I'm a 14 year old boy and I'm 5'8" and weigh about 125 pounds. I live in New York and I ski some on the east coast but mostly ski out west, and i go to jackson hole and whistler more than anywhere else. I am an advanced mountain skier, and i ski a little bit of park, so im really looking for an all mountain twin tip. what would you recommend and what size should i get?
Yo dude I live on the ice coast too and I'm skiin the opus as my everyday ski which is even wider than the bacon so what does that tell ya?....next years bacons are like a cross between last years bacons and a chronic crypto.....it's purposely designed as a one ski quiver....if you want an all mountain ski that will kill it in crud but still have the float you need for out west...the bacon is a real deal option....
Plus if you go any skinnier than next years bacons and you ski mostly out west your gonna be fightin to float....won't be impossible but it won't be optimal either...maybe you should do a little research on them or a similar ski....but if your mostly skiing out west I'd def be lookin at a 100+ underfoot...shoot even livin in ny I would be lookin at somethin that big...unless if course your a strictly park rat type.
I took last years bacons down a monster steep and long mogul run at the canyons in Utah....It's important to know that I used to ski moguls amateur when I was younger so it's not that I'm claiming it's a miracle ski for moguls....but anyway I did that run with a chick who skis moguls exclusively and another buddy who was pro and still skis moguls and skis on mogul skis....I beat both of them to the bottom by like a minute and a half on the bacons...that's no bs....that ski friggin killed it and given my history that's usually a test I do on a new ski anyhow...my opinion is regardless of what a ski is designed to do, if it can rock moguls it can do anything....next years bacons are even narrower and have more sidecut for carving the hardpack....jus sayin...I'd def look into it cause I'm certain it would be perfect for ya...plus there's a shorter one too but I think with your hieght it may be too small.
Line Blend 173, K2 Kung Fujas 169( I don't know, maybe Fujas's sizing isn't good for you) and Rossi S3. I think 100mm wait will be good for you. I don't know much about bindings but I can advice marker Griffon's or Griffon schizo's for K2 and Marker Jester's for Line blend's.
Id say Line Blends are probably the best option for you. Obviously youre not competing in moguls, so the waist issue shouldnt be significant. Check out the Volkl Bridges. A little skinnier, so not great out west, but it should be fine for NY (Former NY skier).
