Whats it like riding a wider ski in the park
Ive noticed a trend towards wider park skis like people riding 98 ands even 102s, how to they ski compared to an 88 or 92 rail and jump wise, do you find more stability and so on, super interested!
larger landing platform, more stability, but heavier. Not worth going over 98mm underfoot unless you plan on using it all mountain too.
Plan on landing with some serious authority if they have any stiffness. Also just more secure feeling imo. If you ride blends i have no comment other than butters and smearing
Super fun for buttering and stuff, larger platform for landings and more surface area on rails too. They can be a bit heavy at times but fun non the less.
Wide and soft. I used a pair of kung fujas in the park and it was the most fun I've ever had skiing. Dont expect to do many switchups though.
