i switched from snowboarding to skiing this past winter. i spent most of my time in the park, but clearly i want to work on my technical skiing more and some pow. therefore i will be concentrating mainly on such next season.
i currenltly ride scratch pros as they were free. but what does everyone suggest i purchase for next season?
i am very little and very light and of course still learning! what does everyone think i should look into buying for my 06-07 season? so the real question...since i want to practice in both park and pow next season, is...for a learner, what are the best skis to learn on for such things...again im little. verly little. im 21 but im 95 lbs and 4'11.

i would say the female version of the foil(i forget the name), or the regular foil.. there the same ski(but u wood prob like the female graphic more)... there wide enough for pow, and have enough stability for a girl your size to do pretty much anything... but there also very light weight for a ski of their width.... basically I would say its almost perfect for you, wide yet light and pretty soft...

I'm 5'1" and ... definitely no 95, but I spent the last year learning on Celebrity Minis, and they were awesome. Really soft, and floaty enough, and they were a 153, which would be bigger than you. They're not that durable, though; black shit came off my bases every time I waxed them, and I took a huge chunk out of the topsheet like, the sixth day I rode, exposing a delightful foam core. But they're soft and poppy and fun.
if your serious bout wantin to learn all mountain skills, go head high. its just like a rule of thumb. and im gonna second the scarlets. the foils are a pretty sick lil ski, and are PLENTY wide, and light too. with some lighter bindings (ti salomons etc) youd have a sick setup. K2s are pretty heavy, the lines are fairly middle road, sal. def. the lightest. best bet for a do it all ski for sure tho
Your skis sound like a good choice for you, but if you are getting something new I would look hard at line, lineskis.com I have tried about everything, but voikl and rossi. I think the karmas look to heavy and stiff for a lighter skier in the park though. I have had extremely good luck with line so far. Also, I would look into some light bindings. Despite skiing being a gravity sport, does make a difference, especially in the park. Stay away from marker. and solomon. And if you are serious about trees, cliffs, and pow I would get a fairly wide ski. The float better and are more stable. I think the celebrity looks amazing. And what about line's youth skis? If you think the celebrity is too big you could probably get the celebrity mini and save a ton of money.
i think its cause it stunts their growth with all the activity and the strength/muscle they build. I think its the same reason why they dont want you to lift much until you get full grown, or near it, otherwise it stunts your growth. Holson, if you know phil or tony giampa they're a perfect example of that.
missys are a tad heacy. definately check out hte salomons...their construction makes for a super light sky, and the Foils are pretty wide ish for a park ski...demo that once the season starts up

SURFACE SKIS I believe they're coming out with a woman ski and will be made for park but yet amazing in powder, since they are made in utah, and dope graphics. Also you'll be supporting a really awesome company.
