The Nordica Women's Santa Ana Ski has achieved the seemingly impossible by offering a lightweight feel that's a blast off-piste, holds a solid edge on hardpack, and will remain surprisingly damp when you're busting through crud and chunder once the resort is tracked out. Finding a ski that's both light and maneuverable off-piste, but incredibly damp on the hardpack is a tough bill to fit. Add a women's specific flex and core to the equation, and you might be on something of a unicorn hunt. But don't put that saddle away just yet, because this ski can do it all. The versatile 100-millimeter will float you through morning pow and devour whatever conditions remain after 10AM, and an early rise profile puts more camber underfoot for a solid feel in variable conditions, but still has enough rocker in the tip and tail to pivot and smear turns when the snow is deep. The light wood core keeps these sticks playful and poppy, and Titanal layers dampen vibrations for a smooth, solid ride at high speeds. Add carbon prepreg laminates for superior edge grip and confidence-inspiring stability, and you have a unicorn that's ready to charge down every inch of the mountain.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
