SKI HELP nordica, volkl, etc,
I'm about 5'11'' 155. Looking for a new park ski. Plan to also buy some new 105ish all mountain skis so just concerned with park/firm snow performance.
So I used to ski 177 nordica ace of spades and loved em. Had a couple other park skis that didn't last long and broke. Skied some aces last year put they seemed slightly lacking on energy, might be because they are a bit stiff. Demoed cendide 1.0 182 but like them more as an all mountain ski then a park ski, might have to do with they were more traditionally mounted.
Thinking about 177 volkl wall, 179 volkl step, 178 line chronic, 181 OMW

Hi, first of all I really love skiing on volkl. I did race skiing and these skis we're the best i've been skiing on. Now I do some free riding and stuf but I can recommend you the 177 volkl wall they are the perfect skis for in the park! The 179 is also okay but less flexibel. I've skied on both but still like the 177 volkl wall more! Cheers..!

I have the volkl walls, they're pretty durable and just all around solid skis. you can pm me if you wanna know more about them

I think the OMW would be great for you. They are a cambered ski like the rest and your Ace of Spades, but have some energy and a litle flex too them. The Walls my lack the energy you want, they are more of a jump ski. The OMW would be more ideal for you imo, I'm thinking of picking up a pair myself. If you liked your old Nordicas maybe stick with Nordica again. Go OMW for a poppy energetic ski with a little bit of flex, Volkl Wall for a jumpy ski that holds really well but they are real stiff
