90-99 mm-waisted freestyle skis

You might enjoy these skis if… You generally stick within the resort boundaries, dodging tight trees, bouncing down mogul fields and popping tricks off side-hits under the chair. You grin as onlookers applaud. You’re equally keen to show off in the park. Regarding construction, a softer flex is preferred, with a mix of rocker and camber to keep your ski both nimble and stable.
