Best Competition-Oriented Park Skis:
With the Punx, Atomic has struck an ideal balance between stiffness, stability, and pop. And it has a low enough swing weight to be really maneuverable in the air and on rails.
• Fischer Nightstick
The Nightstick is an incredibly stable and stiff park ski. Its unparalleled stability on jumps comes with a small cost in pop and a bit of additional weight, but not so much that it shouldn’t be considered a real contender in this area. (Review to come.)
The Nordica Ace (formerly called the “Ace of Spades”) has remained unchanged for the past few years, and with good reason. It’s a pretty stiff ski that is loaded with pop and is fairly maneuverable on rails and in the air.
