The Pandora is, above all, comfortable. Early-rise tips make it easy to manage in bumps and crud, and a softer flex makes it playful and forgiving. Testers praised it for its balanced feel but noted that a soft tip cries uncle when you really try to pin it down, so it's best for more laid-back women who are more interested in having fun than stomping huge lines.

It's a ski that challenges you to find the best lines and snow conditions.
