Give me some more insight
on fat skis
i ski alta but i also want a ski that can do it all, mainly a fat pow ski but can do the park also
must ski switch good too
so far the elizebeths caught my attention but then i found out that its sidecut isnt good for pow
the seths arent good in the park or switch
what are my other options?
lizzie are ellpitical sidecut
Lizzies will be fine in powder and the park. If you're more into powder, then mount them back like 2cm or so.
Also, a lot of people like the Scratch BC in the park so you might wanna check it out. The back tip is huge like the Lizzie.
well the lizzies only come in like a 170 don't they? plus they are pretty hard to find and are a pretty soft ski. Give us some info like your height and weight and sheeeit

how r seths bad in the park and switch
iv just read reveiws saying they arnt good switch
and not for park
yeah idk how a ski can be "bad" switch - he must've read a review and the skier referred to less than average switch performance because of a mounting point or something.. mounted too far back?

at my hill lots of people rip park on seths. i duno where u heard they were bad for park
yea but he isnt gonna be able to take some got's in the park
Stop the hate people NS is here for love
East side, west side fuck it smokin up on that peace coast niggas
its tough overall finding a fatty ski for the park too. maybe stick with a park ski wit ha sub 90mm waist. utah pow can be skied with 85mm waist skis.
its mainly for all mountain and backcountry
but i wouldnt want them to be super bad in park
and just because alot of people use them in the park
doesnt mean anything
your a bitch
TWIN TIP MAFIA
Skis that are mounted far back are harder to ski switch, but so are skis that have much wider tip than tail. They are tougher for the same reason, you are lugging a big tail end behind you when you ski switch.
If you want a fat ski in the park, there aren't too many options. Lizzy is the fattest park ski around. If you want to take the width down a bit (to the 90 range) you have a lot more options: Scratch BC, Chronic Blend, Big Trouble, ARV, etc. Of those, a lot of people like the way the Scratch BC performs in the park. It's tip and tail are very close in dimensions for a big ski.
he only weighs 120 though. but i gues ur right, the bacons are really soft
owning both bacons and lizzies i would definiteley say DO NOT get bacons when your that size. turing them will be a task and they dont shred the groomed with as much agility and steez as the lizzies. i would get lizzies if i were you dude they are seriously the best all around ski i have ever ridden. from parks and pipes to groomed runs to bc cliff drops and powder shredding, they can do it all. seriously, get lizzies. peace

There's no honor in taking that after school job at Mickey Dee's, honor's in the dollar, kid
They aren't that soft, not noodle soft like you would think from reading what people on here say.

at 5-7 120 pouns, the 172 lizzies would be perfect. They are designed to ride like a snowboard, so they should be a little shorter than typical skis
I would definitely recommend the Scratch BC WRS. I got a set this year and they rip in pow and I took a trip to breck and found them to be better than my two year old FS in the park. They are light and agile in the air and have good flex for everything. Great carving as well.
ya i was thinking maybe the jpjuliens
and another thing is idk how my parents would feel having a naked woman on my skis
idk though i really like the lizzies but i dont want to make a bad decision
Just a warning on the JPvsJuliens, they are great for powder but not good in the park. If you go to the Armada website, they have a chart where they rank each ski in each condition on a scale of 1 to 10. Since they are rating their own product, they rate them all very high, but even so, they give the JPvsJulien the LOWEST rating of any ski in their lineup in the park.
freeskier says they are ok inbounds guess not park?
dude i can believe you would let the "naked girl" ruin your purchase of the lizzies. jesus son.
