High Society FR the ski for me?
I'm 16 years old,160 pounds, and 5'11''. Skiing Midwest terrain but do go out west quite often. Advanced level III skier who loves to ride the park, 85% rails 15% jumps, but do love to venture to some trees and some casual pow. Want a fun buttery ski that will kill it in the park but will be able to take me anywhere. I have armada halos in 176 but would love a longer ski. Which leads me to question if I would get the 178 or 185?
This years HS FR 185 is rockerd. Big difference compared to the 179 FR which is full traditional camber.
Personally I make the Recommendation for any midwest rider to get a good park-carver ski and then rent pow skis as the pow days come.
The 179 FR is an alright ski but it doesn't blow me a way in terms of capabilities. 185 FR wouldn't really do you any good in the park especially in the midwest.
