2015 Line Pandora ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s Powder Category.

“This ski schmears, skids, hucks and floats in soft snow, but this is not your on-piste ski,” says Muecke of the 110-mm-waisted Pandora. This Line women’s powder ski features maple underfoot and aspen in the thin tips to reduce swing weight, plus a combination of cap and sidewall construction over the edges. A Directional Flex includes a soft but wide early rise tip (142 mm) and stiffer, narrow tail (125 mm). Testers handed the Pandora its highest marks for float and lowest for carving. “It’s quick and easy to maneuver in tight trees,” says Sibley. “It’s a fun ski as long as you don’t expect race turns on the groomers.”
