Beginner Park Skis Suggestions
So i've been skiing pow and big mountain in the Dolomites, Italy ever since i was like 9 or 10 years old. However, due to the recent snow conditions i've been feeling more and more drawn into the park and into the jumps. I'd like to learn and what not to be able to spice up my game in competitions and what not. Anyways, i was wondering if you guys had any suggestions of park skis for beginners. I'm a type 3/3+ skier, 17 years old, 165cm(5 ft 4in) for 55 kg(120+ lbs) and i'm a skinny but muscular guy. My budget is around the 300-700$ range without bindings. I'm currently riding Sick Day 95 2014 and Armada JJ 2.0 2015. I was looking into Atomic Punx, Line TC, ON3P or any other good park ski that could slowly get me introduced to the park scene. Any good light ski and binding combo you guys would recommend?

I would reccomend a stiff full camber ski sonce youre a beginner. Such as the Atomic punx, Rossignol storm, Amplid Syntax, Armada AR7, or Surface Auburns

Agreed ^. The Salomon NFX, Atomic Punx, Volkl Wall, Line Chronic?, Atomic Infamous wouldn't be a bad wild card option. Dirty Bubble had some good choices up there as well. I'd look into all these options and narrow it down. A lot of these skis are fairly similar so sometimes it might be hard to narrow down, but durability is a huge thing to consider as park skis turn to street skis quicker than any other ski.
