Help Finding a Ski

Hey everyone,

One of my friends is looking to buy her first slalom ski.  She's really only ever skied on combos before, so she's relatively new to the sport, but she's about to get a new ski that will (hopefully) last her for awhile.  She is 5'8" and 135lbs.  What would you recommend?

Thanks,
Andy

Andy,

Rob here, my girl friend was in the same position and wanted a ski that she could use awhile. Shes about the same weight, but 5'5''. I bought her the radar lyric 65". Its slightly wider so you can use a shorter ski. She loves it! Go to radarskis.com under closeouts and they have the 08 lyric for 99$ its a steal. We payed 150 last fall.

Re: Help Finding a Ski

The 65 Lyric will be a great choice.
