Volkl Bridges, Rossi Scimitars, Salomon 2012's or Line Blends?
Specifically what is a better all mountain ski that is playful in the park yet can maintain strong stability off-piste and in powder.
blends. I have them and love them! they can hit powder and smash through it and they are soft enough so throw them around in the park and butter. they are a truly great ski
k2 kung fujas bro. i used them every day this season for powder and for park competition
I've reaserched this a bunch! After a long time of concideration I decided that the blend and scimitar were the best two and couldn't really decide between the two. So I just chose the scimitar cuz it's cheaper.
nobody is going to be able to give you useful advice without knowing more about how big/heavy you are, how/where you ski and ideally what you have liked/disliked in skis in the past.
Of the 4 personally I'd pick Blends with Scimitars as a second choice but I like soft skis.
Rossignol Scimitars. I skied them for most of the year this year, and have never had more fun on a pair of skis. the full rocker makes them incredibly quick to pivot, whether that be on snow or on a rail, yet on edge they can rip like you'd expect from a rossi. I think the best way to capture the versatility of those skis would be to describe my favorite run of the season:
Hop off the lift at Brighton, ski 4-5 tight turns in the trees, in fresh snow, then out into an open but ungroomed trail and shred Super-G turns in crud, pop a 180 over a roller, and ski switch at mach holy shit straight into the park, the skis leaving nothing to be desired anywhere in that run.
I really heard good things about the Volkl bridges, have you skied on them.
