Since making its debut, the Santa Ana 88 has earned a reputation for being smooth and stable. And now—thanks to an entirely new construction and shape designed for on-trail terrain—our best-selling women’s ski is more versatile than ever. Equipped with the narrowest waist in the Santa Ana collection, it pairs a wood core with carbon and a sheet of terrain-specific metal. This boosts your confidence by enhancing edge hold and dampening vibrations for a smooth and balanced ride. It also produces a ski that’s especially easy to control and maneuver. With an emphasis on fun, the Santa Ana 88 provides an entirely new way to experience the trail.
STYLE: All Mountain
ABILITY: Intermediate / Advanced
All Mountain Rocker Profile . Smooth rocker at both tip and tail with camber underfoot provides balanced performance anywhere on the mountain.
True Tip Technology . By trimming the amount of heavy ABS plastic in the tip and extending the lightweight wood core into this area with a tapered shape that further reduces weight, Nordica increase the playfulness and maneuverability while maintaining the classic powerful and stable feel.
Energy TI Balsa. Race inspired technology full wood core with a sheet of metal for top end power transmission, torsional stability, and edge grip.
Carbon Reinforced Chassis. Nordica's new carbon reinforced chassis weighs about 35% less than traditional glass. Full length carbon strips not only reduce weight, they also increase the ski's strength and stability. The result is a stronger, lighter, more stable ski that's also more playful and versatile.
Terrain Specific Metal. The size and shape of the Titanal layer is specifically engineered for each ski width, providing stability where you need it and flexibility where you want it.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
