Slalom Ski Choice for Wife

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi.  My wife is looking to step up her carving game and wants to get a pair of slalom skis for use on our short, icy hills in Michigan.  She's a pretty strong intermediate/advanced skier - around 5'4", 125lbs.  Current skis are Volkl Aura in 156cm, Rossignol S7w in 168cm, and Atomic SX-9 in 150cm.  I found a good deal on a pair of 09/10 Fischer Worldcup SLs in 150cm.  In this length, it is considered the Junior II level ski.  Would this be a good choice for her or should we be looking at a true women's 155cm ski since her skiing has really improved this past season?

A true 155 SL in a flexier brand - Rossignol, Volkl, or Dynastar come to mind - would probably grow with her better. Entirely appropriate for Michigan; where do you guys ski?

Thanks for the advice, beyond.  We're in SE Michigan so we ski Pine Knob or Mt. Holly on the weekends and will take a trip out west and up north once or twice a year.
