Though not specifically a ski just for women, the lightweight core construction of the FX104 fits in well to the women's Powder category. "It's not for the timid," cautioned Sutton, "but this serious ski is for aggressive, confident women who want a supremely stable ride." Pro athlete Chris Davenport, who skied Everest's Lhotse Face last season, helped develop the freeski FX line to create a versatile freeski that's strong enough to handle descents but light enough for touring. A lightweight wood core and weight-and-vibration reducing dual Hollowtech technology (the colorful milled out sections in the tip and tail) offers stability and hard snow performance. "It carves like a race ski," said Alder. "It's incredibly solid at speed."
