Product details
Official manufacturer description

Since making its debut, the Santa Ana 88 has earned a reputation for being smooth and stable. And now—thanks to an entirely new construction and shape designed for on-trail terrain—our best-selling women’s ski is more versatile than ever. Equipped with a narrower waist, it pairs a wood core with carbon and a sheet of terrain-specific metal. This boosts your confidence by enhancing edge hold and dampening vibrations for a smooth and balanced ride. It also produces a ski that’s especially easy to control and maneuver. With an emphasis on fun, the Santa Ana 88 provides an entirely new way to experience the trail.

The Nordica Santa Ana line is a phenomenal match for the advanced to expert female skier who pushs the speed limit with every turn. When driven hard, these skis match the power of their skier to respond in the blink of an eye. These skis are FAST and reward the bold with extreme stability and edge hold. These skis are 88mm underfoot, allowing them to excel on fresh groomers and even on ice. At this waist width, they are weaker performing in off-piste conditions. I own the 98s as my personal ski for all-mountain terrain, but I would consider these 88s for myself for those early-season days or when I stay on groomers with my intermediate friends. The biggest downside to these skis is they will easily overpower an intermediate. Overall, the Santa Ana 88 is a fantastic option for the advanced to expert woman who lives on the East Coast/Midwest or stays on the frontside in the Rockies.

Pros
  • Strong power delivery
  • Incredibly fast
  • No chatter
Cons
  • Will overpower an intermediate skier
  • Frontside focused, not the best for off-piste
