I'm surprised SnowHot didn't mention the Blizzard Black Pearl sooner.  If you don't mind going a bit narrower than the Aura I would bet that the Black Pearl is the better ski.  I didn't ski any of the 2012 women's models, but I did ski the revamped Mantra and I feel that the Blizzard Bonafide is a much better ski than the Mantra.  I also liked the Bushwacker more than the Kendo so I would assume that the Black Pearl is the better selection.  Blizzard has some really good stuff coming next season.  At this point I think it's definitely worth the wait.

This is true........and 88 under foot is not necessarily a bad thing if you're looking for an all mountain ski with a powder bias!
Sometimes you just need to let your Bad Self ski!!
