Technical info:
Tigersnake is a light cap construction. Soft flex and medium stiff in the waist. The ski has a lot of taper and rocker in both ends, which gives short sidecut. The sidecut is shorter towards the ends and longer in the waist, which is typical from Line.

On snow:
Line surprises. A very light ski. On the chairlift it was described as feeling like «snowblades» on the feet. Tigersnake is still surprisingly stable. Very easy to rotate with and it is solid on hard snow. However, the tip does sink down a little in the softest slush, but this is no big issue. Some claim that the ski is almost too light, but this is perhaps something you get used to. This years test winner - just in front of APO
