My fiance and I started skiing last year. In that time I've gone at least 20 times and consider myself to be very good, I picked it up quickly and bought a pair of race skis this year. My fiance, on the other hand, hasn't picked it up as quickly as I have. We bought her skis this year so that she could get used to a pair of skis instead of getting different rentals every time we go out. We picked her up used VOLKL V1 20-20's 140cm and she still had difficulty skiing with them. She has a hard time turning and can only use the "pizza" method to turn and stop. I'm trying to find her skis that will be easier for her to learn to slide with when she turns. I did some research and ended up picking up a set of new Fischer Aspire R9's 140cm for her. They're a bit wider, and much lighter. These skis are marketed as being beginner skis. Do any of you have experience with these skis, and do you think that these will make turning easier for her? I got them for a good deal so I jumped on it and I want to make sure that they will be good for her before I mount the bindings and can't return them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
