Park ski advice (selling & what size i should be riding)
background. ski in the catskills Belleayre NY , Hunter, Gore Mountain & whiteface
used to race GS in college (24 now). Got into park 2 years ago due to the
crappy weather, figured if the trails were complete poop why not fuck around in the park.
i'm 6'2" at 230-220 lbs (depends if its the start of winter or spring)
i have a pair of icelantic da nollies at 170. love them in the park but getting to the park is a pain because they dont hold an edge well . I should have gone bigger but was thinking that lighter = more air. silly me.
am i better off selling skis with the bindings or without? i figured if i wear a 295 boot would people just remount them?
i would keep my marker griffon bindings for the larger skis i get to replace them with.
dude you could ride like a 181
if your not building an atom bomb, your a pussy
You don't want a razor sharp ski edge in the park! And yeah around 180 cm sounds about right. Keep your bindings if you like them. I'd sell the skis pre season if I were you. There are usually better deals on skis preseason.
Definitely 181. Im around your size and can manage them easily.
thanks all , yeah i was dumb i didnt realize how short they would feel with centermount. but omg centermount made landing so much more clean. i never realized it could be so easy
