Victa 87 Ti Ski
Armada's Women's Victa 87 Ti Ski is a serious resort ripper designed for ladies ready to crush the frontside from first chair to last call. The 85-87 millimeter waist definitely makes the Victa a resort-oriented ski, and while it may not be your weapon of choice for post-storm pow slaying, the ski's rockered tip keeps you afloat when the morning snow report surprises you with a decent refresh.
Constructed with a light wood core, the Victa 87 has a smooth and consistent flex, while carbon and KEVLAR® stringers add a fun, lively pop. Layers of Titanal add stability while you're clocking high speeds and bring enough power to blast through chundery crud. Armada finished off these planks with their Comp Series bases, which enhance speed and glide when you tear up any section of the hill.

Took a tumble and some awesome turns!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I was #blessed enough to take these puppies up on a powderday at Brighton. I am a solidly intermediate skier so I was little concerned about the length but they proved to be a lot of fun! They're super easy to control under foot and carve nicely, I would recommend them for anyone looking to do a lot at a resort. If you're looking for something backcountry, go wider and longer. They held up well in powder as well. Highly recommend for someone who's not a complete beginner and is interested in getting into some gnarlier stuff.
Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preffered style of skiing. For example, an expert skier on in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
