Read the Review Transcript: Evan here. Just got off the Armada Alpha X. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's going to be a good ski for your advanced-intermediate all the way up to advanced park skier or all-mountain skier. Really thrives on the hard-packed. Could definitely go into softer snow since it does have a little early rise in tip and tail. But definitely going to be that fun little jib stick for your park rider.
