Hi all. So my gf is riding on some ancient carving skis like 10cm shorter than her and while she says she wants to get more into skiing, she’s pretty timid (comfy on blues but trees/blacks are a decided effort) and I think the sticks are holding her back. She really wants to learn and get better.
Looking at the line pandora 94 as a solid but light and maneuverable ski for her (with a killer deal). We’re on the west coast so generally softer snow and the occasional bit of pow. She’s contemplating a frame binding so she could dabble with touring in the future. Thoughts?
Also in terms of size, she’s 168cm tall and if I were her height I’d go 172 for sure, but she might be better with the 165? Or is there enough rocker that the longer length would be ok even as an intermediate skier?
Side note she’s really into the honey bee graphics (and price) but I have discouraged those since she doesn’t have any plans to ride park and it wouldn’t likely help make turns any more fun, but if anyone has other thoughts on this lemme know!
