i know these skis are pretty different, but lemme know what you think........now for the details
i'm 6'2'' 178 lbs.... whatever i buy will be used exclusively for park (189 hellbents for pow). i live/work in aspen so the x-park is the playground of choice. i'm about 50/50 rails/booters...and the booters are usually big 50-65 ft stepdowns. i was thinking 182 for the alphas and 179 for the peps (the 189 peps looked too big for park). i like the idea of a fatter ski in the park, but the peps seem like they might be a little too soft for the big landings. also, i've been on ar5's for so long that the alphas seem like a safe bet. last thing....does anybody know how good coreupt tj's are or what they are similar too?
I just had the opportunity to fondle both of these skis next to each other the other day. I would 100 percent buy k2s over alphas - first because I like the way k2s ride and I hate the way the new armadas do, but besides that because the k2s honestly feel way more quality in your hands. Pick them up and you will know what I mean.
