The Aurena from Volkl make a perfect ski for the lady that is a solid intermediate that can conquer all green runs, most blues, and the easy black diamonds. A wood core improves the stability to be able to handle the varying speeds of intermediates on groomed terrain without being too demanding or aggressive that would cause you to fatigue too quickly. Volkl's XTD Progressive Technology has a 3D design that adds to the stability of the ski in the shovel and mid-body. The tail of the ski is also softer that requires less effort to exit the turn. The Aurena has rocker in the tip to initiate turns easier and faster for you, while the camber underfoot will give you stability on firmer snow, and rebound to transition into your next turn cleanly. The waist of the Aurena is 75mm wide and is very easy to maneuver on the groomers. If you can confidently ski most blue runs, and want a ski that will be stable, and easy to control the Volkl Aurena will be a great option.
