Volkl Women's Pearl Ski:
With the same dimensions as the Volkl men's Ledge ski, this women's Pearl ski is the ideal female-specific twin-tip for jibbing in the terrain park--especially if you're an intermediate-to-advanced rider who is fairly new to the park and pipe scene. With fewer ounces than the Ledge, the Pearl is a lightweight twin-tip that's excellent for intermediate women skiers who want to stick to the groomed places in the park. Despite having the same dimensions as the Ledge, the Pearl is female-specific to the core--an agile balance of Sensorwood made from vertically laminated poplar and beech wood and integrated with strips of balsa. This gives the Pearl a dramatically lighter weight than the Ledge (at least 20% depending on which length you choose). The Pearl also has a lower and shorter tip profile than the Ledge, which slightly reduces the overall swing weight and makes the Pearl easier to turn (both on and above the snow). As with other manufacturer's female-specific skis, Volkl moved the bindings on the Pearl closer to the ski tip than other unisex designs, so the effortless turn initiation feels almost instinctive. If you're looking for a lark in the park that's better balanced than any boy's toy, the twin-tip Pearl is an easy choice.
