Chick without Quiver...Needs Help!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
A very good friend of mine is in the market for a new pair of skis and is looking for some recommendations on what to demo. She is 42 yo, 5'9'' and 135 lbs. Level 6 or 7 now but very committed to her skiing and would like to improve. Skis 20-25 days per year mostly at Vail...60% front side, 40% back bowls. Currently has a 4 year old pair of Atomic 918's (104-64-95) that are 160's. I'm thinking she would benefit from something wider and female specific. Please let me know if you have 2-3 recommendations for my good friend to check out.

Thanks!

K2 Lotta Luvs. End of topic.

Lotta Luvs are an excellent choice, as are the Recons (very similar ski).

Rossi B2W too, probably.

Dynastar Exclusive legends for an all purpose ski. Burnin Luvs for hard pack and feeling secure at high speeds.

Another ski that is getting some Buzz is the Volkl Attiva AC3 104/76/118.
Definitely worth a look.

According to Dawgcatching, the lotta luvs are the ski of choice for his female buyers, and he's almost sold out. Get them while you can!

Thanks!

As usual...great feedback. The Bears are the Best! I'm seeing a lot of love for Lotta Luvs. The Dynastar, Volkl and Atomic's are all great suggestions. Anything else she should be looking at?

Fischer vision 76's. I have the men's version, the AMC 76, which is a fantastic ski and the women's version got good write-ups.

I'd give my vote to the LottaLuvs. I really do love these skis and I'm hankering to get a pair (demo'd them out at SugarBowl in April).

However I've promised myself that if the demo day at Attitash will have a good selection of women's skis (say the Attiva AC3, maybe a Fisher) I will do my due dilligence and try out the competitors. But I still think I'll end up with the LottaLuvs

Good luck!

The Volkl Auras might fit in very well at Vail. A woman's version of the Mantra.
I bet she would like them very much.They are an attractive ski with a lot to offer a skier of her ability and her taste for some of the less tracked areas with a good profile for front side use also.
