K2, I still have what I think are public enemies from 2004, and now ride k2 domains. Topsheet chips but edges and bases refuse to die, even after catching on nails, riding over rocks etc. Friends say armada is also tough as nails.
it ain't Saturday, but it don't matter to me... GOT NO JOB!
Any ski with a side wall is going to be very durable. Capped skis chip and wear out faster due to their construction. Ive been rocking Volkl walls for most of my park career. Im on my second pair now and my last pair lasted me just about 4 seasons, so theyre pretty bomb proof. K2 is making their Iron Maidens with a slime wall under foot now, which is a urethane side wall that is flexible, making the ski more forgiving when hitting rails, so that would be a good ski to keep in mind as well. Just shop around and figure out what you need, then make a decision from there.

I have the Head Mojo 80's and Jon Olsson pros. They both stood the test of time. After numerous years of abuse on jumps, rails, and everything else, they took the punishment.
The Mojo 80's did loose an edge under the boot after 2.5 seasons, then switched to the jon olssons, they lasted about 3 seasons and under the boot is a little rough but, the edge is still intact. The other thing is that the top sheet does not chip, it scratches and those are hard to see, but does not chip.
I have not ridden the newest Heads because I enjoyed these and they lasted a while.
K2 makes very durable skis. Specifically, I have the K2 recoils and although they are a little heavier than other park skis, because of the 3.5mm steel edges, they hold up great and can withstand big hits on big jumps. Also Rossignol and Armada make quality skis.
Stay away from Salomon. They do make fun, rather soft skis, however they do not last long, compared to the aforementioned companies.
Their first year was last year, and I do mean last years FRs. I skied on them for 80+ days (5-6 days a week all season, almost 100% park, mostly rails), beat the crap out of them, and they could still easily go another season (or even more) if I wanted them to.
Although I know this is going to get a lot of hate here but I will recommend you the surface double time. I know in the past few years people have have problems with them but this year they beefed up the core a bunch and it's just a great overall ski in my opinion
All the brands mentioned here are known to make very durable skis, but K2 is probably the one brand know to be making the most durable skis out there, both the core and the edges are basically indestructible.
