The Pandora gorges on crud and pow, then begs for more. It takes ripping chicks seriously, boasting one of the widest women-specific waists out there—which accounts for its astonishing float. No rocker here, but an early-rise tip levitates the ski out of powder instead of plowing through it. A wood core gives it tank-like assurance when the hill’s tracked out. Gluttonous, yes, but picky, too: It won’t touch the groomed. “Stand up and point ’em: This ski breeds confidence,” said Beekman.
