New to skiing, Need help
Alright im 6' 180 lbs and am planning on skiing in park city or wherever i can get hired, i was thinking about getting the line assassin or the chronic in 166 and was looking for some input.
dude u need something bigger than a 166. get the 187 chronic wides. you wont regret it. also armada ar5 in 181. but if ur a new skier mabe chronic 177 or chronic wide 177 or armada ar5 in 176
CHECK OUT RE-ACTION THIS FALL
im not new to skiing just new to freestyle, i usually rent a 180 generic single tip but i want to buy a set of skis and stuff since im planning on working at a resort for a month, ive also considered the invader but since its new nobody knows anything about it.
ya you deffinatly need something longer than 166.
if you are goin for freestyle go with the chronic they are a better park ski than the assasin and are still good all mountain and powder
you want something in the 170-175 range, and prolly something suited towards an all mtn ski. personally i think some good choice might be 174 Public Enemy. other good choices might be 176 AR5, 177 chronic wides, possibly the new Madtrix replacements.
dude the invader is a new ski but plenty of people have skiied it and know stuff about it. if you are skiing all park get invaders. they are really fun to ski on cause they are so soft. they work fine on groomers too. if your gonna get invaders get 178
He's 6 ft, and is gonna be skiing Park City, I'm thinking your gonna want at least 180's, since you rent 180's anyway, you'll be fine.
day I beat my previous record for consecutive days I've been alive.
yea get 178 invadors if u want to ski line.... no need for a single tip

word,i feel ya adrian, now yall the struggle when another nigga has to go through the same shit, lifes tough dawg, keep the faith - ATL
if you want the chronic go with the biggest size. there's absolutely no reason for you to have a ski less than 175cm, twin tip or not.
the assasin is an all mountain ski, its got inserts placed further back, not in the middle... where you should mount your bindings for park & freestyle.
go with this season's chronics if your looking for park and a good all around ski or get the invaider if you want a great park ski.

Thanks jyall I'm prolly just going to wait till i get there and demo some skis and then buy them
i got assassin mtx's there a lil stiff for me but i mean assassins would be a great park/all mtn ski i like them so far but i never skied powder or bumps with them but there ok i would get them over the chronic....look into the trouble maker to if u dont do rails it will be a great ski for u

Skiing in NC aint so bad
I hate it when snowboarders think they are so cool because they can 50 50 a rail
gwt some fujatives, invaders, or something good but not the most expensive if your just barely starting. Plus you wont feel like your getting crappy stuff cuz pep ride the fujatives(since they're his pro model) and a ton of people are rockin the invaders
