The new all-mountain women’s ski from Stockli has an 85-mm waist, so it’s preferred habitat is groomed snow, but it’s wide enough to handle mixed-snow conditions too. Stockli, known for its cambered precision on hardpack, introduces Powder Rocker in this ski-the longest rockered tip in its collection. A new wood core is 10 percent lighter than the unisex version, with linen-reinforced balsa wood combined with fuma and ash, then reinforced with metal. The wood core lends responsiveness and integrity; the metal laminates durability and high-speed calm. Vertical sidewalls give edge grip and solidity. Women’s models, like the Motion, also boast a Softflex construction, which is more flexible for lighter frames and easier to control. Stockli Skis, now under its third generation of family ownership, is based in Wohusen, Switzerland, near Lucerne.
