Hey guys. Needed some help with some new skis this year.
I'm 5'8, 14 years of age and around 120 pounds. I am a pretty beginner intermediate skier. I can throw spins of rails and jumps and trying my first flip soon. Now here's the twist, but I don't know if it matters or not. I'm from chicago so I ski on practically ice. So I'm looking for a ski that can hold edge pretty well, sorta decently soft but stiff enough to bring me out of sketchy landings. Don't know if that makes sense but any reccomendations are fine. Just explain why u like the ski!
there are a lot of great options for you,
line future spin
atomic punx or infamous
k2 sight or recoil
rossi storm or scratch
armada thall, ar7 or pipe cleaner
liberty has a new ski out that is really good and would work for you too
"Just buy some skis that dont break" - Dad
Thanks man. Definetly look into some of those
I would look for something that is close to full camber (like the recoil) or just full camber (ar7, pipe cleaner, thall) because they will give maximum edge hold on the ice.
I second the full camber recommendation. Rocker isn't needed on these ice rink-like hills in the Midwest.
you could check out volkls as well
i suggest the Duret Monstre, Great ski for park, slays kickers and rails
i would recommend the 4frnt switch blade. its full camber, decently soft, but super stable all mtn.
