Overview:

Realizing who this ski is built for, which isn’t necessarily my target group, I skied the Ilumina for the purpose of information gathering.  What I didn’t expect was to take it for the 2nd run because it was so fun.   I think I heard someone call the Ilumina  a Cougar Cruiser, which may not give it enough credit, yet completely makes sense.  It was super easy to ski, yet felt like it was okay to push it without being punished, almost like a hero ski where you couldn’t do anything wrong.  This ski can make a Cougar look good while she’s on the hunt and bring a smile to her face even if she doesn’t catch her prey.
