Think of it as a powder cruiser. The lightweight, easy-flexing B94W is a forgiving ride that likes to keep things casual. But that’s not to say it doesn’t have backbone when the soup gets thick. Quicker underfoot than some of the other fatties, this ski prefers to turn, slipping easily into a rhythm down the fall line. But, on the flip side, it may be too soft for heavier or more aggressive women. “I didn’t have to think for it to turn,” said Bates. “It’s easygoing and solid.”

Best For

Beginner to advanced surfers, or those who want to make the most out of small-hill powder days.

Not For

Hardcore chargers.
