My wife is a beginner...she has been on the hill four or five times and is finally getting over her fear. We have been renting skis previously and actually bought her a pair at the local Labor Day sale. This turned our bad as the salesman sold her something way over her head and she had a lot of trouble controlling them. We just returned those skis last week and now need to buy something.
We are looking at something cheap/used that would be perfect for her. She has no aspirations of doing anything beyond green runs...although I am hoping to get her on some gentle blues (like Peak 7 at Breck). She is 46 years old and does have MS, but that does not slow her down currently. She does get tired easily so we need something easy to turn.
She found these two skis on Craigslist and wanted me to ask my ski friends on the forum which ones might be the best for beginners. They are both rated Beginner to Intermediate on many websites.
Dynastar Exclusive Sensation 2010
Head Shape 01 2010
We would be buying the 148cm in the Dynastar or the 149cm for Head.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
