Santa Ana 84 is the skinniest width ski in the Santa Ana lineup. Designed with the hardpack skiers in mind it will be sure to grip and rip the mountain. While it was designed more for hardpack you can still take this ski to the back side and get some good performance out of it due to the excellent construction of the ski. You know what they say.. house don't fall when the bones are good. The core is made of wood with carbon to help stabilize when on edge and transfer the power throughout the turn.
