Instagram may lead to believe otherwise, but we do get high pressure cycles here in Utah. I picked up these to be able to play with when it inevitably pops blue and everything's been tracked out and for night skiing. I don't have a ski at this width or length so it'll fit well into my quiver. I'm 5' 10" and got them at 176 cm. I probably could have gone with the 181s but felt like they'll be a better beginner park ski for me in the shorter length. Armada's a brand I strongly trust, particularly when it comes to park skis. I also looked at their THalls but favored these over them for their versatility outside of the park. Looking for to getting out on them next season!
