Twin tip for daughter

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Any suggestions to look at? Eastern but trips west - Female - 18, 5-6 @140 ex gate runner - not particularly aggressive now working at being more variable condition skier.. 70/30 to 50/50 (front/back) little bit in the park she says (not sure how much, more goofing around I would suspect)

 

Rossi S3/S7, Liberty Envy, Atomic Elysian's have been suggested (or better phase - I have good pricing access too) Demo is called for but snow will not be around these parts till December at best. For what ever reason she has twin tips on the brain... 

Any suggestions on a 2010/2011 or 2011/2012 

 

as always..

Thanks

 

Stephen

The S3's are always a safe bet, and hugely popular in this category.  The Atomic Elysian wow'd me when I tested it, in fact it was my #2 pick in its class, right behind the Blizzard Black Pearl.

 

Not to sound like a broken record, but you really should put the Black Pearl on that list if you can find one.  They are selling fast.

 

Hope this helps.

I realize that Bushwacker, but his title is misleading, as his post is more about a good all mountain ski with a powder bias.

But, having spent a lot of time with girls the age of his daughter, when I was a volunteer at the school back in Michigan, I see a desire for her to have skis with a cool look or twin tip appearance.

 

All the skis I' mentioned will do what he's asking.

Yep I know realize that the title was somewhat misleading - your correct I realize that being 18 and logic don't alway go hand in hand - Ultimately it is about keeping her active - 

 

I saw some of the reviews on line for the Black Pearl - I'll see if I can find a pair for her to try - Blizzard isn't rep'd much in our area - but Google is my friend as they say.. HOWEVER.. your reviews of both the Black Pearl and the Atomic Elysian seem to have the skiis more at 50/50 that 70/30 correct?

Having never skied a full rocker, I have no experience to draw upon - how well would this work on a eastern groomer run?

 

Bushwacker - anything you might suggest that would fit the bill?

I would call both of the skis mentioned - Black Pearl and Atomic Elysian - solid all mountain skis with an off piste bias.  If you had to have one ski, either of these would be a sweet choice, and both have graphics that appeal to a young(er) crowd.

 

FWIW, I helped a lot of teen's(boys and girls) find good all mountain skis when they asked for twin tips, knowing that they really just didn't want a carver that looked like their mom or dad's skis.
