Fat park skis
I'm looking for some fat skis that i can shred in the park but still slay everywhere on the mountain. Something 90+ underfoot. Anyone got any suggestions?
Nordica soul riders. 134-97-124 all mountain twins super flexy. Refer to a kieran mcveigh edit to see them in action.
Epic plank vaporizer 117?-97-117? Not sure exactly on the specs but they are symmetrical fat skis. Refer to a Sam zahner or totally Trevor edit to see them in action

There's a formula you can follow to find your steeze quotient, it's quite simple. Just count up the number of inches of ass exposed by your sagging pants, the number of X's found on your outfit, the number(in millimeters) of goggle sag you have, then the number of guns you carry on you at the hill(these are +5 each). Add that all up and you can put a number to your steeziness! BOOYAH!

Most companies now make at least one ski that fits your needs. If you're looking for more park oriented performance, without sacrificing the ability to ski all mountain, I'd look at stuff around 100 underfoot. However if you're more interested in all mountain skiing, but still want to be able to ski the park on the same ski, some around 107 underfoot might fit your bill better. Its all personal preference, I prefer a slightly wider ski for everything, but then again for what you want to do, some people would want something on the skinnier side, ie. ~100 underfoot. Regardless, I've listed skis from both categories so you can choose. See below ...
Skis around 100 Underfoot

K2 Kung Fujas
K2 Shredittor 102 (come out for the 2013/2014 season and replaces the Kung Fujas)
Dynastar 6th Sense Silencer

Skis around 107 Underfoot
Line Sir Francis Bacon
Salomon Rocker2 108
Rossignol Sickle Open

There are probably a few that I've missed, but I'm sure some other guys will fill those in for me. Hope this helps, Joey

I post from mobile the majority of the time, so if the above is incomprehensible, I apologize.
hold the phone my good men, you seem to be forgetting the new Armada Al Dente, henrik Harlauts pro model ski coming out next year, if I were you i'd wait for that beauty, thing is soft, fun, and fat, and if you need to see if its a good ski, just look who rides it, phil and henrik, the 2 dudes who can say they ski over 300 days a year. Goodluck man

Pretty much perfect. I don't 'future spin' so I can't justify owning a dedicated park ski. J-mos are still super light and playful for park but are stiff enough that they can lay a solid turn on groomers and almost anything else. Don't really take them out on pow days (I have bibby's so I might as well). Don't be afraid to go big, on3p runs long, but they ski short. I'm 5'10/140, expert skier, and I'm on 181's mounted dead centre. I've been on quite a few different pairs of demo's here in whistler, and I can confidently say ON3P is worth every penny. The only ski I've enjoyed more than J-mo's are my bibby's (not exactly a park ski, pbj's come close but they are still to damp)....
yeah he said he wants something that can handle all mountain too. the al dente is a noodle apparently, and would definitely not be a good choice for out of the park
