The Geisha was a ski that I liked the flex and feel of at the store so I decided to take it out for a day of demo time. I was pleased to find that my instincts about the flex were dead on. The Geisha is one of those skis that is wide enough, with enough flex and early rise tip that is can be a woman's powder specific ski, but don't sell it short when the terrain is chopped up, and its time to take the groomers back to the lodge.
The Geisha loves it when you challenge her with chop and powder, but she won't let you down if you call on her to be your one ski quiver.
When I told this to another Bear, she decided to take the demo out for a day, and found herself buying a pair.
You really should try the Geisha, and be prepared to experience the fun factor!
