A member of 4FRNT’s lineup since 2011-12, the Blondie was a hit with our testers this season, earning Editor’s Pick status for the first time. “A high-performance ski for ladies,” said one. “Very easy to control. Lightweight yet powerful and aggressive,” said another. Built using 4FRNT’s Contour Core technology, the Blondie’s core weight is adjusted rearwards to account for the fact that many women tend to “ski from their hips.” The end result? Handling and response you can count on. “Would use these as a competitive skier, for sure,” chimed a third tester.
