Anyone have an opinion would bacons suit for a girl? My girlfriend isn't very experienced skiier, so I thought that good pow qualities could make variable back country conditions easier, than say basic rockered park skis. Would they still be still nimble, relatively effortless and playful on groomers and on occasional park runs? Shes between 60-67 kg don't remember, 170cm tall and shes a former gymnast with a WERY good physical fitness (resting heart rate under 50). So shes relatively strong, but not experienced in skiing.
Other suggestions for some relatively suitable ski that would work for a novice girl, but would keep up with skill progression.
Okay, so I"m an on3p fan. The J-Mo is my main ski, but ive tried others, and theyre all nice. The JMo is one of the best 50/50 (park, pow, and piste) skis on the market, or so ive heard. However, it only has a 96 waist. THis works just fine in powder, but I'm not really hanging out in the ridge region a whole lot. If your really demanding more float, try something like the Jeffrey. It's a combination of the Caylor and the JMo, with 108 waist for more pow performance, but also has a bigger camber for more pop, while the Jmo doesnt have as much of a waist, and the Calor not as much pop. It's also pretty jibby, so if your hitting the trees or something it'll help you out there. I think one of it's few drawbacks is how it performs on cruddy snow. So if you just spend most of your time in pow or the park.. I think it'd be a good fit.
If anyone has corrections to what I said... call me out cuz I'm really not super experienced. I've just read a lot lol.
