I am looking for some twin tips that can ride all mountain, and the park. I am a beginner in the park but advanced all mountain. I ski on hardpack most of the time. Any suggestions, looking for something on the CHEAPER side.
Pretty much all twin tips can ski all mountain well but usually the edges get really dull so they don't seem that great and we need more info about skiier level, where you ski, and more before we guess a good ski for you
my first pair of twin tips were the dynastar 6th sense disorders. I couldnt do anything but a 180 when i first rode them and i felt they were a great transitional ski. when i was done with them i was able to nosebutter 5 of the knuckle with them so for a stiffer ski they were pretty great
The K2 Domains are really nice skis for all mountain but a little more park than all mountain. I have a pair and i love them. Also look for Line Chronics, they have a camber under foot but still solid in the park.
I started freestyle with Faction's prodigy. They're 98underfoot, never skied a twin that carves this well since, absolutely kills everything in crud/slush/pow/groomers, quite jibby too, which makes them forgiving in the park. They are perfect for jumps (I really like the feel of fatter skis in the park). The only downside is that if you focus solely on rails and do them all season, the probably won't last more than a full season. That being said, if you're starting freestyle like I did, I still threw a lot of boxes at them, took them urban skiing 3 times, and had my fair amount of rail done on them. They just had an edge break after almost 2 seasons on them.
If you're looking to go in the park once everyday and still be able to bomb down groomers without washing out, to ski some pow and kill it pretty much everywhere in any snow conditions, best ski out there. If you get last season's they shouldn't be too pricy. They haven't made any changes to it this season either.
Otherwise, if you're looking more for a park ski that will allow you to ski some groomers once in a while, but focused mainly on park skiing, as said k2 can be a good option.
