Intermediate Ski Comparisons: <--Click for help in deciding between this and some of our other intermediate skis.
Ideal Target Skier: Casual Cruiser: Sticking mainly to the groomed runs and always keeping speed in check, a Casual Cruiser doesn't even bother with the off trail snow, moguls, jumps, etc.
Dura Edge: Treated solid steel edge holds up to abuse well. The hardness of the steel will keep its sharpness for a long time, and reduces the need to get your edges sharpened as often.
Cap Construction: The topsheet of this ski drapes over the edge to form a clean and rounded finish to the side of the ski. This style of construction adds some torsional rigidity, and helps reduce topsheet chipping when the skis hit each other.
Textured Surface: Ideal for repelling wear and tear on the skis surface. Textured ski surfaces are rough surfaces to the ski that hide or repel scratches keep your skis looking new long after they are not. Originally designed for rental skis for obvious reasons, this surface is now available on a wide variety of retail skis as well since everyone likes their skis to look nice.
Active camber is a traditional base, essentially the absence of tip rocker. Active camber skis have superior edge hold on hard surfaces and at high speeds, but are more difficult to ski off-piste.
Multi-cell core: This synthetic core reduces the weight of the ski, to reduce fatigue for all day skiers. The ski is able to turn easier and quicker, and only loses a minimal amount of torsional rigidity.
Women's Flex Zones: Four regions in the tip and tail area aid the skier by influencing the way the ski turns. Essentially with these skis it is exceptionally easy to 'smear' your turns, which is the first way that beginners start to control their speed and navigate down the mountain in control. The flex zones also make initiating carved turns easier for when the skier progresses to that level.
Women's Heel Lift: These skis will have your heels slightly raised in comparison to your toes. The point of this is to help keep you in a natural, athletic posture, reducing strain and fatigue on the spine and lower-back muscles.
Square Tail: These skis have a square shaped tail, which adds stability to turns on hardpack as well as very steep terrain. Probably not a park ski, though :)
