She’s not bossy. She’s the F*ckin’ Boss and when you’re struggling through Sierra cement or busting up 2-day-old crud you’re going to want a ski that’s not afraid to push back. Modeled after our best selling and award winning SOS all-mountain women's ski, the Abyss women's powder ski is a little bigger, a little stiffer and a lot more assertive because when you’re coming in hot, size and stiffness matter. Oops, did we say that out loud?
I'm aggressive on my skis, and I require them to let me charge through anything the mountain has in store- especially in Jackson. We started off the day on some variable groomers, warmer weather gave us some inconsistent slush and bumps, however the Abyss did just fine charging through them. From making wide turns to straight out bombing, the Abyss remained powerful in control while still allowing me to be playful over rollers and side hits. I wasn't hesitant to push the ski's limits.
I didn't get the opportunity to ski the Abyss in fresh, light, powder. However, I still had some fun in some new-ish snow, their performance was no different from earlier in the day. Making turns came naturally, and the stiffness of the ski excelled in deeper conditions. I recommend the Abyss to the ladies who need a ski without an upper limit- if you love to charge, this ski is for you. And it comes in lengths long enough to keep up with us shredders. -erica
