So- recently I broke my Volkl Walls and as it does not seem that Volkl is going to warranty them, i've been off looking for new skis.
As I am sure everyones noticed more and more people are riding wide skis, not just in the bc but the park to. Living in the midwest I rarely get a chance to ski pow, but am interested in how wide skis preform in park. Because they are so much wider, I would guess spinning would be slower, and pipe would be near impossible, but as I don't ride pipe and am not much of a fast spinner thats not going to be a problem. Also, I would defiantly prefer a fun, playful ski good for messing around, and of coarse I want it to be really durable (nothing like my walls that broke in half after 30 days). As of now I've been looking at the Surface live life 2's, Line Elizabeths, and Line Sir francis Bacon nothing over 120 in the waist (I don't want a super wide ski as i still want to be able to turn). live life 2 i hear are bomb proof but stiff, and Lines I hear have a de-lam problem.
If it helps I'm 6 ft tall and about 160 pound, also I'd say I'm around a intermediate park rider and when i get the chance to ski out west I'm and intermediate big mountain/bc rider.
Any info on how wide skis preform in the park or other ski recommendations would be appreciated.
