Line's premier all-mountain powder ski for hard-charging ladies.
Considered Line's premier ladies' ski for those who live to surf pow but want to maintain control on firm snow, the Women's Pandora Ski lets you tear up the mountain in all sorts of conditions and terrain. With this ski's 110mm waist and an Early Rise tip profile (rise starts earlier to allow for easier turn initiation and effortless snow floatation without needing to sit back), you'll find yourself making big sweeping turns down pow fields, maneuvering through chopped-up snow, and railing trenches down corduroy. In addition, the Pandora's widest point of sidecut starts tapering earlier in the tip to reduce tail drag and hooking in powder so you can smoothly munch pow, crud, and soft snow with ease.
Designed with CapWall construction, the Pandora features a cap on the top for light and responsive performance and sidewall construction over the edges for a smooth, solid feel while you slay the mighty mountain from top to bottom. Line engineers also gave the Pandora a Maplelite Macro Block wood core which has solid maple wood underfoot with lightweight aspen at the tips for durability and reduced swing weight. In addition, Thintip tech shaves the core in the tip and tail to reduce weight by 100g a pair, significantly cutting down on tip bounce and swing weight.Then Line packed in Directional Flex technology, which supplies a softer tip for float and easier turn initiation, while the stiffer tail gives power, stability, and high-speed control when you send it. Also packed in there is 5Cut technology which blends five different sizes of sidecut radius shapes into one for intuitive control and unlimited turn shapes. Its Fatty Edge (2mm wide x 2.5mm high) and Fatty Base (1.7mm thick) also increase the durability and tuning life of the Pandora. And finally, we think you'll enjoy the Pandora's smooth-looking graphics while your legs and skis dangle from the lift.

LOVE this ski!

These were my first powder ski and took some getting used to at first just because of the width... But now I've skied on them in all conditions during the past three years and have to say they are great in just about everything. I like to ski fast so I'm always looking for skis that won't chatter, and I have to say I haven't had any chatter problems with these (except for on the reaaaally icy stuff, but can't really help that anyway). This is a great ski all around.
Good First Powder Ski

I skied these skis for a day in heavy chop, on groomers and through a few untouched bowls. Overall I would recommend this ski to any level of skier who is unsure what they want in a ski and looking for a powder ski or an all around ski in areas with heavy snowfall. Skiers looking for more speed and stability or who ski in areas with lots of hard-pack and want one ski for everything will want to keep looking.
The Good: These skis have lots of float and are easy to flex and turn. The camber underfoot gives them some stability and the softer flex makes them forgiving and smooth. This would be a good ski for anyone who wants something with some float or is venturing off trail more than 40% of the time. It's a pretty good bet for any skier who isn't sure exactly what they want or who is buying their first powder ski and wants something sure to perform under a wide range of conditions at average speeds. It would work fine for most skier abilities. This ski also can work in the park decently well which is amazing for something so wide under foot, though I would only take it there for small jumps and giggles.
The bad: Skiers who prefer a stiffer ski, stability and steeper lines are probably going to want to look elsewhere. The Pandora is not as responsive or stable at speed.
The Ugly: Stay off the hard pack. Super chattery.

I have been eyeing these skis for so long, and I finally demoed them this weekend. And there's no looking back. This was my first go on a powder ski, and while I did get to try them on some deep pow/tight turns through the trees (which was amazing), I also took them down the groomers, and some old, chunky snow. They handled EVERYTHING. I seriously feel like I am cheating with these skis. They can do so much more than powder. I am 5'7" and the 172's were great!

I've always been a Volkl girl but I had a friend convince me to try these Line Pandoras and it was love at first turn! These are playful and floaty in the powder and rip through the icy crud. Handling all snow conditions flawlessly. I never thought I could love as ski as much as all the Volkls I've had over the years, but this Line has proven me wrong. I love these skis and definitely recommend these for any hard charging powder hungry ladies who also find themselves in the resort but still want a fun ski. This ski does it all!!
