Take it to outer space.
Armada's ARW Women's Ski is the mintiest of park and pipe skis, with a light swing weight and plenty of pop to help lady jibbers boost to the moon, throw down a few hits on crater walls, and butter back down to Earth with smooth, easy style. Armada built it with a Hybrid Double Zone core, which uses a full wood construction to keep things light, but a full fiberglass laminate and carbon Kevlar stringers in the tail to provide the stiffness you need to mob into icy takeoffs and carve up the frontside. The tail stringers also give the ARW a directional flex—softer in the tip, stiffer in the tail—for more turn-finishing power and edge control without sacrificing smooth, easy butterability.
Everything's capped off—get it?—with Armada's AR50 hybrid cap and sidewall construction. A lightweight cap over the tips and tails reduces swing weight, but sidewalls underfoot provide stiffness and direct power to the edges, so you can spin like an anti-gravity space top without giving up the ARW's unearthly levels of edge hold, which are provided by the full-length traditional camber and 2.5mm Impact Edges. The ARW's easy to maintain, too, with a bombproof S7 base that slides around quicker than a moon worm confronted with a space blaster, so you can slide rails and hit rough jibs all day without worrying about your bases becoming as worthless as space junk.
