Re: Wider skis for my wife?

And I agree with what you said, I don't think she should go above 100.

Gary, what does Alice use for her powder ski?
Lynn's are 84mm Fischer Muanga's.

That's what I'm looking for! Something tangible to sink my teeth into. 

I think Alice's skis are 99mm, but what I don't know is whether they are working for her.  I'm sure that at 120 lbs, they are plenty wide to get her up on the snow.  But what about hard snow performance? Knee strain? Maneuverability and quickness? Lightness? Edge changes?

And Lynn's Muanga's? My daughter skis those, so I'm quite familiar with them (great skis).  But how does Lynn find they work in powder? What kind of conditions has she skied them in? I seem to recall she is only about 10 to 12 lbs lighter than my wife, but then the skis are about the same width but 6 cm shorter, similar sidecut.  So it would be great to get her feedback too.  First hand experience, and all that.....
