Very Pretty, but does anyone know, can it dance?

Hmmm, tell you what Lisa...I'll demo them for K2 for the season and I'll report back to you. Think they'd buy that deal? Actually I was looking at the Crossfires from K2....ok I'm just drooling about getting new skis. I wish I was sponsored lol!

If I decide I like them, I'm going to have to buy lots and lots of raffles at ESA!


Lisa, same name and same ski? That would be a bit precious, don't ya' think?

Did you see the Luv Bug. I want those for my daughter, but the shortest they come is 76 cm. Need to find something shorter, but with equally cool topsheets.

I've been eyeing up those skiis as well. It seems like every season I pick out a few that could be my dream ski, but then never follow through with any demoing.

I've thought that if my skiis get lost or delayed by the airlines when we go to Tahoe next month that would be the perfect opportunity to try some new ones out.

Of course in my dreams I'll win big at the casinos, and after spending a few days trying out different pairs, I'll find the ski that transforms me into a ski goddess and then I'll have them shipped home.

SJCZAR, that was hilarious! Of course, those things are so darn pretty you can feel like a ski Goddess just looking at them. Believe it or not, it's hard to find place to demo them in the right length in Summit County.

If they have them at Stowe when I go I will demo them and let you know.

But I don't know, I think would be guilty of Hubris!!

Actually, you may want to look at the Phat Love for the powder days. Add to your quiver, give yourself choices.

PM Nolo. She's a K2 rep at her area. She's reported on how much she likes the T-Nine series before.

Last year my then girlfriend bought a K2 T:nine (blue and white....I can't recall exact model). She's one of the best woman skiers I know: very aggressive, skis KT-22 at Squaw with no problem, skiing for decades, lives in Aspen. She thought it was the best ski she's ever been on in her life.

Well, I tried them today.
The K2 One Love is a pretty ski, and it encourages "pretty" skiing. While it's a comfortable and predictable ski, it shies away from excitement and passion. Unlike its bad girl big sister, the Burnin' Love http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=21051
the One Love is not a ski that will inspire a woman to break her own rules. On crud and uneven terrain, it will chatter anxiously, reminding you that you are crossing your own boundaries and getting into territory that is not your comfortable status quo. If you have been skiing any other women's carving ski, such as the Volant Vertex, it will feel pretty much the same. Sort of like watching prime time TV. It's smooth, it carves nicely, and it loves you just the way you are. I suppose you could buy it for its pretty graphics, but who would do a silly thing like that!
The Burnin' Love is the Gypsy to the Virgin. It wants you to be Braver in Your Body.

The Burnin' Love is to One Love as Rock and Roll and Motown is to Easy Listening and Elevator Music.

Thanks for the great reviews.

Sounds like the Burnin' Luv is the one I should try demoing. I feel like I've gained alot of confidence in the past two seasons, so I'd definitely want a ski that would make me push myself more.
