Nordica Santa Ana Unlimited 88 Women's Skis

The Nordica Santa Ana Unlimited ski is a women's specific all-mountain ski that defines all-mountain versatility. Whether lapping lift serve runs all day or charging up the skin track in the back country, this is the Unlimited Series narrowest and lightest offering. Featuring an 88-millimeter waist, this ski loves to carve on the groomers and hardpack, but also has nice floating capabilities with its All-Mountain Rocker. With an early ride tip and slight tail rocker, the Santa Ana 88 would stay on top nicely of a 3-6" pallet of white, while also exceling in bumps, steeps and technical terrain. Throw on a pair of skins and charge up the skin track in the back country with this lightweight charger weighing in at a scant 1250 grams in a 158- centimeter length. This ski is equally at home at the resort or as a touring ski, making it an ideal quiver of one ski for areas like the Northeast that don't receive large amounts of snow. Whatever you ski or wherever you decide to take your skiing journeys, the Nordica Santa Ana Unlimited 88 skis will provide all- mountain capabilities in an impressive light weight package that will sure to please any female ripper.

What is the difference between the Unlimited and regular Santa Ana 88 and what would be the reasons to get one over the other?
Question by: Elizabeth on Jan 23, 2022, 2:17 PM
Hi Elizabeth,

The Unlimited is lighter and has no metal in it core, so its a bit more approachable and less stiff. The regular Santa Anna has layers of Titanal metal in its core which make it much stiffer in flex and you will need to be on your "A" game with these at all times.

Hope this helps!

Buying a ski for my wife. She is 5’9” 150 lbs. and she skis only blues and greens right now, new to skiing but expert snow boarded so picking it up fast. Wedge christy on blue and parallel on green. She wants an AT set up to use on the resort for exercise while she’s learning, with the hope of joining me in the backcountry eventually. Everyone keep recommending the Santa Ana 88 but I’m concerned about the metal in the ski for her, she liked the non carbon maven when she was on it once but I can’t put a shift binding on it due to it being a system. Would the Santa Ana 88 be good for an intermediate with a shift binding on it? I want something she won’t out grow and something that isn’t too much for her to continue to progress on. Also what size would you recommend for her size?

HI Charlie!
I agree that the Sant Ana 88 with metal is a bit too much. The Unlimited is a better choice than the regular. I'd also take a look at Maven 93C if the 86 was liked: https://www.skiessentials.com/2022-atomic-maven-93-c-women-s-skis.html I'd go with something in the mid 160's for length. Have fun!

I am in love with my older Black Pearl 88's at 152cm. I feel like I can "dance" in these skis, and they have made the bumps so much easier for me to play in. They are, however, getting old and worn out. Also, I am a tele skier. Would the Santa Ana Unlimited 88 be comparable to the older Black Pearls? I hear women are not liking the new BP's.
Question by: Marti on Mar 19, 2022, 11:37 AM
HI Marti!
I think you'll like the new Pearls just as much as the old ones. If you're looking to try out a stiffer and heavier ski, then the Santa Ana 88 is a great choice, but the Pearl is still a fantastic option for all-mountain playfulness and performance.
