Best park/ pow skis to get
I'm looking for a ski that is good for both park and pow
HG Junkyard El
Duret Monstre Fat (probably the best park option tbh)
one ski that won'r break the bank and is versatile is the K2 Shreditor 102. Better park than pow ski, but can get it done if there is some fresh snow. look for anything in the 100-108mm range
Surface outsider/one life if you can find a pair
I would highly recommend getting a ski for each. You don't have the money? Here is what you should do. Get a pair of park skis with bindings for under $200. A pair of park skis won't last much more than 100 days if you are hitting rail every run. So you might as well get a pair that has 75% life left for a 75% discount. Then you get a pair of pow skis that you really want. When you get those good snow days you need a proper ski to really enjoy them. I went with Sir Francis Bacons back in 2012 for $360 and they had a dozen pow ski days on them. I have been treating them with respect and they are still kicking hard. Tons of days left on them and I am only going to replace them in the next season or two just because I can finally afford it.
Kartel 108, Line Blend, Faction CT 3.0
vishnu just put out a 106 which they say is a great park ski. i bought some to be my all mountains. look up the product video on Vishnu freeski. the 88 underfoot is a super fun jibby ski but handles everything decently well i and I used that all last year. super durable too. didn't get a single core shot and rode them super hard
Id say it depends on how deep the pow you're consistently goin to be able to ride is should play a pretty big role in what you're lookin for in a ski but Im sayin go with the Jskis Allplay, I know they are a lil bit on the pricier side of things you will not be disappointed. I live in the east coast and they worked wonderfully as a one ski quiver. They preformed in the park like nothing else I've rode before and could handle up to 12" of pow with ease. You can't beat the warranty either, after about 100 days on em the edge started to split away from the base near the tail and within a week J got back to me with a code to order a new pair of Allplays so even if you do end up skiing em into the ground by the end of the season chances are youll get hooked up with another pair.
