Twin-tip All-mountain ski
My name is Anna and I ski in the Alps in Europe and in Australia. I am currently in between a level 5 and 6 skier, wanting to take quite a few lessons this winter in Europe to improve. I am looking for an All Mountain Ski, I can ski well on piste but also be able to make myself familiar with off piste/powder skiing. I would say my main priority is to learn to ski well on piste. I really would like to get a pair of twin tips, as I would love to learn how to ski switch. My partner has always skied twin-tips and absolutely loves it, we got a bit worried though that I might find to ski a twin-tip ski a lot more difficult. The ski I liked the most so far is the Line Soulmate 90 and I am trying to decide between a 158cm or 165 cm ski. I am 167 cm tall and weigh 57 kg.
I would really appreciate your opinion.
Hi, if you're into the Soulmate 90, I'd say go for the 165cm, it's got early rise in the tip plus it's measured before pressing so it'll run shorter than 165cm anyway.
I would suggest that the Soulmate 90 might not be the best ski for you if you're wanting to learn to ski switch and want a twin tip. Whilst the twin, it's only a half twin with a back of centre mount and it's sidecut and flex are both directional so it's not exactly ideal for switch skiing.
Inbetween a level 5 and 6 skiier!?!?
Dang! Here in the USA we only have 3 levels...
