We ski east so mostly hard pack but he loves bumps and trees so will be in crud and a bit of pow if and when we're that lucky. No park stuff yet and it would be at least a year or two before he'd be ready for the park team (if he does park, I will enforce the precondition that he spend a season on a park-specific Dev team).
So, anyone have opinions on whether twin-tips would be just as good as regular skis (or better or worse)?
