What the heck is a women's ski?
If you landed on this page it’s because the ski industry has lately done an exceptional job convincing women skiers that they need women’s skis. That is not our position at Peak Ski Company. We just make really good skis, ensuring that the flex and performance of each length is correct—meaning that lighter weight women can easily bend them into turns. Ditto with lighter weight men. And while we don’t crow about weight savings because we look at ski construction holistically and know that too light means squirrely, our skis are pretty lightweight.
That said, weight does matter. This is especially true if you live to shoulder your skis to hike the bowl, traverse to that powdery face, or head out for a backcountry tour. But for certain skiers the mass of a ski also matters, even if you aren’t moving uphill. Maybe you like a ski that has a lighter and poppier feel in soft snow. Maybe you’re on the smaller side and the weight of the skis, boots, and bindings pulling at your knees on the chairlift is uncomfortable. Maybe you prefer to pivot more turns than you carve and a lighter ski enables that.
If that sounds like you, then you should check out our Peak 98 by Dav and—Michelle Parker’s favorite ski—Peak 104 by Dav. Both models feature lighter weight builds and slightly softer flex patterns for easier turning. They aren’t dumbed down. They aren’t pink. They aren’t “women’s” skis. In keeping with who we are as a company, they’re just really good skis.
