The most powerful women’s Frontside skis aren’t the barely bendable beasts that populate the men’s Power selections, but they get the job done for the fairer – and lighter – sex. They possess the primordial property of maintaining snow contact when the skier pushes the accelerator to the floor. They don’t require expert technique but they certainly prefer it, as they’d rather ride a titled edge than be smudged and skidded downhill. Where our Finesse Favorites tend to coddle the average skier, our Power Picks will push them to excel.
