There's little that beats laying a fresh cut through untouched corduroy, and this year's top women's carvers will do just that.

When you spend most of your day laying trenches on fresh corduroy, these skis won't disappoint.

Featuring the Mantra’s proven laminate build and vertical sidewalls, the Kenja is built for technically strong women who ski on- and off-trail in equal measure—East or West. “For girls who like fine wines,” said one tester. “This ski has taste and class.” It’s a carving heroine that arcs stable medium-radius turns on groomed snow, yet its width can handle various snow types. Lighter testers found it a bit unwieldy off-trail but loved its groomer performance. Powerful women loved it everywhere.

“An all-mountain generalist,” declared one Tahoe-based racer turned free-skier. “I couldn’t find snow it didn’t like.” The fast, stable Eden seemed to prefer strong skiers with technical backgrounds; ex-racers loved its big-turn power while laid-back freeskiers found it a mite obstreperous and unwilling to skid. The wide shovel hooks easily into turns, and the ski is equally comfortable in long and short arcs. A tiny dose of tip rocker is just enough to deflect crud well and enhance agility in tight spots.

This easy turner is the perfect companion for relaxed, sunny-day cruising. Its deep sidecut facilitates quick, spunky turns, but the ski isn’t difficult to control. It initiates smoothly and holds a secure edge on groomed snow. Testers found it responsive whether they skied aggressively or throttled down. It’s a well-balanced ski, and it works best if you’re centered and balanced too. The Great One weaves deftly through trees and bumps, and its stiff shovel punches through crud.

Like all Völkl test models, the Tierra has a feeling of structural cohesiveness: All components work harmoniously. Purpose-built for female physiology, it features a raised toepiece to create a neutral stance, which is said to even the energy draw throughout the leg and reduce knee strain. Its tip is stiffer than its tail, and the tail is narrower than those of Völkl’s comparable unisex models. The result is quick, reliable turn initiation followed by a smooth, easy exit. It’s a zippy carver whose in-turn behavior is characterized by unfailing stability and grip.

Whether you love tight, short-radius turns or GS sweepers, this high-energy ski will satisfy your craving for edge-to-edge action. “Definitely fun to carve ‘easy-style,’” said one tester. Other testers noted that Blizzard’s lively Viva is forgiving and lightweight, springs friskily into action on the corduroy, and digs in tenaciously on the steeps. Ex-racers and freeskiers alike agreed that this ski has plenty to offer experts, but remains an easygoing, friendly ride for upwardly mobile intermediates. **Editors Note: The price for these skis was printed incorrectly in the print edition of Skiing's 2011 Gear Guide. The correct price for these skis, with bindings, is $849.99.**
