I read here on NS a guy talking about his and saying that he was surprised how well the Bacons were doing in the park, easy to spin and holding up on landings. I haven't tried those, so it's not first hand info, but I figured it could help. I'm sorry I couldn't find the original thread, I tried, but it was months ago..
I skied 95% park on the Bacons last year. They are a little heavy to do fast spinny tricks but for the odd laps they will be perfect. I'm thinking about getting another pair as my daily park ski, either that or Blends.
go for it. I have some old FSB's and they are sweet. I'm not a great park skier by anymeans but they work for me. I'm thinking about taking the EPpros out for a few days this winter for some park laps.
i ski mine in the park quite a bit, they are definitely good park skis, good on jumps, rails they are a tad heavy/big, but im not into gettin wiked techy anyway. like every fucking rockered ski i ski though i just wish they were flat underfoot. i dont really like the feel they have when popping off jumps, and any buttery fun advantage the rocker would give you is kinda screwed by the camber. honestly, it feels like a big normal park ski, i wish it felt like a mini ep or hellbent.
My elizabeths were the shit in the park. So much fun.
The Ski Bums Code to Succesfull liveing:
1) Never fry bacon when you're naked.
2) Always keep at least one foot on the floor when it comes to eating dinner,drinking tequila or playing cards.
3) Don't suck.
