Well, somehow I managed to luck out and end up with about the only girl I've ever met in San Antonio who loves to ski. She's an expert skier, but she is tired of the typical rental fare. I'd love to buy her a pair of Volkl Kiku's or Salomon Ladies, so she can shred the pow with me this winter, BUT before plunking down that kinda cash toward a pair of lady skis, I was hoping she could try some first to see if she even likes the twin-tips or rockered skis.
I've had no problem finding Gotama's and such for me to demo, but have never seen "Lady" skis at the slope-side rental shops. I'm sure the skis are pretty much the same, except for the graphics and the lengths, but I'm thinking the women's skis' shorter lengths might be more appropriate for a light-weight woman like her. She's about 5'8 and MAYBE around 120. She's pretty thin.
So my question is how hard (or easy) is it to find lady twin-tips to demo? FWIW, she and I are planning on going to Big Sky together this season.
