Like the Mantra, this is an ideal ski for an East Coast transplant. A stiff, adept carver, the Aura has enough width for modest powder days. “A Jill-of-all trades” said one tester, “the Aura offers precision, efficiency, float, and response in one package.” A wide tip bites and pulls the Aura intently across the hill into fluid GS arcs. Intermediates and mellow skiers may find it a tad powerful. Experts will appreciate the craftsmanship and performance of this classic all-mountain ski.
