This aptly named playgirl is super floaty, forgiving, and fun in the conditions is was made to ski in: powder. Ask it to carve cleanly on hardpack, however, and it’ll happily turn its big, rockered nose back into the trees. (It scored last in the category for Hard-Snow Integrity.) Thanks to said tips, they do ski short and can be overpowered by stronger women, but the sheer ease and fun factor was noted by all. Testers felt this would make a perfect intermediate tool for those just venturing into the deep stuff, or a great all-rounder for women who don’t want a ski that makes them work too hard. “Turn after turn of good times,” Bremner said.

Strengths: Forgiveness, Playfulness
