Which ski should I buy?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

hi,

I ski mostly on the mountain and can somewhat-easily ski double black diamonds, but I also like to go on pipes and jumps at the park(though I just began so I'm really bad at them). So I'm looking for an all mountain ski that's good on the mountain and is somewhat good at the park. My choices are:

Volkl Wall 2010
Elan Slingshot 2011
Salomon Knight 2011

or maybe something else...
Which one will you suggest?

Welcome to Epic. Uh, what mountain, does it get powder or mostly man made, are its double blacks another resort's blues, do you consider bumps or trees more important than crud, you get the idea.

 

That all said, hard to go wrong with the Wall. Would also consider an Extreme if you tend to do mostly all mountain, softer snow, bumps; a Nordica Dead Money if you tend to do 50/50. Can't speak to the others.

Thanks

uh... mostly man made, and the double black diamonds are blue mountain's... so yes they would be blues in other resorts up north.

So which skis?

Two more questions:

How fast do you ski on the Mountain?

How hard is the snow that you ski on on the mountain?

I like to ski pretty fast ( but not on double black diamonds... ), and the snow isn't hard usually... it's mostly soft.

Or line prophet 100?

I don't think I would prefer any of those skis for pretty fast all-mountain skiing.

 

Are you landing switch from jumps and doing spins?

If not you should move away from a centre mount twin-tip park ski.  Maybe XW Tornado TI PL or Maybe Sentinel?

If so, then I'm at a lossth_dunno-1[1].gif.

Well it's not that speed matters to me that much... I enjoy skiing in different speeds & terrains, but this year i'd like to go more to the park and still do downhill skiing & moguls.

And yes I am going to be landing switch and doing spins, boxes & pipe, but not rails.

So I need a twin tip that's good going downhill as well. But which one? :/
