What are some good skis? PLEASE HELP

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I want to get new skis this year. I am not sure if i should get all-mountain or park skis. I really want to do park and get park skis, but im afraid i will not like them when im on other parts of the mountain. If you have experience with different skis, can you please tell me if you are satisfied with your park skis. Can park skis perform just as well on other parts of the mountain? Also will all-mountain skis perform just as well as park skis in the park? 

 


Skis that i am debating on getting: Armada AR7, Armada ARV, Salomon Suspects, Volkl Walls, Scott TW Jibs, or Atomic Punx

 

P.S. I am new to park this year, but i dont want to get beginner park skis, i just want to jump into park right away.

Don't get a park ski designed to handle all mountain...

 

DO get a all mountain ski designed to throw in a little park.

ie: Line Blend;great if you like a soft ski.

or ON3P Jeronimo/ Moment PB&J; great if you want a stiff ski.

I would suggest investigating the Salomon Twenty-Twelve; it was originally designed for park/pipe but it turned out that it also performs fantastically in all mountain conditions. In fact, I would ski it regularly if I had a pair myself. The 2013 version of this ski is the rocker2 92.
