Skis that allow more speed.
Skis that will leave me yet ever further in the dust.
She: Advanced level (7/8). 5'4" 145 lbs. Age 56. Current ski is a 06/07 Metron 9 in a 157. Loves the M9 (except for the weight), but from the way she talks she may have found its limit (for her). Something lighter than the M9, but still decent at crud busting.
She hates the demo process, so to narrow the field some ideas would help. She does primarily groomers, but likes the ungroomed/sierra style powder also. I'd call her 70/30 kinda gal. Since we live in the Sierras, that's where we usually ski.
