Im an adv intermediate- expert skier on the east coast. I need a good all mountain ski that i can hit the park with for a low price. Ill be mostly on piste but i might head west a bit so i want a good tip&tail rocker ski.

 

Im thinkin the Blizzard Bushwacker or the Line Prophet Flite. Both the 2012 model for money reasons... Can i get some help choosing? Other suggestions are welcome as well

We need to know a little more about you... for starters - advance intermediate to expert is a HUGE range of skill levels, so be a little more accurate with that if you could. The reason I mention that is because both the Flite and Bushwacker would be good skis for an adv intermediate - adv skier, but definitely not enough for most experts. Also how tall are, how much do you weigh, how aggressively do you ski.

 

If you answer these I could provide more feedback on whether these skis would be good for you - as I have skied both.

I can ski most everything on the mountain with little effort but i am still quite cautious in the park because im new to that kind of stuff. Id consider myself aggressive on everything but moguls, and going fast is just what I do. Despite all of these things i would still not consider myself an expert. I am 5'7 and 130 lbs.

Based on what you said the Flite could be a good option for you. Even though you consider yourself an expert, you are quite light like myself, so I don't think you would overpower the Flite to often. That being said, you're looking at the Flite and the Bushwacker, for as you said 'so I can hit the park'. The Flite or even the Prophet 85/90, would be good options for that. The Bushwacker however is a flat tail, about as flat as they come, so it would be far from ideal in the park, they are also softer then the Flite.

 

So a couple options you could look at would be; The Flite, Prophet 85/90, Volkl Wall, Armada El Ray or Ar7.
