If you buy this ski, your days as an Aspiring Expert might be numbered. Made from a new women-specific mold, the Cloud 7 has three flex zones. Soft tips and tails execute controlled arcs with the slightest ankle roll, and a stiffer center holds up at speed. The result is a ski that’s both forgiving and strong - and will grow with you as you improve. “Will transform the misguided beginnings of a turn into a solid, stable, complete arc,” said Sheinberg.
