    All three of those are great skis. The El Rey is a great price point, but it is full camber and that is somewhat limiting these days. The Alpha 1 and the Halo have the same shape and construction, but the Alpha 1 is a lot stiffer. I would go with the Halo if I were you. At 145 lbs you will have an easier time working the Halo than the Alpha 1, and the tip and tail rocker on the Halo makes it an extremely versatile ski while still a park slayer.

    Hope that helps,
