I am a female who is 5'1 and am currently using k2 skis. I can ski anything from beginner to dblblack diamonds. I ski in the east. Thanks.

What do you like to ski:  groomed, off piste, moguls, trees?

OK, that helps, but -- confession -- I know very little about women's skis.  I've heard the Volk Kenja is a great carving ski, and can confirm that its male counterpart, the Kendo, is excellent on groomed and hardpack.  I can also report that my 13-year-old daughter loves Rossi skis.  That's the sum total of my knowledge (on this topic).  But, there are folks here who actually know skis and who, I am sure, will be weighing in to help you soon...

gosh laura, do you got to one of the big eastern hills that would afford some demo opportunities?  Do you know which k2 model you are currently skiing on?

 

I'm no expert on women's skis, but i do know my credibility in that department moved up quite a bit with my wife when i got her a demo pair of stockli rotor 74's for women; for a stockli they were surprisingly inexpensive as a demo model.  And, even better, my wife loves them as much as she loves me.  one caveat, however, it sounds as if you are a more aggressive skiier than she is in that easier black trails is where she draws the line.
