Have a friend that has had the same skis for years; just got back into skiing more this season and she wants to upgrade.
She has been skiing on a pair of Dynamic VR7s 148 length (unsure what year) with Solomon C509 bindings and Solomon Symbio 500 boots (yes, we know it is pretty old gear haha).
5'4" 165lbs 30 years old; intermediate to advanced type II skier (looking to improve).
She will ski almost exclusively in the Sierras. Likes to go off piste and into trees, but probably won't be sending it off features much or being on anything ultra-steep. Want it to behave on groomers, but also looking for something a little fatter around the waste for powder days. Doesn't care about skiing switch all that much.
So far I was thinking something from this list:
Nordica Enforcers (anything wider than the 88s would be okay I think)
Line Sick Days (again anything wider than the 88s)
Faction Candide 3.0
Black Crow Atris Birdie
Black Crow Daemon Birdie
Volkl revolt 95
***I know these are a lot of/different skis but I wanted to cover different bases since she hasn't had new skis in ages***
What would be her best bet out of the list above? Are there female versions of the above skis I missed? Any suggestions outside of the list? Or is the list garbage and I am looking at this all the wrong way?
Thanks in advanced guys!
