These are amazing in powder. They're light and nimble, work great in trees or steep moguls, and they're stiff enough to hold their own against wet Pacific Northwest crud.
They require a bit more patience when edging on groomers, but they do quite well.
Stable at speed, and they make skiing switch easy.
For sizing, I'm 5'1", 110 lb, and got the 152, since I mostly ski trees.
Women's POW Ski at it's finest!
I switched over from Moment Pikas and love the Line Pandora ski for inbounds and backcountry in Utah. I got the 172cm as I needed the extra length even though the early rise beckons an amazing pow ride. They are fairly light in weight and adding the Marker Baron's didn't do all that much to the weight overall.
When are you going to have the 2012...
When are you going to have the 2012 Pandora?!
We'll probably start getting inventory July sometime.
Recommend, Great POW Skis, Groomers Too!
Excellent ski. I got these for my wife and she skied these at Canyons and Snowbird/Alta. At Canyons on a powder day, my wife was skiing 12" deep powder like she never has before. She is able to make smooth S turns in deep powder unlike ever before. These ski's will make you a better skier and force you to make smooth turns. Additionally, while these are powder skis, they handle the groomers excellent as well. We did not try these on icey conditions however since we have a different pair of skis for such conditions... At Alta, the snow was packed powder and they handled excellently as well.
Do the Line Pandora skis really rip on...
Do the Line Pandora skis really rip on groomers? I'm looking for a more advanced pow specific ski than I have now to keep up with the guys. At the same time, I live in a place where powder days are somewhat rare...I don't want to buy a pair of skis that are shaky and can't handle groomers, crud, and less than perfect ski conditions. Any answers?
No, these are not good skis for groomers. These are amazingly awesome Powder skis through and through. I just got a pair earlier this season and love them. However, they do chatter & bounce you around a bit when you're not in the powder. But isn't the powder what you're buying these for?! If you're looking for a true all around ski, check out the Line Celebrity which I also own and love. -VT Skier
I disagree with the previous opinion....I was totally amazed with how easy these were on the groomed runs too. I just demo'd some K2 MissBehaved and they were not nearly as easy on the groomed runs. After all, the powder only last 1 1/2 hour and then your are working with groomed or scraped off runs. I'm thinking of buying these.
I like my Pandoras a lot in the powder and am amazed at how well they take to the groomers. However, if I had only the occasional powder day and could only have one pair of skis, my choice would be something other than Pandoras. For me, it's definitely my Volkl Auras.
These ski's handle great on grooomers. If you are skiing more icey snow however (Mid Atlantic or even Southern VT) these might not be the best choice for a all-around ski. These are really made for 70% powder and 30% groomers..
Are these considered rockers? With this...
Are these considered rockers? With this ski would it be better to go up or down a size? I have the Dynstar "Edens" (85mm) in a 165 and the Rossignol 87 in a 170 and am just wondering if the 172's in these would be too long. I want a ski that work through the deep wet snow we can get in Vermont to make skiing on my knee (minus an ACL and meniscus) bearable?
Best women's ski ever!
I love my Pandoras and use them in really deep pow in the resort, for backcountry touring and for ripping around groomers and chunder snow. They skis are soft and nimble for tree skiing and bumped out runs yet don't chatter when you want to point em. Highly recommend this ski!
How do you think these skis would work out...
How do you think these skis would work out for tele'n?? Does the 162 have the same dimensions advertised??
anyone konw if the 162 has the same...
anyone konw if the 162 has the same dimentions as the 172??
yes they are the same.
10/11 Line Pandora Ski
Start grinning. The Line Women's Pandora ski will have you hammering pow stashes in the tight trees and stealing lines form veteran powder skiers, while they watch your turns in awe. The early rise, early taper tips will get you up on top of the snow and the beefy 115mm waist will keep you there.
