Well, you certainly will get some good advice here. However, you are going to have to give everyone just a little more to go on!
Not only are there a ton of skis that are appropriate for BC skiing.....there are few different types of BC skiing. Knowing how the skis will be used will determine what the best recommendations are.
For some, BC skiing is primarily the touring, with some downhill involved. For others BC skiing is more about the downhill, the touring being just a means to get remote slopes, chutes, and couloirs. Each of those types of BC skiing will be best served by a different type of ski...and binding...and boot.
So, what kind of boots and bindings will be used with the ski, and what kind of skiing will they be used for?
Significantly more information is required! Is this an XC ski, a light touring ski, tele ski, alpine touring ski, downhill ski with crossover binding?
If it is AT, get whatever ski that best matches the conditions typically skied. No need to get a "BC" specific ski. I'd recommend something without metal. But unless you are a weight weenie, I'd go for downhill performance over weight (save weight with the bindings, again this recommendation assuming AT use and will differ for XC, light touring, tele, etc!).
SkiMomma- Ed is right, you've cracked medusa's box -- get ready!
I didn't know what I was getting myself into either, here's a link from last year on the topic. We did lose a great wealth of XCD knowledge and especially when MikeK was banned (seems as it was by choice).
