The Santa Ana 98 by Nordica is a strong and versatile all-mountain ski for advanced skiers.
98mm Waist – At 98mm underfoot, the Nordica Santa Ana 98 performs really well in the majority of conditions.
Energy Titanal Balsa Core – An energetic balsa wood core is supplemented with Titanal for a high degree of power transmission and stability on edge.
Carbon Reinforcement – By using carbon reinforcement, the Santa Ana 98 gets a dampening boost and improved stability while still cutting weight.
True Tip – Less acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic and lighter balsa wood in the tip of the ski makes for lighter, more responsive tips without sacrificing stability.

Speed, stability, and crushing through tough snow. The Santa Ana is what you want if you really like to ski fast or value a smooth ride. It has titanal metal in the core which is great at smoothing out vibrations and smashing through rough snow. It is a more advanced ski, but seriously rips if you put the power into it! Great in powder too thanks to the 98mm waist width.
Nordica's product lines are a solid choice for skiers who like a lot of stability under their feet and like to cruise the whole mountain in one day, in any conditions. Charging through crud and coasting through powder is made fun with this stiff ski with a bit of metal in it and a wood core. Even with the metal, these tips are light on chatter and heavy on fun!
Making your intent known. The Santa Ana 98 is not the stiffest or most powerful ski out there, but it's close. Nordica did a great job beefing this ski up with enough power to blast crud and rail turns, but the rocker profile smooths out the rough edges to keep it from becoming too demanding. It rewards a strong pilot, while not punishing small mistakes.
Nordica is known for producing high quality - stable chargers and they don't cut corners on their ladies line. With a metal layer construction, this ski offers superior edge control and a smooth and confident ride. Even with the added weight, these sticks can move and after that turn is initiated will grab hold and won't let go until you say so.
A stiffer option that uses metal to really be able to push this ski in varying conditions. Super stable underfoot but also very lively and moveable in the trees and bumps.
