Affordable All-Mountain Twin Tips

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a quality all-mountain twin tip ski that I can get for an affordable price. I'm looking for a pair of skis under $400 that are good for doing everything on the mountain from double blacks to even a little bit of park. I'm 6'2" and weight about 210 lbs. and pretty aggressive East Coast skier. I've been looking a lot at the Volkl Bridge's (little pricey) and the K2 Press's (more of a beginner ski), but just haven't found the right ski. Just looking for some ideas and reviews. Thanks.

K2 Sight comes to mind. In a 179 it would work well. They are surprisingly stiff for the ski it is, would be great for all mountain on the East Coast and if you decide to do a bit of park you'd be all set. Also the 179 may sound a bit short, but the K2's measure longer then they would suggest.
 

 

Oh and its a full wood core, sidewall ski, for 350$. It really doesn't get much better at that price point..

Have a look at levelninesports.com.

I'm a bit taller and a bit heavier and don't go in the park. Purchased some Ninthward THA 187's for $207 delivered to my door in Oz.

I believe that they have run out of the THA's but they have other twintip & tt powder skis available for very good prices.

Would you rate the K2 Sight's over the K2 Press's or another ski? My main focus is all-mountain but reviews for both of those seemed more like it was just a beginner park ski and not as much all-mountain.
