I saw steve stepp riding the bikini amplid alot this year which is technically a girls ski. It was rated one of the highest in the freeskier buyers guide last year so its no wonder why he would ride these. I dont think there is any difference between mens and womens skis except for the lengths of the skis. (mens typically run in longer sizes) I recently bought a pair of surface my time's which is a girl ski bc i got a really good deal on them. I'm only about 5'7'' and 165 pounds so i figured it would be okay. Is there really any difference between mens and womens skis other than the lengths?
