I have been skiing for 13 years and would consider myself an expert skier. I can basically ski anything except for park/pipe. I am confident hitting all sizes of jumps, ive just never done tricks off them. This year I would like to start hitting the park regularly. I am 6 ft 3 and 170 Ibs and I currently ski 187cm Volkl Karmas. I am wondering what the best ski for me to buy to start hitting the park. I want something fairly soft and fun, price doesn't really matter.

i saw what must have been a 60 year old woman with freestyle skis the other day. needless to say she was a pussy and wasnt hitting anything. -ender
i bought chronics last year and loved them they were so stable, it was hard skiing pow with them but everything else they just killed. I found them be a little on the stiff side. for reference i am 6'1 and weighed 155 last winter and had 176cm.
ok if your looking for something soft, don't get walls. and i think at your height/weight, you're gonna find invaders kinda noodly and short.
i'd get something with a medium flex. i'd say either atomic punxs, rossi scratch ghettos or maybe AR6s. and whatever you get, get the longest length they come in (as long as its a park ski). your gonna mount them close to center so they won't feel long like your karmas.
