tskis309ok so this is my first post on here so bear with me. i just joined my colleges ski team (east coast) and need some help finding a good pair of skis. I plan to focus on park but will be competing in racing as well. the only caviot is i can only afford one pair. so i think i need a stable park ski with a really good edge. some skis ive been looking at are the line chronics, arv 96, and revolt 95. if yall think any of these would work as a park ski that could also maybe hold its own in races or know any better options please lmk. thanks !
edit: i have been skiing pretty much my whole life just always rented so on the intermediate/advanced side. not as experienced in the park tho if that helps

No such thing. People will tell you “yeah this will work for both blah blah blah” but they’re lying. A. What sort of racing are you doing B. How did you get on to a team that competes in freestyle events with 0 experience (genuine question) C. No skis exists that will allow you to be any sort of effective at both, you have to choose. 90% of park skis today will fold immediately under the forces of a race course if you truly are an advanced skier. If you’re not, twins will be fine since you’re not driving them like you would a race ski anyway. The only ski that I can think of that I would even think about skiing a race course on (for the simple reason that it wouldn’t immediately fold up and send me over the handlebars) is the Fischer Nighstick. Stiff, full camber, and the only ski stiff enough for me that I know I can somewhat drive from the tips.
