ARVw is new this year. So there aren't any real skier reviews yet. It comes in only 165cm length. Has a 89mm waist. Doesn't turn that quick. This is a all mtn more pow kinda ski. The dif between ARV and ARVw is the ARVw has an ultra light core. It is made for light skiers....usually the ladies. A finese sk / skier . Don't know ur gfriend's weight height, athletic ability but for general sking and groomers and starting out consider the Cantika by Armada - more durable, turms easier. For a more park/pipe and hardpack all-mtn with more pop - get the ARW good to about 8 inches of fresh snow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNtscP_LFt4 crappy Cantika video review. http://www.armadaskis.com/i/videos/Product_ARW.mov or go to youtube and search armada skis 2009 reviews and chk out ARV's etc...
You say that the ARVw is more all mtn/powder ski, but on armadaskis.com it says its more of a park/groomers/pipe ski (10 out of 10 points), and not that much big mountain/powder (only 7 out of 10 points). Im not questioning your knowledge, Im just wondering where youve gotten your info from :P..
And my girlfriend is a good skier (she has skied since she were 5 or something, but not twin-tip), and is very strong.. So i dont think she'll have a problem skiing a "difficult" ski..
All replyes are very welcome :)
