She wants some kind of hybrid between a Jib ski and a fat ski...I was looking at K2 misdemeanors, but Line (k2) also makes a great Jib ski for women.

If she was pure jib, I would buy her a shorter ski (160 +-) but she also likes to ride steeps and pow. I can only afford One pair of ski. Do I go for a longer softer JIB ski (167), or do I get her a pair of fatter, shorter skis? Do I go for some other combination I haven't thought of because I simply don't ski?

Tramdock, Whiskeymilitia and Steepancheap have all been rocking K2 packages for >$300 (Phat Luv, etc.) marked down from $700-$900.

I ski Volkl Aura's. I am a fairly decent skier, but I am not a big jibber. It looks like Volkl is making the Aura again, but they don't have a true twin tip. I am pretty sure the Volkl Cosmo does, and being 92 underfoot is nothing to sneeze at. I hate short, soft skis, so I went with the Auras in 177, but I am also very tall for a girl. Hope that helped.
