Hi Divas, I waited for the black pearls 88 to go on sale, but took too long to pull the trigger and all the local shops are out of the size I want. They do have the Santa Ana 88 for a really good price in my size. I haven’t tried this ski but the shop did say they are a bit stiffer than the BP88. Anybody have any feedback on these skis. I have demoed the SA 93 and quite liked how stable they were and I tried them on really rough and icy conditions. Am wondering if the 88 would be similar. Thanks in advance!
