I'm looking for an all mountain ski that can go hard In the park. I live in Wisconsin but am moving to Colorado next year so I want a ski that can ride well in powder but more centered towards hard pack/ park. I'm 5' 10" and 160 lbs. I'm looking at the Dynastar 6th Sense Slicer, the Line Blend, Line Chronic, Moment PB&J, and the Volkl Bridge. They're all a combo of camber and rocker besides the bridge, which is full rocker. One concern I have is with the bridge and how the rocker would affect me. I would obviously get a slightly longer ski for that but beyond that I'm wondering if it will do anything. I like to ride more rails than jumps and like to ride all around the mountain as well. Based on that information what ski would sit me best? I've done tons if research but I'm having a hard time deciding because they all seem so similar.

For Colorado all mountain and park I'd go 100~ underfoot, so blend and pb&j are right there. Another one to consider is The ON3P Jeronomo. Similar to the other two, but stiffer flex than the blend (while still maintaining playfulness in the park). From my research it seemed to be a great 1 ski quiver for all mountain and park, and ON3P are USA made and known for quality. I got mine the other day , they are sweet and seem very well made. Can't wait to ski them here in CO.
But if you want a really soft playful ski go blend. It'll be a little sketch at high speed though.
Blend probably 185 (actually more like a 182cm length tip to tip). ON3P 181, 185 if you want a longer ski.
