I am about 5'6'' and about 130 pounds and i need a good powder ski that will be able to ride some park. I have been looking at atomic bent chetlers and blogs and could use some advice on which skis to get too.
blends arnt pow skis. theyere 100mm underfoot. and most pow skis arnt best in the park because of there size. if you dont want rocker then some old elizbeths are a fat park stick. or check out some one lifes. a firends says they are awesome in park (ive never tried them) but i like my chopsticks. they arnt the best for big tricks because of their size but they are still funish
thanks yeah i was looking at the hellbents they look sick in the powder but with 132 underfoot they seem really fat to be going through the park. Also would 170-178 be a good range to get a powder ski with my height and weight?
thanks yeah i was looking at the 183 chetlers and blogs in either 177 or 185s. Also could use advice on hellbents since ive heard they do well in being able to ski park but have a 132 underfoot to ski powder
I wouldn't go for Blogs or Bentchetlers for park (if you're gonna ski rails). I have a pair in front of me and they have the same narrow edges that JJs have. I'd go for something 175-178 if you really want to spin on and off and do big spins in the park.
Hellbents are gonna be big and slow on rails compared to a narrower ski. Bacons could be a good option. The 182 measures short, its more like 178-9, skis well with a forward mount too. Its hard to tell without knowing how much park (and what in the park) you plan to do.
there's a certain point where it neither looks good nor functions properly...that's when you know you look steezy - no_steeze
