My wife wants to get back into skiing again now that our kids are starting to ski. I just got her fitted into some new boots and footbeds, and now I want to get her a new set of skis. She grew up skiing in Tahoe, but really hasn’t skied but five times or so since then. I’ve skied with her a couple times, and I think with 5-7 days under her belt she’ll be a good skier again. She can pretty much get down anything, and isn’t really scared to do so. I would definitely classify her as an intermediate skier right now though. I’m not sure she has the desire to be all that extreme, so I guess I’m looking for a good Colorado all-mountain ski for 70/30 (on/off-piste) that isn’t too demanding. She’s 5’5” and ~135lbs and a fair weather skier, so a 1-ski quiver will be good for now. I’ve done some quick research and came up with a short list, but there doesn’t seem to be much on women’s skis.
Thoughts on the following skis?
Blizzard Black Pearl
Blizzard Viva 8.0
Fischer Koa 78 or 84
Atomic Affinity Storm
Salomon Rockette 90
Other recommendations? Trying to score some good off-season discounts, if I can find them. I’m also open to older skis that I may be able to find used. Thanks!
