They say

Powerful, playful and precise, the Santa Ana 88 provides a whole new way to experience the mountains. Women who spend their days skiing on trails with friends love its stability and control

We say

This top of the range ski from Nordica is a strong, powerful ski to use. It’s quick and nimble onto the edge, but once cranked over it carves out a mean arc. As well as very high levels of grip it gives out a super smooth ride which gives the skier confidence to push on and go for higher speeds and bigger angles. In the off piste that extra 88mm underfoot really makes itself felt and gives the Santa Ana a wide enough platform to give instant float. The waist width and strong construction combination makes it a formidable crud buster and overall make for a ski which would work extremely well with confident skiers
