I was looking for help picking a new pair of skis. I'm an advanced skier, I used to compete (racing) until a couple years ago when I switched over to park. I'm 19... prolly started doing park at about 14/15. I don't compete park at all, but I'm pretty good... I can do rails, backflips, 180s, etc. I don't have a ton of money so I try and get good equipment and keep it for a while, one ski quiver ;)
So I'm trying to pick a new ski and it's bloody difficult. I was using Line 1260's (the orange coloured ones) until I got a fracture in them this year. I was looking for something with about 95 waist (minimum 90, max 100) that is mainly a park ski but will still perform well in pow and off piste. I ski mainly at local hills with man-made snow, but I also have a history of running off to switzerland, colorado, utah, etc.
I am 5'10" 176lbs... what would you advise?
I am currently thinking mainly the Line Chronic Cryptonites, but also the: Line Blend, Volkl Gotama, and Volkl Wall, any others?
