Which Park Ski for the Ice Coast?
I'm looking for a (preferably symmetrical) park ski, for both rails and jumps (maybe a bit more rails than jumps) - but here's the catch: I'm also a ski instructor on the East coast, so I'll need to make some decent turns on the hardpack as well. I'm 5'8-5'9, 145-150 and was looking at the Atomic Punx 173 or the Volkl Wall 177. Which of these skis will be better for what I'm looking to do?
If you have other suggestions for skis/lengths let me know as well.
probably volkl wall since they are stiffer and will hold on better on groomer! punx are really sick to if you are into "softer" kinda skis
walls hands down; symmetrical and a great ski all around; you will not like them however if you hate moderately stiff skis though

I don't mind stiff skis at all, unless they are really heavy. I'm assuming the walls would be better in a 177 than 169 for my height/weight, right?
yes, you will be fine in a 177

my brother is the same height and weight and rides the 185 walls and im 5'6" and 120-125, riding the 169. they aren't a heavy ski and unless you love short skis, I wouldn't go lower than 177.

The 177 will be perfect for you
