I ski mostly in summit county and I already have a powder ski (hellbents) and a park lapping ski (chronic cryptonites). On days where there isn't enough fresh for the 'bents but a few stashes in the trees what kind of ski would you all recommend? I would want to use it in the park and for some fresh in the trees was thinking something around a 100mm waist
i think the zeros would work extremely well for you. wide enough for some powder but the perfect shape for park. idk about the blends tho. they're a little more all mountain/powder oriented. if you are looking at the 2010/2011 blends i would definitely say no. they have frontal rocker and are much more all mountain/ powder. i have skied them and the park is not a place where they are at home. they work but aren't great. i would go with the zero's.
The tip and the tail are soft underfoot they have a bit more meet. I think for an all mountain ski they are pretty soft, but they have a super round flex and for how soft they are they are incredibly stable. one of the best skis ive ever been on.
I ski Summit County and I think the conditions suit my J-mos more days than any other ski I have. I have a pow ski and a park ski, but when I want to do both (almost every day) I bring out the Jeronimo. It is a fantastic choice, and a very suitable one ski quiver for those who like park and all mountain. I would describe it as a park ski that rips like an all mountain ski. Usually that means it's shitty in one of the categories, but I was pleasantly surprised that it is fairly burly and feels natural in the park.

I looked at ON3P's website (at the 2011 model) and they have a 181 and a 171 length. Do the different lengths have different flexes? I prefer a flexible ski and would probably go for the 171 because I hear they run longer like k2s
