I'm 16, 5'7", 115 lbs, and I absolutely love these skis! I ski the 162cm from 2009 and you simply can't go wrong. They love the powder but I can still out-carve my brother going down the groomers. I generally ski in Colorado but I make trips to Utah and they perform just as well in the bottomless powder of Alta as the perfect moguls of Mary Jane. I've beaten these skis up, ran over my brother in them, and skied over countless rocks but yet the Kikus still manage to hang in there. I'd recommend these skis to any girl who can ski it hard and wants to improve her skiing. They're quick and responsive, not so stiff but yet a ton of fun. They're perfect for a one-ski quiver!
These skis are pretty indestructible too, I have a gash in the side wall, a mostly p-tex base, and not a lot left of my top sheet and they still ski exactly they way they did my first day on them.
Just a warning, these skis are in no way a ski for a beginner. You have to be able to ski hard or these skis will dominant you.
