2015/2016 Line Pandora 95 ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s All-Mountain Back Category.

Line’s freeride series includes two Pandora models: The 110 and the new 95 model (named after their waist widths). Testers gave the Pandora 95 its highest scores for playfulness, lowest for stability. “While not for the deepest days, this ski cuts through crud and plows easily through soft snow,” says Muecke. Line’s Aspen MacroBlock core is built with 100 percent aspen wood protected by Capwall or cap construction on the ski’s top with sidewall over the edges. A Directional Flex includes a soft but wide rockered tip (130 mm) and a stiffer, narrow tail (115 mm). “The sluggish edge grip doesn’t translate to stability,” says Balandina. “Its best attribute is flotation.”
