a little higher than an entry level ski and very much the versatile all-mountain ski that the sporty intermediate will love.
Now with added wood to the core the Emerald’s are super-easy to turn and are a joy on blue to red run skiing. Perfect up to lighter or less aggressive advanced skiers the shaping of the Emerald with its slightly narrower tail gives you a nice finish with no grab or drive at the end of your turns – this is reassuring and really enables the intermediate skier to relax, change edges and wash off speed through skidding in their own time.
An excellent package for the intermediate female skier.
