WTB: solid skis for gf (attivas, pocket rockets, kehuas, et al)
After a two-year effort of attempting to convert my girlfriend to the dark side (snowboarding), she has decided to switch back to skiing. She is a strong skier who generally sticks with lift-served and will follow me down most any non-tree runs, but she's looking for a solid ski that will serve her well on any terrain and in her possible future forays into the backcountry. She's 5'9" and about 135.
I've done some searching on the subject and from what I've concluded (as mentioned, i'm a knuckle-dragger, so any helpful info would be nice) the Pocket Rockets would serve her well. Also in the running are the Volkl Attivas and the Fischer Kehuas.
Thanks for any help or lewd comments.

My fiance loves her attivas and demoed some auras this weekend and is now trying to pawn shit so she can get a pair of those for deep days."The fame was like a drug, but what was even more like a drug were the drugs."
