Any recommendations on last years skis or this years skis would be a huge help!
The biggest problem is that there are so many awesome skis out there, its easier to narrow down some demo options and let her decide.
Are you thinking Unisex ski or Women Specific?
If you're thinking woman specific...........
Top two midfat picks: Olympia Conquer & Elan Wave Spice.
Carvers: Nordica Olympia FireFox
: & Elan Speed Magic
Of these skis, I have the Wave Spice, the Speed Magic and the FireFox in my quiver. I absolutely LOVED the Wave Spice in the spring crud. With 80 under foot, and a burly wave flex structure, there was nothing that stood in its way. You can see my review here
I got the Speed Magic because its got the same basic structure as the wave Spice, but a carver side cut, so I thought they would compliment each other.(haven't been on it yet, but can't wait)
The Nordica Olympia Fire Fox
This is the one ski that I wanted the minute I heard about it. Its the Women's version of the Speedmachine, which I skied on last winter. Let me say WOW!
Usually a ski gets good reviews and bad reviews. This is a ski that has had nothing but rave reviews! You can not go wrong if you buy her this ski!!!
Sierra Jim will be having this ski in stock. You should check with him if you're interested in this ski
