advancing intermediate skier(by that I mean I can do some double blacks in mid-size east coast mountains but not in an expert fashion), 5'10, 155-160lb so def on the light side, skiing exclusively on piste in east coast. (no interest in glades, bumps on trail are fun though). Hit my first flat boxes yesterday and feels I want more park. I can see myself doing 80% mountain 20% park in the future.
I'm currently riding on a pair of 2012 elan waveflex 8, 168cm, 72 underfoot. While it's good for normal mountain/carving, it's by no means a park ski. not even close. But as an absolute park beginner, do I really need a new pair of twin tip like Line Mastermind or K2 Sight?(I'm still recovering from the mental coma of skating on a pair of Bridges on ice at Stowe so I need those camber) I'm not sure how fast would I improve in the park, and I don't know if I want to ski switch for anything. If going only front/sideways, are my Elans okay for boxes and small jumps?
