But red ones are faster, although blue ones are better for flips.

See what you can find in the lost and found. If you find two that fit your boots, you're ready to shred!

Wow, skiblueknob - obviously no one has any good serious answers for you yet! I'm pretty clueless and depend on the shops for advice, so I can't help you. My son seems to like his Volkls, though (and they have lots of colors which might please the other posters).

 

But welcome to the forum! I hope that you have some luck with shopping advice!

skiblueknob, you're getting silly answers because no one can give you an informed answer without more information. Height and weight, where and what conditions you're skiing, your skill level, how much skiing you've done, what skis you've already been on and whether you liked them or not...

Im a 15 year old. im 5' 5 and weigh 110 pounds. I ski at blue knob where they have some nasty moguls. but that's not what I'm looking for . I'm looking for pipe and park skis. I've rode atomics and rossingnols . I very much likes the atomics, they were way lighter

Atomic makes good skis, buy them and go ski.

what would be the best park skis tho? im looking between 150-160. i Would like k2s or atomics

This is no such thing as "best" park/mogul/powder/slalom/gs/dh/etc ski.  What one person likes another can just as easily hate.  Everyone is different and nobody else skis exactly the way you do.  If you can demo some K2 park skis, do it and then decide between the K2 and Atomic.  If you can't demo a K2, buy the Atomics since you already said you liked them.  If you have friends that are your size and they have park skis maybe you could try theirs.

Have you looked at one of the buyer's guides like Freeskier and compared the different park-style reviews? Might help you narrow it down and give the wise ones here a little better idea of what you're looking for...

For all the gazillions of ski reviews and discussions I've read on epicski, I've seen few if any that cover park skis. I'm sure we have some park skiers here, but this site seems to be largely made up of free skiers with some unknown proportion of racers, and it's possible that no many of those can have a discussion about what makes a good park ski. We'll have to see if someone appears with some advice.

Check out newschoolers.com or maybe some park ski reviews on BlisterGearReview.com

As far as this site, everyone is mostly interested in weird stuff like carving and powder.

 

I've got no idea about park skis, personally.

+1 on blistergearreview.com; their reviews are just about the best I've seen anywhere. Here's what came up by searching for "park skis." And here's the list from their review index dealing with park skis:

DEDICATED PARK SKIS
