Same name, totally different ski for 2021. Nordica has spent the last year completely revamping the the Santa Ana line to create a ski that's more forgiving, more approachable, and hopefully ultimately more fun. The last time the Santa Anas got overhauled in 2017, they became one of the first women's all-mountain skis to have two full sheets of metal, basically just a women's Nordica Enforcer. These new sticks, however, remove a lot of that metal from the construction and follow the trend of the last couple seasons to make the ski lighter, easier to turn, and more fun when the snow isn't groomed. It's a classic confidence-booster ski, the kind of ski that as an intermediate or advanced-intermediate skier, you can get on and feel like you can crush anything in any condition and it'll make you a better skier along the way. If you skied the Santa Ana at all in the last three years and thought it was too much ski, you'll like this new version. 

FAQ:

What's the difference between the old (2018-20) Santa Ana and the new (2021-) Santa Ana?

I touched on this above a little bit, but basically the newer versions are lighter, more playful, and easier to handle. The new Santa Ana has a lot less metal and it'll be a much easier ski for an intermediate skier to hop on and have an awesome time from the get-go. However, for expert skiers and people who liked how solid the older versions felt exiting turns at speeds, this will honestly be a bit of a step backwards. In the past the Santa Ana has been a favorite of ex-racers looking to get on their first all-mountain ski, this new ski isn't that. If you're an expert or ex-racer you'll have a better time on a Volkl Secret 92, a 2021 Elan Ripstick 94, or even a Blizzard Black Pearl 88. (Really!) The new Santa Ana is geared more at the skier who can do everything, but is a little more hesitant on the most technical terrain. For what it's worth, if you have a very good memory and skied the gen 1 Santa Ana (2016-17), this new one is a lot like that.

TLDR: The Santa Ana got redone for a more forgiving, intermediate-accessible ski.
