CyanicenineI'd go with the Volkl Kiku then or Gotomas if she is a really strong skier, since they are just a stiffer Kiku. I'm 5'2 and ride the 170 Gotoma and there is no other all mountain ski I've ridden that comes close to being as versatile. Charges through chop, planes like a dream in pow with none of the drag you get in a hybrid camber ski, and is still narrow enough to not feel like a tank on groomers and ice. This is assuming you are skiing somewhere out west, if you are out east you probably want to get her something narrower.
