Name: Heather Hansman, online editorAge: 26 Height: 5'9" Weight: 135Dream Skis: Couple of big steps for me this year: I’m going to buy a fatty pow ski, and I’m letting go of my long-held bias against  women-specific skis (what? I’m tall). The ski that’s breaking down all those walls? Volkl’s Kiku. It’s 106 underfoot with an early rise tip,   plus, it’ll be nice to have pretty skis for a change.Preferred Terrain: Trick question? Powder, either trees, or open steeps. A-Basin’s East Wall has my heart. Your go-to ski for the last few seasons, and why you ski it day after  day, year after year: Could be my East Coast roots, but I like a stiff ski with some side cut, so the Volkl Mantra is my go-to.  It rails on groomers and floats in just about everything. Maybe not a blower Alaska ski, but it’s a solid, fast, stable  everyday ski.  One ski goal for the season: Crested Butte Extremes, the tele edition. Also, wear my helmet every day.
