D: 139-110-128 R: 15.5M (169) L: 161, 169, 177 STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Flotation WEAKNESS: Playfulness The Santa Ana 110 is a refined thoroughbred: smooth, solid, and dependable. Nordica sandwiches a lightweight wood core in two sheets of metal, giving this ski a damp and stable feel. It has the width to float above the bottom chunder in moderate pow and is utterly unflappable in afternoon chop. Generous camber underfoot makes it more directional than smeary, and remains best for advanced and expert skiers who like to go fast. “There for you when you need it,” said Gleason.
