Alright, check out the Line Blend, Nordica Soul Rider, ON3P Jeronimo, or if you can find the Rocker2 92's, all of those would be good options for an all mountain park ski that will work well in powder for you. I personally use the Rocker 2 92's (or the Twenty Twelves before the name changed) as my park ski. They are super fun in the park but crush it all around the hill and even in pretty deep snow they are super fun because of the rocker. But all of the ones I mentioned above would be great for you.

Take a look at the Moment Death Wish

I enjoy my Volkl Gotama's at Okemo. You may want to give the newer ones a try. Mine are the last last of real skis, no rocker, full camber.

^^^^ This, but good luck finding a new pair. In lieu of those, I'd suggest something like a Peacemaker that's a flipcore twin, is getting pretty strong reviews for that niche.

Geartrade had some 4FRNT Codys cheap a few weeks ago. Backcountryfreeskier in Montana has a nice selection, including skis from Faction, Line, 4FRNT that would fit the bill.

Both are good choices, but won't work well if the OP is planning on skiing a lot of park.

seriously? you do know who designed the Kastle XX and who helped design the SFB? for a powder ski (we are not talking a 90mm wide ski now) both of these can't be more perfect.

the kastle 110 sucks at actually skiing. I would never get it unless I was going to be landing backwards in pow all the time, and we do that tons on the east coast right?

 

Max your being more "real" than the rocker ones is laughable. The rockers ones are fake right?

 

I have no suggestion for you. SFB would work and should be good for what you want.

Sir francis bacon, the blend, nordica soul rider, armada al dente, Liberty helix.

East Coast powder ski with park skills.  If I was in your shoes I would be looking hard for a Line SFB. Other skis to consider would be the K2 Shreditor 112, Salomon Rocker2 108, and the Icelantic Nomad RKR (105).  All top of the food chain for what you are specifically looking for.

 

If you wanted to step down to an all mountain width in the 100mm range Line Blend or K2 Shreditor 102 would be my picks.

If the OP is spending a good deal of time in the park, much likely a lot more then in powder, he won't want something ~110 underfoot. Getting that wide is useable in the park, but not as much fun. The high 90's would be a better all around option.

Maybe the OP should just change the title of the thread to "Best All Mountain Twin Tip Skis?" so that this thread would be a better fit for your answer.

He's answering pretty much exactly what the OP asked.  OP asked for "the best powder twin tip skis that i can also use on the east coast so i dont want them too too wide." and will "Yes absolutely" be using them in the park.  The OP doesn't want a powder ski, the OP wants a "powder" ski.

If you are really looking for an all mountain park ski that will perform well in powder the first thing you need to do is discount 90% of the suggestions made by a bunch of people who have no idea about park/jib ski's.

 

Since you're east coast you're not going to be skiing much powder, obviously you will be in the park a bunch, and you want all mountain performance to boot.

 

ON3P Jeronimo

Moment PB&J

 

these 2 ski's fit the bill of what you are looking for.

^^^^ This, sorta. Disclosure: I'm an old guy who has to follow his kids through terrain parks once in a while. A hoot. Way harder than most non-park people think. But I do like trees, where park-ish skis also work well. So I've demoed a couple of park skis, but mostly just observe what other kids/teens are on. IMHO, the specific best models seem to vary according to where in the east you ski. Can't speak to the ON3P. The one time I tried it, from a friend out west, the PB&J seemed more of an all around great ski that can do the park if called upon, than a park ski that can do the rest of the mountain well. Almost bought a pair, incidentally. YMMV.

 

But if you're looking more for a park ski that can hit everything else, then decision tree: 1) If you ski on a smaller mountain, or someplace in the middle Atlantic area, something like the Armada AR7 or Rossignol Storm, Volkl Wall, or Nordica Ace. Wider than that is a waste outside the park, especially in the bumps you'll be skiing, and not helpful in it. Or 2) if at a bigger or more Northern resort that gets decent powder sometimes, then the Armada ARVTi or PB&J or Volkl Bridge come to mind. The last, like the PB&J, is more an all-mountain that can do the park, but is beefier, so it'll be up on the list if you're a bigger guy, lower down if you're lighter. 

 

Good luck and keep in mind that if you're truly into parks, you'll wear your skis out fast enough that any choice you make will work for a season or two. Maybe $$$ is the best call here.
