The Black Diamond Mystic Telemark Ski is a great all-around ski for women who don't want to compromise performance, but want a ski made with them in mind. The Mystic delivers in a big way with Dual Torsion Bow fore body and tails to make it snappy, with a low swing weight for technical skiing. The wood/Densolite core gives enough durability to take the intentional and unintentional abuse you put it through, but remains wonderfully light so you don't feel like you're trudging uphill on bricks. Dura-Edge carbide steel edges hold a tune famously, and the Electra sintered graphite base is eye-wateringly fast if that's your thing. The Mystic's binding plate handles tele or AT bindings equally well. No matter what she's presented with, the Mystic will float and turn with a grace worthy of you.
Bottom Line: Grace, beauty and smooth linked turns.
