Smear butter all over the park with the Armada Halo 2 Ski. This is a poppy and predictable park ski that's ideal for experts who press everything in sight and beginners who want something a little more forgiving. The 2 maintains its 5-dimensional sidecut and EST Park Rocker, but gets an upgrade with a wider footprint, for added versatility.
EST Park Rocker utilizes rocker at the tip and tail and the largest area of positive camber underfoot to maintain balance and give you predictability on the hill. Hybrid Double Zone Core is a wood core with two high-density wood stringers to stiffen longitudinal flex and two ABS layers laid alongside the core to increase torsional rigidity. To achieve the ultimate balance of reduced swing weight, increased durability, and powerful edging, Armada crafted the Halo with AR50 Construction that uses cap construction in the tip and tail and sidewall underfoot. The AR50 Sidewalls increase torsional rigidity, which translates into powerful edge hold, and the Laminate Matrix layup provides further reinforcement above and below the core so you can ride the Halo hard. CK Stringers add to tail durability while giving this ski pop essential for haggard jumps and ollieing onto rails, and the S7 Base glides fast and maintains speed between rails and jumps and on long in-runs. Armada widened the waist of the last year's Halo ski by about 10mm (92-95mm), so it feels stable on rails, forgiving when you take a landing a little too deep, and nimble enough to make quick edge-to-edge movements in the pipe, but can also play in all-mountain terrain.
Halo 2 - You’ve seen Phil Cassbon and Mike Hornbeck continue to push the sport with creative style. One footed grinds, nollies, and shuffles. Halo 2 thrives as an easy to turn all-mountain / park ski. EST Park Rocker reduces hangs ups while jumping, and skis the entire mountain like a narrower JJ. Halo 2 is perfect for learning your first switch 180 or polishing your Switch Double Cork 10.

I would choose these skis. Fun enough to take all over the mountain, but at home in the park, the Halo 2 is a progressively designed terrain park destroyer.
