View Full Version : New Ski for my wife?

05-02-2007, 04:08 PM
Does anyone have an opinion on a good ski. My wife is a really good skier (intermediate/advanced) but has not tried a new ski for 10 years. She does not like change. Her boots finally ripped out and I convienced her to try something new. I don't know if they make skis specifically for women or not.

Thanks for the input.

I just purchased a Connelly Concept F3 from overtons. It arrived today. The ski and bindings are very nice for the $$$. I will try it out this weekend.

I got a HO Esprit slalom ski from Wiley's a couple of years ago for my wife. She loves it. It is a women's specific ski. Try this link for more info.

Best of both the above...

The Connelly SP is the exact same ski as the Concept, but with girly graphics... and $100 less !

Bought my wife a HO Burner 165 last summer and she loves it .

Thanks for the advice. I wanted to surpriser her with the ski for her birthday, but I think I am going to have her demo a couple before buying. I would hate to buy something she does not like.

I think we will probably go with the Connelly SP/Concept or a HO ski.

I was thinking about getting a HO CDX for her, any thoughts?
