Nordica’s Santa Ana freeride line now includes a model specifically designed for early season laps. The Santa Ana 88 features a new lighter weight, vibration-damping tip and full-length carbon stringers to increase quickness and maneuverability. While this ski performs best on edge, it will let you smear and pivot turns in the bumps if you ask nicely. Only the most willful skiers will get the Santa Ana 88 to perform in the chop.
