A wood core and two sheets of metal give this ski the balance and strength that earned it a spot as one of the best in the test. Topping the category in Stability at Speed, Forgiveness and Flotation, the Aura proved to be the most versatile of the bunch, smoothly slicing through crud and tracked powder like a knife in cream cheese. Its shapely sidecut allows for carveability on the groomed, but there's no sacrifice in flotation. A couple testers preferred the Aura's stiffer unisex counterpart, the Mantra, but this standout ski is plenty beefy for most expert women. "A winner," said Sheinberg. "Sturdy and playful."

Best For

A Utah skier's one-ski quiver.

Not For

Making lively slalom turns.
