Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Hi guys new to the forum and my 1st post which is of course a question.

I have decided to put an air of doubt in my mind as to what it's going to be like skiing on my 1st set of twin tips. Volkl Bash 89.

Anyway I've spent many years skiing on my Head Supershape I Titans which have been great (if a little hard work when tired)

Anyway my question is this. If I managed to only pack the twin tips how capable will they be on normal red and blacks and some of the steeper (and deeper) stuff?

Most of the day will be on piste but I am skiing switch and jumping 180s etc but I've only done this at Hemel snow dome.

Am I worring to much or will I be disappointed on the on piste performance?

Cheers

I alternate between two sets of twin tips (the fattest is 120mm) and SL and GS pure piste skis. All diffferent but all fun. As long as you adapt your style a little and get used to them you should be fine.

I’ve taken to almost exclusively skiing a twintip 106 and it’s fine. Sure it isn’t the best on a rock hard piste, but on everything else I love them.

Depends what you want to do though, if you want rail carves all over the mountain then they may not be ideal, but if they’re 90 underfoot they should still be capable (in fact the Whitedot One is an 89 that is remarkably easy to edge)

Most just enjoy the slopes but I love this 1 bar at the end of a few steep black runs Skullie
