Technical info:
La Niña has the largest surface area in the test. The acutely angled tips are soft, as is the back ski. The camber at the waist turns into rocker at both ends. The test skis were long. Its weight is relatively low in proportion to the base area.

On snow:
A really cool ski with great flotation and speed qualities. It is stable at speed, easy to turn with and has good grip. Some of our test skiers just didn’t want to take them off. El Niña is a feisty all-round model for the experienced skier that seeks big mountains and dense woods. But it works equally well for the beginner who wants a ski that is easy to deal with.
