We love Nordica for adding metal—two sheets, thank you very much—to this year’s Santa Ana 100. The women’s version of the unequivocal king ski, the Enforcer, the Santa Ana is now every bit of the crud-busting powerhouse. It somehow manages to be both damp and stable and quick and poppy. Testers did ding it for having a tight tune, which hooked up in the soft spring Utah snow, accounting for it being ranked the lowest among winners in Forgiveness. (Chill: It’ll be more relaxed with the factory tune.) “Agile and quick in the crud, solid on edge,” said Brent.

Strengths: Flotation, Crud
