my advice is to get men's skis.. women's skis are virtually the same but with a different top sheet, a special name and a higher price... I can't really give specific reviews except on skis I've tried so I'll say this.. I love my atomic punx, i loved my arv's when I had them a few years ago.. I love my lizzies even though they are floppy as fuck, loved my k2's and i've pretty much hated every salomon ski i tried (although that was in the foam core days). just get an affordable park ski and if you aren't shredding that hard it will probably suit you well no matter what it is! good luck.. don't fork out a shit load of money for something unnecessary!
