Well - back from Kicking Horse, after two days on the S90Ws in a 160 length, skiing boot - thigh deep pow at the top, perfect chord in the morning and thaw/freeze hard pack at the bottom in the afternoon - the wife's "review" of the S90W is as such
all around a very enjoyable ski, she felt that they carved fairly well on all the conditions we had. they were light, and quick, and very easy to turn. They were forgiving in the bumps, and floated in the pow beautifully. Steeps were no problem, trees were a blast. At the end of day one, she asked if we could stop at the rental shop again, to extend the rental to the next day.
Probably the highlight of the weekend, was the bottom half of a steep face, where she got, for the first time ever, the true float/surf feeling on top of the pow! The grin was ear-to-ear!
Bottom line is, she's very much looking into where she can get them locally.
While I've got a couple people in the know here - anybody know how they compare to the Salomon Geisha?
And on a tertiary note - damn those S7 woman's lines are HOT looking skis...
