    Hi
    I am looking to buy some new all mountain skis that can also be used for mogul racing for my teenage daughter. Any suggestions? Was thinking maybe k2 missconducts?

    Although you can ski moguls on all mountain twin tips, for competition moguls she will need real mogul skis. Mogul skis are narrow and ski like old fashioned slalom race skis. She will be judged on correct form, weight on the fronts of her boots, carved turns, feet together, as well as speed. For speed she will need to do very quick turns which all mountain skis don't do as well. I would recommend picking up a pair of last years skis at a discount price.

    @Elaine is absolutely right. You're going to want a shorter ski with a mean sidecut and much narrower under-boot than the 85 the missconducts are. If she's interested in park and she wants to race moguls competitively, unfortunately she needs two different skis.
