Need some All Mountain/Park ski recommendations
So I'm looking to buy my first set of skis. All recommendations are appreciated!
weight: 133 pounds (60kg)
height: 5'7 (174cm)
skill level: intermediate-advanced (16 year old skiing since I was 7)
Price range: preferably
I mostly stay on groomers (60%) but also some terrain park (40%) since I'm on the east coast. Will move back to Germany in 2 years and will take these skis with me.
Here's some skis I'm already considering: Volkl Kink, K2 Sight, Atomic Vantage Panic, Armada AR7
Thanks in advance!
I don't recommend the atomic panic, especially if you're on the east coast. they're my only ski at the moment and they are pretty terrible for gripping anything other than soft snow. I like them when there is an inch of fresh, or later in the day when the sun softens everything up, but they kind of suck on groomers.
That's interesting, since those were my favorites up to now (mainly due to price).
Yeah that's the reason I got them, I think they were on sale for $230.
They've actually discontinued the panic and replaced it with a new shape. It's called the 90C or something.
It's not a bad ski, I don't think you would like it for east coast conditions, though. Any kind of hardpack/ice and youll be sliding all over the place. If you get softer snow at all though, it can be pretty nice. I like it for bumps as well.
All times are Eastern (-4)
