I need to be able to ski park and also some big mountain/powder with one pair of skis, because i can't afford 2 pairs. I'm considering line blend, but if you have any other suggestions that would be great
What is the snow like where you ski? If you arent skiing in wet cement the blend would be a great one quiver ski. It would be perfect here in colorado. Such a fun ski, as soon as you step into it you understand how everyone on the blend does such fucked up butters, it really is the best ever.
I would maybe look at the Salomon Rocker2 100 for what you describe. If you need something a litter stiffer than the Blend this might be a great option. Also id look at the Kartel 98. Both of them could be a great fit depending on how stiff you want your skis to be.
I have skied on blends for the last 3 years, great ski to say the least. Now I'm riding the K2 Shredditor 112, essentially K2's version of the blend but a little wider. I would suggest the K2 Shredditor 102.
Blizzard Cochise or Regulator are the way to go. A lot like the shreditors but lighter and stable as fuck. They're not true true twins, but they work great in park. Check out Calvin Lyons if you're dubious of their park ability.
Blend is good, also the J ski Allplays are sick too.... I shred them on the east coast and took a trip out west to BC when there was some good snow and could shred them there too. The early rise on them makes a huge difference as well as the wider underfoot. And they're flexible so they're super fun to shred park on--Even if I just skied park I would have bought these skis. Also j skis is a wicked company and face it who doesn't love Jlev
