Line Pandora Skis - Women's - 2012/2013 - $389.83

When the powder is deep, the Line Pandora skis open up a whole new world of backcountry fun. These skis were made for the deepest of the deep, the fluffiest of the fluff, and the softest of the soft, but they also transition well onto groomed runs. Aspen wood core consists of a blend of high-quality wood laminates that reduce weight and enhance overall strength. Symmetrical flex pattern in the tip and tail allows responsive riding forward or backward. Tip and tail rocker floats high in backcountry powder whether skiing forward or switch; relatively low rise planes through powder instead of plowing up and over. Geometry of skis incorporates 5 different turn radii to create effortless turn initiation with solid edge hold and responsive exits. Early Taper(TM) places the widest points of the tip and tail closer to the center of the ski, reducing tail drag and hooking in powder. You'll notice the grippy feel of these skis on hardpack thanks to the extended length of the edges. Thin core and sidewall in the tips reduces weight and makes skis easier to control. P-tex plastic sidewalls isolate vibrations, offering high-end damping characteristics. Increasing the thickness of a standard base and edge adds significant durability and impact resistance, and it lets you tune your skis many times throughout the season. High-quality sintered base retains wax and glides easily over snow. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo. Requires bindings with wide brakes. - $389.83
