hey guys, needed some help deciding on a ski to get which is driving me nuts. basically its between the AR6 and the pipecleaners as thats all thats really available for me. but open to other suggestion like walls and dumonts.
anyway im taking a gap year from school right now before going to uni (live in the UK), so im taking a ski course in whister for 3 months. it will be level 1 and 2 ski insructur some safety stuff and park stuff later. i already have a pair of all mountain back country skis/ all mountain (rossignol scratch bc from 05) which i will use for the general course time, but want a park ski for this year as my other is not really good for park. so therefore on the weekends i want to be hitting the park (jumos pipe rails) as much as i can and skiing the mountain. so the desion on which of the 2 skis to get has been pretty hard, is pipe cleaner durable enough? and AR6. not a beginner, can slide rails and spin off and jumps no problem. pipecleaners would be my pick but dont know if they will be durable enough (heard all about the race base) for what im doing. also which lenghts i should get? (thinking 181 but is that too big? 176?)
im am also 5'10'' 75 kg (think thats 160ish pounds). been skiing for a long time so experienced and ride agressive all mountain. been doing park for a few year too.
dunno if you can help anymore with this information (i know its a lot... sorry) but if you do have an opinions i would very much appreciate it! also ive heard the AR6's have no diference to last year but just the grapphics, is that right?
