Thanks all for the continued input.  The Prophets/Soulmates are a bit on the heavy side.  This ski needs to be a quiver of one front&backcountry ski, so I'm trying to keep the weight under 8 pounds for her and closer to 7 ideally. The description of Vicky skiing is helpful too, as Amy is a little more aggressive, having skied any line I've taken her to(though sometimes she does so too carefully) so that the Aura may be an appropriate tree ski for her, but I still have to find out the weight.

20 pounds heavier and 15-20 years younger, too, I imagine. Also, vickie is pretty blue square type II skier in her trail selection.  She has never skied, for example, Paradise, and has no plans to do so. Moonwalk glades at Jay or Ben's Glade at MRG are more her type.

Thanks again Wes.  

This is so different from reviews I've read, in which it's touted as an excellent all around ski.

With Amy being at least 20 pounds heavier, and the newer models having some rocker, I wonder if they'd be ok in the trees.

Decisions, decisions.

Vicki says "Awesome in powder, prefers longer turns, not a tree ski (at least for me) , likes some steepness. Best runs ever on them Blackcomb glacier and stage coach (winter park) ."

My darling wife has a pair, 156cm, pre-rocker. Same dimensions as old Mantra, old time rectangular sidewalks and german built. A tad long and heavy for her (4' 10" and 100 lbs), but if she can turn them, anyone can. She saves them for powder days and western trips. In contrast, her new everyday ski is a 141cm volkl essenza Chiara, light and skinny. 

Anyway, she likes them, and I bet Amy would, too. If I can find my kitchen scale, I'll try to weigh them.

Does anyone on the list know any women that are on this ski?  Can they give feedbackut on what the ski is like?  Amy is looking at a pair of these.

Also, I can't seem to find the weight of these skis?  Any chance one of you number geeks have this on one of your spreadsheets?

TIA
