I am currently looking to buy my girlfriend some skis for Christmas. I am a snowboarder and don't know much about skis and their brands. This would be her first pair of skis because I am tired of waiting in the lines for ski rentals are resorts with what seems to me lackluster gear in my eyes. She is 5'3 and an intermediate skier. She likes to go on blues and an occasional black with me. I was looking at skis that are all-mountain around 70% groomed and 30% off-piste. I was looking to spend around 500 or so on skis and bindings. I know some of the ski brands like k2, fischer, volkl rossignol, and salomon. I would greatly appreciate any feedback and opinions.
Two of the current options I have been looking are:
-Fischer Koa 73 skis + V9 My Style Bindings -499
-K2 SuperSweet Skis + Marker ER3 10. Bindings - 499
and length 153.
Thanks in advance for any help.
