Hi there, looking to purchase a first pair of skis for my wife. She's been skiing 5 yrs (so 5 weeks actually) and is a solid intermediate. She enjoys the mountains and skiing but is not aggressive or hugely determined to progress to expert, although she would like to become an advanced skier at least in the next year or two. We'll probably get 15-20 days skiing in this year so i thought it makes sense to buy her skis now.
She's 32yrs, 5ft 5inches, about 120-125 lbs. generally confident but gets nervous on ice and fresh snow. She hasnt quite grasped the concept of real carving yet, partly due to a slightly rigid bent fwd body position i think, and still pushes a lot of snow when she turns, doesnt have that "on rails effect" of skis carving.
Anyways i found a good deal on some 2014 162cm Salomon Bamboo with z10 bindings and wanted to know what people thought of them (there are hardly any reviews online).
Anyone demo'd these puppies? Are they the solid, versatile, confidence building intermediate-adv skis i'm looking for?
Or should I really consider something else.
