Chloe Wexler


Chloe Wexler brought some serious ski ability to our test. She learned to ski at Mad River Glen and if you’ve ever skied with someone that grew up on that mountain you’ll be familiar with the implications. Mad River Glen relies on natural snow and terrain and the skiers that come from that mountain are absolute rippers in moguls and trees. Chloe has a very precise ski style and can be found skiing at high speeds in all sorts of different terrain. A train of our male ski testers tried to keep up with her in the bumps one run and some of us (including this author) had to be at our best to stay on her heels. It’s no wonder she describes her favorite terrain as bumps, steeps, and trees!

  1. Hi SE,
    Shopping for an advance / expert ski. 45 year old 165cm 50kg. Skip preference steeps and off trail, love powder when you can get it. Ski style short quick precise turns over speed and carving, very technical skier. Learnt to ski on straights in Australia (think east coast conditions so know how to hold and edge) so initially found carved skiis skied me rather than me skiing them.

    Any advice.
    Thanks
    Natalie

    1. Hi Natalie!

      Are you familiar with the Nordica Santa Ana line? I would expect you’d really like the Santa Ana 93. It performs well across a variety of terrain. Short enough turn radius that you can make some quick, precise turns, but it’s also stable enough for high speeds. The rocker profile and width helps give it good performance in powder, too. In my opinion it’s one of the more versatile all mountain skis for advanced/expert level women. Take a look and let us know what you think. If you don’t like the look of it, let us know!

  2. Hi interested in 2018 Yumi!
    Profile: Height 5’4”, 115lb in weight
    Intermediate, average on speed, which length is suitable?

    1. Hi Lin!

      I think the 154 cm would be a nice length for you. The 161 cm is almost as tall as you, which is often a bit too long for intermediate level skiers. I think the 147 cm would feel a little bit too short; probably a little unstable for you. 154 cm should work great!
