She's ever-adapting and always pleasing.
The 4FRNT Women's Madonna Ski gobbles up the spotlight with its floaty rockered tip and tail, classic camber underfoot, and showstopping diva graphics. This all-mountain stick has a mid-fat waist that's plenty girthy enough for pow yet slim enough for easy maneuverability on hardpack and through tight trees and, yes, even the park and pipe. The Contour Core moves the center of the ski back for women-specific balance, and an asymmetric, directional shape and tapered tip and tail sidecut keep the ski balanced when railing down hill. The weight-conscious semi-cap construction improves durability without sacrificing that nimble, lively feel you get with a wood core. A true chameleon, the Madonna reinvents herself on every run.

4FRNT Skis Madonna Ski
I couldn't have been more pleased!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I took these out for a nice powder day, that also happened to be my first day back on skis in over a decade. These are legit! As my ski skills came back and I remembered how to turn, I got going from edge to edge, throwing myself around and really having a blast. They kept me afloat in the powder in the deep spots we found and were really fun and speedy. The Madonnas are really swaying me to get back to my 2-sticking roots!

For those not super sold on the idea of rocker, this is a great ski with traditional camber and the tiniest touch of rocker in the tip and tail to ensure flotation on deeper days.
This ski is REALLY damp, I was very pleased by its performance in crud and baby-heads. Took them out for a day at Alta where the weather just COULD NOT make up its mind.
...all in one day. The Madonna served me well. The only thing I didn't really love on the Madonna was moguls. I need to spend a little more time on these skis to determine if it's user error [quite possible...I am a TERRIBLE mogul skier] or if the skis simply don't perform well in moguls.
These skis LOVE to turn, I had no problem throwing them edge to edge in quick, rapid succession. They aren't quite as stable in huge, long GS style turns at speed, but doable. Quite fun in powder! They lack the surfy feel of the Armada VJJ or the Moment Bella, but it's still a fun ride.
I recommend this to intermediate/advanced lady skiers who are looking to experience rocker, but don't want to sacrifice performance on groomers or crud.
