I have been looking for a new ski for my daughter as she has drastically outgrown her Rossie "kiddie" skis. She is tall and thin...5'7" and 105 pounds and has been skiing since she was 4 years old. I would classify her a level 6/7 skier and although we ski primarily in the NE we do go out west one of two times a year. We have skied in Whistler, Lake Tahoe and Colorado and plan on going to SLC this coming January. She likes to ski mostly on piste but does like to venture off of it ocassionally. She is not a daredevil by any stretch but can be somewhat aggressive.
So yesterday I am at a local ski swap and came upon a pristine pair of Head Monster i82 liquidmetal skis in 150cm size. The bindings are a Tyrolia integrated binding system D8. I think they are a 2007 model because of the color...I have attached three pictures below to this thread. The skis dimenstions are 120-80-106.
I really bought these skis because I actually remember looking at these a few years ago and remembered all the good ratings. I also got them for a steal.....$175 for the skis and bindings. Again the skis are basically new (used once I was told) and actually has the original price tag on them...$899! It seemed like truly too good a deal to pass up.
My fear is a bought a ski that will be too much for my 105 pound daughter to handle right now. I like they are a bit wider underfoot but these are not woman's skis so I am fearful that she will be overmatched. I guess I could always hang onto them for when she is older or just sell them again on eBay, etc. I know I would at the very least get my money back!
Thanks in advance for the help!
