Laugh it up everybody, I live in Chicago.

 That being said, I'm looking for a fun twintip, predominantly for park but also for moderate steeps and a little powder (Yes, these things do exist in the flatter portion of the country, just in less abundance and far shorter than anywhere else).  When you're all done laughing at my misfortune, feel free to help out.

 Ha, I grew up in Chicago, so I feel your pain! Learned to ski on that man-made granular stuff and on glorified garbage dumps! Sorry I don't really have any ski suggestions, but your post made me remember waiting in the chair lift line for 20 minutes, so that I could do the 45 second run!

BTW, there really are no steeps in IL or WI

Well I guess its all about perspective, but thats probably what drew me to the park, you don't really need a "mountain". Maybe one day I'll be lucky enough to live somewhere a little less flat as well!

I'm still in Chicago, actually... Are you planning on doing the majority of your skiing in the midwest or traveling to other places?

 I'm hoping for a trip out to Colorado next winter but in reality I'll be staying local for the time being.

I've got a friend who has the Dynastar Nothing But Troubles and likes them.  It should handle anything you'll find in the midwest well and rip in the park, super flexy.  One thing to consider though is if you're too heavy it might not be stiff enough for you, my friend is pretty light.

I'm about 150 so I'll definetily look into those, I was also looking at the Armada Ar6 if anyone had experience with that ski.
