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. With one of the widest waists in the bunch, the Pandora earned high scores in Flotation and, not surprisingly, the lowest in Hard-Snow Grip. NOTES: The Pandora is Line’s widest and most powder-specific women’s ski. It has a healthy dose of tip rocker—for soft-snow performance—and camber underfoot—for firmer conditions. It’s a twin-tip ski with symmetric flex. It will excel at freestyle-inspired powder skiing. The Pandora is intended for more advanced riders.
