even with the latest tele gear. The point is, if the idea is to go out and rip some turns, then stick with the gear he's familiar with (AT is closest) as the touring bit is always going to be a bit of a slog anyway, regardless of what system you use.
