Hey gang, my son's ready to move to a twin-tip and is getting heavily into park skiing this season. I need to find a set of skis that can do anything.
About the skier:
- 14yrs old
- 120 lbs
- 5' 3"
- Advanced all-mountain skier, learning park tricks now
- Very athletic
- Likes to ski fast
- Skis deep snow, trees, groomers, not a bump dogger
- He's coming off of a 140cm, and I think he should be on a 150-155cm
He's been on Volkl RTM's the past two seasons, but he needs something with a larger platform for float in the deep stuff now that he's growing, and with the tricking it definitely needs to be a twin-tip, and flexible.
I went out looking at skis tonight for the first time in a while, and was looking at the Armada El Rey, and the Volkl Gotama. But no idea what else is out there that fits the bill.
Any firsthand experiences with all-mtn/park skis for young teens is much appreciated, thank you! :)
