A lightweight aspen core keeps the Pandora nimble, while tip-to-tail carbon filaments give it stability. Testers found it versatile and capable in a variety of turn shapes and terrain. “Great all-mountain ski, does everything well,” said Canadian crusher Jess Leahey, who also called it a “crud charmer.” Some testers found it skittery on groomers and at high speeds, so if you’re railing GS turns it might not be your daily driver. But for intermediate to advanced skiers who tackle a range of conditions, the Pandora is a solid ski to help you step up, especially if you’re searching out soft snow and floaty turns.
