If your mission is to slice up the frontside, you’ll want a ski that’s well versed in the art of the carve underfoot. Surprisingly light considering its multi-layer wood core reinforced with Titanal, the Kenja 88 moves with agility and speed over the mountain, leaving precise slashes in the snow in her wake. Strong ladies will love this ski both on and off-piste, while intermediates may find the ski easier to command on groomed terrain.

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Quickness

WEAKNESS: Forgiveness
