Adjust your goggles, tap your poles together, kick the snow off of the Salomon Women's Geisha 100 Ski's topsheet, and get ready for a super-fun ride down a chute filled with soft snow. A multi-tasker at heart, the Geisha handles anything you throw its way. It's All-Terrain Rockered profile, early-rise tail, and versatile waist enable you to show off your mad skills in crud, corduroy, soft snow, and icy conditions, while the Geisha's Edgy Monocoque construction gives you efficient energy transfer from ski to snow.
- All-Terrain Rockered profile features an 80% pressure zone when the ski is flat and a 95% pressure zone when it's on edge, offering more precise turn initiation, reduced chances of catching an edge, better stability at high speeds, and fluid terrain absorption
- All-Terrain Rockered profile also has a rockered tip that provides optimal floatation in pow
- Early Rise Tail gives you easy and progressive turning ability and offers exceptional performance on groomers
- Full wood core from tip to tail supplies solid stability on snow, powerful rebound, maximizes ski/snow contact, and filters vibrations for a smooth ride
- A layer of bamboo and basalt beneath the fiberglass and above the core supplies lively edge-to-edge contact
- Edgy Monocoque construction eliminates excess material and gives you precise edge grip and efficient energy transfer from skier to snow
- 95, 97, and 99mm waists give you a versatile, all-mountain ski that handles well on and off groomers
- Edge Armor incorporates a strong polyethylene fiber cord that links the ski's edges to create 25% less edge depression and 10% less edge wrenching
- Wide, thicker edges increase durability and improve shock resistance

I'm 5'3" and 112#. I ski everywhere on the mountain, mostly in Pacific Northwest conditions. Is the 153 too short for me? I think the 164 is a bit too long. Want to add some fat skis to the mix! Thanks!

I had been demo-ing skis all winter long... I was skiing on K2 sidekicks, but had a knee injury last season and thus, my trusty sidekicks were a bit too much ski for me this season. I tried just about everything, and was almost set to buy a pair of K2 Superstitious, which are in fact, great skis. I was going to purchase a pair of used demos, but when I went to buy them, they were out on a three day demo. I was ready to pull the plug and had someone buying my sidekicks so needed to make a move. The crew in the shop sent me out on the Geishas and one of the guys warned me I might fall in love with the skis... Well, that is exactly what happened. The stiff sidewall makes this softer ski still capable of getting an edge in the firm. No problem plowing through the slush, carving the 'roy, and floating around in the pow. Its been a year of rebuilding for me since my little mishap last year, and truthfully, getting on these skis made me remember how much I love to ski. I felt like a kid again, daring to hit the sidewalls and skirt around the trees. The ski turns like a dream, making long arcs or short rounds, depending on the mood. Not the carver King that the K2 Superstitious is, but certainly a wonderful all-mountain tool.

I am 5'9 and aprox. 150 lbs what length ski should I be looking for with the Geisha?
I am 5'11 and used the 164 cm. I like a shorter ski for my height because I am new and I like to go slower and not feel like I'm out of control. For your height, the 164 would be best, unless you like to ski on something really long for you.
After demo'ing them this winter, I just purchased these. They initiate turns incredibly well, which is what I needed. They're flexible and easy to control. They ski well in all conditions.
The length you need will largely depend on your size and your ability level. If you are a newer/intermediate skier, I suggest picking up the 164cm ski. This length will be easier to steer and initiate turns if you are a newer skier. If you are confident on steeper terrain and like to go fast, you would definitely be happier with the 173 cm which will provide you with better stability at high speed.
