But I have some time to pick my skis this year, and i need help. Ill start out with the basics. I am 5'11" around 180 lbs. I Ski about half park, half everything else. I already have a pair of seths, so i am looking for a ski to compliment them mostly for park. After skiing on the seths in the park all year, i wasn't progressing much, then one day i demoed a pair of foils from the shop I work at and doubled my bag of tricks in one day. This lead me to the realization I should probably get some park skis. I love the foils for their Fun factor, their snappyness and their ease of spin.
Most of this is probably due to the fact that my shop carried the 166. Being 5'11" this feels like cheating. and im worried it wouldnt be enough length for anything out of the bumps. I like the feel of the salomons, and i think ill stick with the company. Would the foil most likely fit me the best, or should I look into their other skis? Budget isnt really an issue since i get proforms... Im just looking for a good fit that will help me progress like that one day last season.
I know this is sorta a rough question, and arbitrary at that... but please try to help, and i can help you along if you need it. I ski in CO so my all mountain ski needs to be good in bumps, trees, crud, pow, etc...
