Park and Pipe Skis - Buyers Guide
Park and Pipe Skis are designed with for getting tricky. Jumps, Rails, Halfpipe, Urban, you name it. Park and Pipe skis all feature a twin tipped tail to allow for skiing backwards.
Park skis range from 80-105mm, much like their All Mountain counterparts. Park performance isn't really dictated by waist width, but can impact their performance on the rest of the mountain greatly.
Jumps & Rails
|Park & Pipe Ski Length Guide||Your Height|
|Skier Ability||Beginner||Subtract 10cm|
eg. A 173cm Intermediate skier should look for All Mountain skis around 168cm
If you are in between lengths of a certain ski, aggressive skiers should size up and cautious skiers should size down.
If you are progressing in the Park a shorter ski makes it easier, but takes away from its All Mountain performance
The Flex Profile of Park skis is an important consideration. Stiff skis are good on jumps and in the halfpipe but aren't forgiving and as playful on rails. Softer skis aren't stable and supportive on jumps but are much more fun to butter around rails and are better for progressing in the park.
