Blends? Soul riders? Something similar? Need help
Looking for info on what skis to get! Something buttery and fun in the trees... small park stuff, but mostly natural small jumps. So probably a 70% all mountain 30 Park. Any ski suggestions help! Lake Tahoe area skiing

Blends and Soul Riders are very similar skis in that they are both quite soft and easy to ski. They are both more suited to softer snow and less aggressive, lighter skiers who enjoy buttering and jibbing. The Armada Arv 96 would be a very playful ski as well but with more backbone so it's abilities outside the park, on harder snow and at speed would be much better the the Blends or the Soul Riders. Another very good ski similar to the ARV 96(stiffer underfoot but playful tip and tail) would be the Volkl Revolt 95 which is a great ski for the money.
From what you've described of your style, I'd check out the Sir Francis Bacons. I've been on he Bacons for 2 years now and I haven't had more fun on ski. It's my everyday ski out here in Colorado and I had a blast on it in Tahoe last winter.
if this is of any relevance, the Nordica soul rider 87 (124-87-114) is bombproof from what I've seen on rails/park so far.
