Line Pandora 110 – Test 2022
SKI CANADA TEST 2022
LINE PANDORA 110 * FREERIDE/POWDER * WOMEN
BEST FOR: Women’s powder ski that can still turn on the groomers.
Wide, rockered and light left little doubt what Line designed the Pandora 110 for, and in Mount Washington’s deep and steep it made testers happy. “So much fun in the powder,” swooned Deanna Papineau. And 14-year-old Zak Baikie didn’t care he was on a women’s ski; after four laps he said, “Amazing! It floated above the powder and turned perfectly.” Similar to its freeride-touring Vision skis, the Pandora has a mixed paulownia and maple wood core to which Line added its THC laminate, a mix of aramid, carbon and fibreglass the company says works together to absorb different vibration frequencies for a damp ski without metal. It also tapered the material at the tips, cutting 100g per ski. At 110mm underfoot, and light, it’s not intended for firm-snow performance. Not surprisingly, when Papineau really picked up speed on slick groomers, she said the ski chattered. It’s at home in softer conditions offering a stable and responsive feel. A fine choice for a fresh-snow ski or a touring set-up.
