Tricia: The 2021 Santa Ana lineup has adopted the construction that was introduced in the 2020 Santa Ana 88. As much as I enjoyed the 88, the 93 gave me just a titch more confidence in steeper and slightly deeper terrain. Unlike the previous generation of Santa Ana, where I fell in between sizes, the new size range fits my length choice much better and has helped me fall in love with this ski. Steep chutes at Jackson Hole were a joy, and I couldn’t get enough of the low angle trees and moguls when skiing this ski. This could easily be a one ski quiver.
Insider tip: If you’re looking for something more groomer-oriented, check out the Santa Ana 88.
