I'd don't see on Atomic's site where the 10.ex is coming in shorter models. 184 cm appears to be the shortest. Not sure about tele 10.ex's. Maybe they are shorter.
I skied the 10.ex last year in the powder at Grand Targhee and also in the spring mush at Mammoth ( very late April) and it is a great ski, but I'm a large person and ski the 198cm.
I'll also ski the G-40 (190cm) and the G-41 (198 cm) which is a better ski on the packed and in the chop. The 10.ex is a very very light ski given its size. It is a very quick ski also taking into account its size.
Given you girl friends size I'd recommend the 9.22 as the first ski in the Atomic lineup for anyone to consider. A great great ski. I've ski it for about 3 years and have only heard that each year it has gotten better and better. Mine are the older black ones when the 9.22 was Ski of the Year (Dec 98)
Just my thoughts, take them for what there worth. Email @ Dorothybks@aol.com
