I am currently on Black Pearls and am looking for a new all mountain ski. East Coast primarily Killington Mountain about 50 days/ year. I am 60+, 5' 2" 100 lb, and solid intermediate on trails, no glades. Just like to troll around.

Recommendation for a new ski greatly appreciated.

Welcome! I'm about your size and in the same age bracket. When I was an adventurous intermediate sticking to groomers getting back to skiing a decade ago, I liked K2 and Rossignol skis in general, still do as an advanced older skier. Ended up buying the original Black Pearl @159 in 2012. Have liked the current BP88 @145 and @152 when demo'ing out west. It's quite a different design than the first version. Much improved for northeast conditions. I also demo'd the BP78 but for some reason don't like it as much.

The Nordica Santa Ana 88 is well worth checking out.

For more ideas, check out the comments from Divas who went to the Sunapee Ladies Day last March. It was great fun!

My daughter and I love our Blizzard's. I got Quattros a couple of years ago and just adore them. They redesigned and created a new line called Alight. She has the pro version and loves hers, although she's still working on riding them correctly. She loves a challenge. I wouldn't recommend the pro version, but the intermediate version with the titaniums are definitely worth a try!

I had a lot of fun searching for my skis. I hope you get a chance to demo. I really enoyed it. Good luck!
