Nordica Wild Belle?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've been doing a lot of ski research as I am looking to buy a new pair of skis. I've never owned any skis before so I feel sort of lost.

 

I've been skiing for 15 years, but off and on. I am 5'5" and 135 lbs. I ski in Colorado. I would consider myself an advanced intermediate skier. I don't like moguls or deep powder. I like to ski fast, and usually stick to harder blues or easy blacks. I sometimes go through the trees, and I like to find small jumps when I can. I've started exploring terrain parks for a few of the jumps and I'm looking to try rails and boxes (but I'm not looking to get very extreme or anything, as I get injured easily).

 

I'm thinking of getting the Nordica Wild Belles in 162cm. It sounds like the best fit for me. But again, I feel sort of lost and I'm just going off what I've read.

 

Any opinions or suggestions?

I am 5'8 and 140. I also ski in Colorado and have had the Wild Belle's in 170 for the past 2 years. I probably ski more bumps than you . I just felt the 170's were not quite enough ski at higher speeds. I don't ski all that fast but did not like how these skis felt at higher speeds. They were great in the bumps and crud. I prefer the Nemesis and Helle's Belles.

If you can wait, Nordica puts on a great women's day at Loveland in early winter. If you can't wait, I think the Loveland rental shop has some of the women's line to demo.

Thanks, I will wait and check out the Nordica women's day at Loveland! It looks like they have one coming up on March 6th!
