You can see the sheet of Titanal on the topsheet, keeping the ski damp and stable in the center where you need it, and keeping the tips maneuverable and light where you don’t. A new model—Blizzard is investing heavily in women’s designs—the Sheeva 10 is forgiving, fun, and versatile. Some testers whined that it wasn’t a true “powder” ski—several manufacturers entered narrower skis in this category —and wanted to try the wider 112-waisted Sheeva 11, but they got over it pretty quickly after they dove through the DV trees. “A wonderful marriage of playfulness and performance,” Brent said.
