actually, i am a gear junky. and buying her new skies is a perfect excuse for me to get geeky on some new skis.
she is 5'10" tall, 150i lbs. she has been skiing her whole life and is smooth, steady and controlled, but not fast. he like to be slow and steady but with good form. currently she is on K2 one luvs. they are fine for groomers, but are heavy as trucks and not the best in anything over 12''. She wants something that can be all mountain, light to carry, easy to drive, forgiving but can handle fresh pow. she is with the kids a lot and is not interested in trees, bumps or crazy off piste stuff. i suspect that once she jumps on something a little wider with some rocker, she will dump the K2, so these need to be a one quiver ski.
we ski Tahoe (Northstar, Squaw and Heavenly.), so need to deal with sierra cement and chopped up snow.
she is not picky, but hates all the f*cked up clown graphics and other stupid stuff, other then that, happy wife, happy life.
help me Obi-wan you're my only hope.
