I have FINALLY convinced my wife that skiing is fun!
After last years fiasco we tried again this year with some friends, and she had a blast, we even had 2-4" of fresh - what a great day.
She has done very well and she has advanced to an intermediate skier, albeit a bit more of a cautious intermediate vs a charger.
She is going to come along with me to Kelowna and Whistler (1 week each) this year, and wants to ski a couple of days at each. I think we will invest in some lessons when we are at whistler.
What we aren't sure about is whether she should be demoing mens or lady-specific skis.
She is 5'9" 135-140lbs
I think an all-mountain type ski would be best - somewhere in the 70-78 range. Probably ~155-158 length
I was wondering about:
Volkl AC20, AC30
Dynastar Contact groove
I am not very familiar with the lady-specific skis and don't know which to even consider.
She seems to thing the graphics on the lady-specific skis are lame. (Her 2c)
Any info, or links would be great as I didn't find a thread comparing men's vs women's skis for a lady.
