LINE claim that their Pandora top sheets shed snow faster so you can proudly display LINE graphics from the chairlift. Admittedly, I chuckled upon first reading this but after checking out the Pandora collection’s new graphics… well… I’m fully convinced.
“You will want to showcase the… Pandoras at all costs”
You will want to showcase the 2020 / 21 Pandoras at all costs. LINE’s women’s freeride range is back for 2020, with a new look but the same tried and tested structure. As the narrowest and softest ski of the four Pandora options, the Pandora 84 is an ability-inclusive hardpack explorer.
LINE Pandora 84 Build
At 84mm underfoot, the Pandora is the narrowest women’s ski in our line up. Thanks to its slim waist – not too much wider than your average piste ski – the Pandora 84 is a quick-footed and lively ski that loves to be thrown from edge to edge.

The Pandora 84 is also the lightest women’s ski that we’ve selected at only 1339g per ski. LINE did this feat by using an 100% aspen core, thinner core material and sidewalls in the ski tips, and cap construction.
Essentially, wherever physically possible, LINE have streamlined the Pandora 84 to create a featherweight ski. Ultra light skis might ring alarm bells for more powerful skiers, but the Pandora 84 remains surprisingly reliable at speed and fierce enough on edge for the majority of skiers.
