Like her 94mm-waisted All-Mountain Narrow sister, the Uschi 87 was designed to answer the call of lady resort skiers who want a ski that will perform just as well off-piste as on, and in the most common snow condition: crud. Quick and responsive yet down-to-earth thanks to a flat tail, this is the ski you want to be on between winter storms. 

Strength: Quickness, Overall Impression 

Weakness: Flotation
