What Nordica says about the Santa Ana 102

“Nordica’s Santa Ana 102 keeps you smiling from first chair to last. As the widest ski in the Santa Ana collection, it inspires confidence with a ride that’s as playful as it is versatile. And while it’s at home in any terrain and all conditions, it loves making turns in softer snow, seeking out powder in the trees, and lapping spring slush. Thanks to a fresh construction that pairs both a wood core and an elastomer Pulse core with a sheet of terrain-specific metal, this all-mountain ski is incredibly smooth and powerful yet also forgiving. Amazing days await you — embrace them with Nordica’s Santa Ana 102.”
