Metal in a pow ski? Testers eloquently (and sans abbreviation) said F-yeah. The new Santa Ana 110 takes the place of the La Nina as the official Pow Slayer, taking its rightful place at the top of the sexiest boards alive. It’s a stable, hard-charging—yet never punishing—pow crusher whose spirit animal would be Rhianna. It’s more traditional in feel, yet plenty progressive with its blunt-nose attitude that poaches lines with pride. Interesting that the top ski also scored lowest in the category for Quickness—pow days are just too precious to waste on short turns. “This ski came to play in a serious fashion,” Gleason said.

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Crud
