I haven't bought a new pair of skis since before I had kids - 10 years ago. Things have changed so much that now I'm lost! I never used to buy women's skis, but it seems that now they're a good idea to try. That's one question, but the main one is what ski is good for someone who mostly skis in Vermont, is a small woman (5'1", 115lbs), and likes to ski mainly bumps and trees? Last year I demoed some Volkls and they were too stiff to carve in the bumps with, I also tried a Nordica that they recommended and it was just not good - I think it was meant for intermediate skiers. Anyway, I used to always be a K2 girl - my current (very old) pair of skis is the K2 Mach and I really like them. Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated!
Need a recommendation for good bump and tree ski

Northern Vermont and/or more tree/powder- Blizzard "the Crush" 156cm
Southern Vermont and/or more bumps and hardpack - Blizzard Black Pearl 159cm
both of which are fantastic off piste skis for the east coast. Each have really good edge grip while not being over bearing and overly stiff.
