149-151 is a good range for all-mountain
151-154 if she's leaning toward freeride

Just guidelines, depends on flex of board,...

Shredler, great review, thanks! I rode a NS Lotus at the end of this past (very short, lacking in snow Tahoe) season--just wondering what differences you noticed between the Lotus and the Raven.

Look up the schedule for TART-Tahoe Area Regional Transit. Goes from Incline past Northstar, I think.

Kirkwood probably has the best snow right now but since you don't have a car, getting there will be difficult. Same goes for Sierra ( not sure of conditions there).

Pretty slim pickings in Tahoe right now. Since you'll be at Squaw for the camp, you might as well ride there, or hop on the free shuttle to Alpine. Another option is Mt. Rose, but since you don't...

Rideordiechick, I'm about your height and weight. If you can't demo, I'd say go for the 149, it will be a more versatile all mountain board as you progress. Since you're a fairly new rider, you...

Neni, check the waist widths on the Lotus (or Raven) for the best match for your boot size, but generally speaking, 149 is too short for you. 151 if you want to play around on the mountain, 154 if...

The Lotus is the NS women's counterpart to the men's Premier board. (At least it seems to me) that the Infinity is a softer, more playful all-mountain board that can also be used in the park. If...

Aww, sweet photos! :thumbsup:

I was hoping to see you use a snowboard leash instead of a ring tether, but a brilliant idea, nonetheless.

Congrats to you and your fiancee!
