Skis for next season? help!
OK so I am starting to decide what pair of skis I should get for next season. I am going to buy them soon to get 2014 skis for a good price after the season is over. I am 5'11 and 145. I want a ski that will be able to butter easily and very poppy. I will use it for jumps and in the park. Here's the catch. I am wanting a ski that is a little bit widder to be able to use it in some powder too. I am making a trip up to Indian head next year so that is the reason. So all around I am looking for a poppy, buttery, all around good ski that can preform in the park on jumps and in powder. I was looking at the 2014 blends but I have heard story's about them snapping real easily. Any replies help! Thanks, ethan
Okay one problem with what your asking for. Poppy and Buttery are the exact opposites. A poppy ski will be stiff, a buttery ski will be soft.
Line blend would be a good choice for a all mnt park ski thats a little wider for pow.
Any ski can snap if used wrong or in park frequently.
Might wanna look at Line Sir Francis Bacons. I originally bought mine as a powder ski, but they work so well in all snow conditions that I'm looking at a fatter ski for next season. They turn on a dime on groomers, crud, or deep pow. They work really well in the park too, and buttering on them is easy.
Plus, they're the best looking ski on the planet :)
