Day 2 was like heaven on these skis. I got all of my confidence back and just tore up the mountain. And could not get enough. So the two of us had a blast. Since I did so much better, Rebecca thought that since I had such a revelation, there may be better for her. So on Day 3 she went for a new pair of Nordica and hated it. Her quote was that she could not find out what the skis were good for. They didn't perform in the bumps, flats, steeps or ice. It's probably not the skis as much it was just not a match to her. She's going back to the original skis for day 4.
The moral of the story, spend the extra rental fee and go for the higher end demos before buying. Most major resorts like Steamboat Springs and many ski shops have them. Try before you buy. You won't regret.
If you are ever at Steamboat Springs. Check out the Pro Shop in the Gondola square. Ask questions while you are there and they will best find what may be those skis for you.
