Women won’t find the unalloyed carving machines that dominate the Power listings on the other side of the gender divide. The women’s Power Picks don’t depend on massive doses of speed to become responsive, nor do they have to ride at a high edge angle to demonstrate their prowess. They’re instantly accessible to skiers of modest skills yet have a performance envelope that extends well into the advanced sphere. Built to latch onto the top of the turn but release it gently, they’re a joy for ladies who are already capable carvers and patient companions for those on the brink of advanced ability.
