Help me find the perfect skis

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hello my name is Courtney i am almost 16 years old and I am asking for your help finding the perfect skis.

 

I am basically at slopes everyday, from opening till around 4, because i work as a ski instructor. So my mom has agreed to buy me a new pair of skis as long as they are not twin tips and i pay for half of them (so they can't be too expensive since I am on a ski instructors budget.)

 

I would consider myself an advanced ski, like to go fast, but i hate making short radius turns, but i have to in our clinics, so i need an all around great ski. I am about 5'6" and weigh about 120

 

Also it is necessary that it looks pretty, because i like it when the kids im teaching can't get over how cool my skis are. I am a big fan of rosignol skis, but i am open to anything.

 

So i need a ski thats diverse, pretty, and fast.

I'm not sure what budget you had in mind - someone I know who's similar in size to you enjoys her Atomic Cloud 9 XLT9s in 158 I believe. I think they look nice, but beauty's in the eye of the beholder.

Hmmm I don't know much about women's skis. Idk maybe check out the Line Celebrity??? Its kinda on the pricey side though so I don't know how much you are willing to spend. However as far as twin tips go Line is a pretty good choice. I ski the  Line Prophet 90s and I love them. So I don't know maybe you should see what Line has to offer. You also might be able to find some last years skis for better prices.

Also found some great deals on women's skis at Skis.com

Hope this helps!

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder but this ski has gotten rave reviews from our customers that have demoed it both for looks and performance.

Twin tip or no?  I thought you said your mom wouldn't get you a twin tip.....

You still can ski switch on other skis.....many have rounded tails that make it a little easier. 

Where are you skiing....what snow conditions?  East or West?  That may play a factor in what you choose, yes?
