im 6'4" and want some long ass skis, but i pretty much only ski park so its impossible to find long enough skis. What are some long park skis, im talking like 185 or bigger. I know 9thward makes tha 187 but i dont know if thats for park or what?
this years pollards are awesome. i rode them in park and powder all the time. the elizabeth is nothing at all like hte pollard. pollards are really stiff, elizabeths are pretty soft and hella wide with a 110 waist. talk to joshbryant from jibij, he knows all
I'm in a similar position. I'm 6'3, 180-185lbs. I'm either getting one pair for everything in Whistler this year (Pistols, Vicious, maybe ARV), or a park pair and powder pair. You're very limited in terms of long park skis - I won't ski under 185cm either. The 05 Pollard in 186 or 06 Chronic Wide in 187 seems to be the best bet. I'm going to email Line today and ask if the Chronic Wide is the same as last year's Pollard and how it will be for park only.
well right now im on the 179 pe's and theyre alright but i just want something really long, more steeze and easier to ride u know. And yeah that liberty ski looks pretty sick but i'd like to see their new lineup first. Also, after the last pair of ar5's i had i swore i wouldnt get another pair of armadas, that ski was terrible. I think my best bet right now is to just get a bc ski and ride it in the park.
Here's the word on the Chronic Wide from the man himself:
Dude, its a sick park ski. We actually used the molds from last year's
pollerds to make this ski with some subtle flex modifications to make it
even more versatile all around. It kills it in the park being only 6mm wider
then the chronic and out of the park the extra width is a big help.
thanks for riding Line,
I'm pretty sure this is going to be my park ski next year if I can afford a park ski and powder ski.
Chronic Wide is an awesome ski, I used a pair in the spring and thought they were even better than the Pollards which i own. If you are looking for a durable ski in a 187cm you want to look at the Chronic Wide http://www.untracked.com/highlight-175921.html
hey i noticed you ski mt brighton. so do i sometimes. mainly boyne mt. tho. im 6' 185lb. and last year i had the 179 pe's also but i thought they were to small for me. i think im ethier getting 185 arv's or 189 pistols. what evers cheapest.
189 Viciousor any other ski about 190 or over. 3skiguy, Line does not work for everyone, the kid is 6 foot 4. just get the longest twins you can find. type of the ski will not matter (as long as they are newer twins) as much as the length you are on.
