Technical info:
It is by far the most powder oriented ski in this category. The waist width is large and the flex is very soft. High rocker and bend in the back ski. A short setback gives little width difference between the back and front ski, and it is not recommended to mount the bindings more than 5 cm behind the midpoint. High camber in the waist.

On snow:
Here comes a purebred powder ski! It´s not the best alternative on the trail, especially with respect to edge grip and stability at speed. They can also feel quite heavy. But if you are chasing deep powder in open woods, you should consider this ski. One of a very few powder-jibber models for women.
