A little help from the ladies...
So my girlfriend's season ended on a huge, overshot 180 in January last year when she blew her ACL. I would really like to think that this could have been avoided if she hadn't been using 4 or 5 yr old bindings on her older Invaders.
So here's where I'm at: She's not exactly 100% confident about getting back on her skis since the surgery and rehab were a bitch. There is no way that I am going to have a girlfriend that doesn't ski so I want to get her a new setup to get her stoked on the year.
What would you recommend? This year, she will probably ski less park (only 50% or so) but I would be an idiot not to get park skis. I'm tempted to just get the ARWs with Griffons but shit, I don't know..... What are girls riding these days? Any direction would be appreciated. Thanks.
The ARW's would be a great choice. They are an awesome park ski, but they are rated very high for all mountain as well. I haven't skied them personally but I have heard great things about them, i'm even considering getting them myself. Roxy broomstick's are supposed to be a great women's park ski as well, but ARW"s are cheaper
depends where you ski. maybe consider the arvw, a little wider and more all mountain savvy, or the roxy shazam, or the salomon lady or mai tai, or atomic elysian, etc, etc. theres a lot of skis that would kill it for her, but tough to know what shes really gonna dig..
as for bindings? i'd do fks 120s if you can get them, or peak 12s, which have one of my favorite heal/toe combinations, super safe in twisting falls which would def give her some confidence
