Woman's All Mountain Skis
Looking for a pair of woman's all mountain skis. Got a friend just starting a winter season in Meribel thats looking for twin tips that are good for on and off piste. Mainly on piste. She is 5'2". Any help and advice would be great.
Sorry I don't know ANYTHING about women's skis or sizing. Maybe try posting in the Lady Gabber forum section as well. If you're friend is a beginner though, shoot for a ski that covers beginner through intermediate on the charts on ski buying websites. That way she will have a ski that will last her a while through her progression in abilities. The ski should generally be on the flexier side versus stiff and have a short turn radius. Also shorter skis will be easier to turn. She should probably stick to groomed terrain until she is strong enough of a skier to go off piste; otherwise it will be a disaster and waste of your day.
I think I may have misread your post assuming your friend is a beginner by the way it was worded.
