i live in Illinois and ski 90% park and 10% everything else. I'm 13 and weigh 90 pounds, I'm like 5 feet 2 and currently ride a 147cm line future spin. I was hoping for something fully symmetrical thats playful, durable and good on jumps and rails. I do take an occational trip out west tho. out of three i would say I'm about a level three skier.
Look at 4FRNT Click! they are really reliable. They haven't failed me yet. They are a really good park ski, but they are also good for regular skiing all around the mountain.
thanks ill check them out, any others?
My brother rides Line Chronic 2013's. He says they are amazing for all around use. They look freaking sweet and they are true twin tips. Just make sure to detone your edges so that you don't catch your edge. You really need to do them for the 4FRNT Click!
anything that around 160 length, you will grow into them and you would be able to use them for more than just one season(anything smaller you could grow out of). But really any price point ski, or if you want something a little fancier then go for it. I would recommend the line afterbang 166, it won't get totally buttery because you are so small, and they should probably last more than a couple of years. They would be long at first, but once you grow they will feel better. Just get something more than 160 but less than 170.
Thanks so much, what do you think about the k2 domain?
Seconding Line Chronics. Not truly symmetrical, but pretty close, and an excellent all around ski if you want a park focus but something you can still take other places. Cheap, too (but still a high end ski).
domains would be fine, they are above an entry level park ski and would work well if you are planning on skiing mainly park(they won't rip groomers too great) get them in a 164, you want to grow into them. You don't weigh enough to utilize the 159 as you would want to before you grow out of them. So get the 164s they will feel long, but you will be able to ski them for a long time, and once it is time to get new skis after the domains, then the domains should still be long enough to use as urban skis
