I am trying to decide between Volkl Aura or Volkl Kendo. I skied Aura 2 winters ago and absolutley loved them. perfect for my tyype of skiing. I was in Jackson Hole and skied groomers and powder, moguls, everything. I am a female, 5'-5', 142 lbs, expert skier, ex alpine racer, now just all mountain entertainment. i try to get out West and not ski terrain like vermont as i dont enjoy it as much.
is Volkl Kendo for men only? I read a great review online about the 2013 Kendo and was intrigued. I do like stiff skies, but Auras felt stiff enough. i just want to buy once and use them for 2-3 yrs, so I would like to buy the best possible ski for me.
also, what size would you recommend, as I cannot remember what I had rented out back in 2010. either 163 or 170.
