h3nry.I feel like wider skis have been getting more popular recently. Most of ON3P’s park skis are in the 95-100ish range and that’s similar to what other companies seem to be making too. I feel like in big comps such as the x games skinny skis will always be the most popular, but for park skiing as a whole I think most stuff is a bit on the wider side in the past few years.
drewju15i feel like stiffer and more durable skinny skis are the only common ones i see, a good example would be poachers, a ski that can handle itself big mtn and off booters while being small enough to swing around like a mad man on jibs

whatsamonadI don't really get the wider skis in park thing. I was used to 86 and then I went to 90 which was fine, but my Jeffreys which are 96 just seem too fat for me. It adds extra weight that doesn't feel like it gives me anything. People who ride 100+ park skis, what do you like about them?
ethanshredzHonestly I'd kind of consider the Poacher to be one of the skis that led the charge of the wider park ski movement. At the time, 85-88 was defs still the norm for what most brands were marketing as a pure park ski.
