I got my sis a Rossignol Tesla last season and she loves it. It is mostly rocker, so easy for a beginner but what I was really amazed by was how light this thing is. I feel like with newbies (especially ladies) lugging a heavy board around the hill is a pain. Throw some nice light bindings on there and she will enjoy for sure. We put Burton Scribe bindings on it. My sis actually progressed incredibly fast on it... faster than I did when I started. I had her on intermediate runs on her third day, and when it snowed a bit the rocker made it easier to float and turn.

One of my favorite boards right now is a K2 Eco Lite. I wish i wouldve learned on one. It's a flat board with a bit of rocker in the ends. Its just about impossible to catch an edge and super lightweight. Dont know about where it lands on cuteness....

Is that a $400-$500 budget for just the deck or the whole package?

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Last year we got my girlfriend a Burton Feather with some Flow bindings and it has been a perfect set up for her to learn on. I would recommend that board to any girl.
