Allmoutain Twin Tip ?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

 

Hey im lookin for an allmountain twin tip. 
I normally ski 65% Groomer and 35% Powder and I sometimes go into the park. 

Which Ski would be good for me ? 

Scott Punisher ? 
Blizzard the One ? 
Volkl Bridge ? 

thank you for your help

As long as park skiing is something that you dabble with rather than live for, the "One" is the most versatile of the three.

The Bridge (current version) has full length reverse camber. This allows the ski to feel very easy to pivot or spin and to be very manuverable in deeper snow for a ski of its width. The Bridge feels quite at home in the park but stability is not it strong suit and grip is rather weak.

 

The One has a flat section through the main ski body with very low tip and tail rise. The stability in mixed conditions and grip on firmer snow of the One is quite a bit better than the Bridge and it's performance in deep snow is better largely due to the additional width. The One is passable for riding switch.

 

If you live for the park and want to prioritize that, the Bridge might be a better call but that's about the only thing the Bridge is better at.

mine(the ones) are mounted on the line and they ski switch pretty well. Not as well as center mount but better than anything else I have owned.

 

switch in to soft snow is doable as well but my thugs are tons better at that because there is 15 cm more ski.

 

One of thing I cant wait is in the next month I get to ski them again! literally there is always fun to be had on that ski.

Mt. Seymour Cypress Mountain and Whistler but I also wanna use them in Austria !

 

So do you think I can take the Marker Squire for my Blizzard the Ones and I could ride with them fast because the Din ist just to maximum 11 or can I use the binding just for freestyle and in powder conditions ?

 

And what should I take 90mm or 110 mm ?

 

best regards.
