JEWmanjiJust do the old "oops I took the wrong run and accidentally ended up in a bunch of pow babe sorry"
mantoastAnother note any females recommend a good all mtn ski for a lady that rips the runs? Been looking at armadas arvw's.
dizzydizzyrough, id get her some pow skis for xmas though. in this situation id just ski pow in the morning and meet up with her at like 11 am and just ski with her the rest of the day if you can swing it. pow days are sick, but skiing with friends is just as important, and skiing with and being patient with your gf is the most important
dizzydizzyget the line pandoras. i ride with a lot of girls (former CMAC racers) that ski them every day at crystal mountain regardless of conditions. they absolutely RIP like a slalom ski, and kill it in all conditions. probably go for the 95 underfoot, the girls i ride with ski that ski every day, even in deep snow
LynxNationSo I get that not everyone is the same but, as a girl who rides with the guys everyday this kind of bums me out you don't think she can hang. Why not rent her a pair of wider skis from Tline for the day? She might be better than you. And if she doesn't want that then let her do her thing, let her skis groomers and meet her at the bottom. Racers usually have pretty good skill sets to transfer out of the course.hey guys thanks for info on the Pandora, I've seen you ripping them around Emily! May definitely be interested when you mount the new sticks! We rode awhile back with crud for snow she rode some fatty praxis's and kept up well on the groomers she couldn't tell me if her skis were cambered or had rocker though I was like whaaa?? She says she's too nervous/ scared to go do tree runs but my goal is to get her all over the mtn!
If you wanna get her something of her own I have the Line Pandoras and they do the job, a lot wider than a race ski so it might be a big transition but they are pretty maneuverable. Might even sell them to you if I mount my new pow skis.
addie.I mean it looks like you already solved your problem, but unless she has a complete lack of chill she shouldn't care if you want to go ride pow. If she's from the PNW she should understand how rare these days are. Side note idk why she wouldn't want to go ski some pow even in race skis?? Speaking from experience it isn't that bad except for you kinda have to ride backseat
shin-bangWhenever I do a jib run with the bois the gf hates it and we end up meeting at the bottom and shes pissed. Thank goodness she has all mtn pow skis. Yesterday we shredded some pow together and it was amazing.
So op, Meeting her at the bottom would not be a good idea :/ rent her some pow skis or tell her to buy some for future pow days
.lenconYou must teach her how to Jib. What's gonna happen later this season when there's no pow and we need to jib but she wants to ski moguls?
shin-bangim trying. i was teaching her how to pop and jump off a couple small small cliffs and trying to get her to boost off moguls. so shell get the jib life eventually ;)
