Technical info:
Pandora is a classical powder ski for women, and now it has a slimmer little sister. Line sent us a short test ski, and the large sidecut was certainly no surprise. A lot of flex throughout and some bend in the tail, in addition to rocker and taper in both ends. The lightest ski in the test, but that says more about the short length.

On snow:
The test length was a heated subject among the test riders. Several thought it was too short. Some believed it could have been the test winner if a longer model had been available to us. What you get is an allrounder that is playful and easy to maneuver on hard and soft surfaces alike. The ski performs best at low and moderate speed, which is probably due to the length and softness. It is a good choice, but do consider a longer pair.
