For power, stability, pace, and pop all over the mountain, look no further than the Nordica Santa Ana 93. This is a zippy, responsive downhill ripper for the woman in your life who wants to lace quick technical turns every day.
Though it has the soul of a pure alpine in-bounds charger, Nordica uses its Energy 2 Ti core to give the Santa Ana 93 a healthy dose of versatility. The full wood core sandwiched with one layer of titanium and another of GR400 carbon glass allow the Santa Ana 93 to blast through the crud and dive hard into high-speed turns, but also play nice when the powder invites us into a mellower form of all-mountain exploration.
The Santa Ana line’s tip, tail, and core have been reengineered for 2022. Nordica reduced the amount of heavy ABS plastic at either end of the ski, replacing that damping and stability with the full-length carbon strips hiding inside the Santa Ana 93.
This is a reliable everyday driver for those who love to chase top speed but don’t want to keep a second powder-day ski on the rack.
