Lovely looking pair of skis with lots of agility and versatility for intermediate and advanced level groom run skiers. The ‘9’s look fantastic and ski very well. Their 73 mm waist inspires confidence and is easy to balance upon, even in fresh or chopped up snow. On groomed runs the 9 is smooth and fluid and benefits from tailored flex to help women skiers engage their turns more easily whilst enjoying a smoother ride. Short turns, carved or skidded, are a breeze, medium turns the ‘9’s forte and longer, faster turns are tolerated rather than lapped up. Not too dissimilar than the Cloud 8, durable, fun and attractive – am sure most women are thinking, “that sounds better than most men!”
