When it comes to the best powder skis for women, there are three exceptional powder skis you'll definitely want to take a look at. In the past, it was difficult to find powder skis designed specifically for women. Unlike regular carving skis, powder skis are designed to float effortlessly above the snow without making too many sharp turns or adjustments. So, if you enjoy exploring fresh powder and new territories, then a set of high-quality powder skis may be the right choice for you. Keep in mind that most of the top powder skis for women are designed for advanced skiers rather than beginners. Also, be sure to shop through a retailer that has a decent return policy in case you are dissatisfied with the powder skis.
The first high-quality pair of powder skis on our list is the Women’s 2012 K2 Miss Behaved Skis. These snow skis feature a sizable 102 millimeter waist, which allows the skis to float exceptionally while still being capable of easily navigating groomed trails. In other words, these skis are great for both trail riding and off trail riding. The design of these skis feature a flex and core pattern that uses lightweight materials and blended bamboo to make the skis faster and stronger. With elevated tips, these skis are great for soft snow and heavier snow. The Women’s 2012 K2 Miss Behaved Skis also use underfoot cambers for extra power and control in well-groomed snow. These skis come with a one year warranty and can be purchased for roughly $700.
Another great pair of powder skis for women is the Women’s 2012 Rossignol S7 Skis. These snow skis are great for intermediate and advanced skiers looking to explore the exciting world of powder skiing. With high quality powder turn rockers, you will experience unparalleled flotation above the snow. These skis also provide easy steering and responsive turning. If you’re looking for a great pair of full twin tip skis, the Women’s 2012 Rossignol S7 Skis are certainly worthy of your consideration. With powerful wood cores and a patented weight reduction system, you will be able to glide above the powder without a care in the world. These skis feature a tip width of 140 mm, a waist width of 110 mm and a tail width of 118 mm. The Women’s 2012 Rossignol S7 Skis cost roughly $700.
Finally, we have the Women’s Line Pandora Alpine Skis. These exceptional snow skis feature resilient macro block cores with symmetric flex systems to provide incredible responsiveness and style. With raised tails and tapered tips, you won’t have to worry about hooking the snow when gliding along fresh powder. The long tails used in these skis provide increased stability, which makes them suitable for all types of terrain. With the Women’s Line Pandora Alpine Skis, you can make the best of just about any snow conditions. You can purchase the Women’s Line Pandora Alpine Skis for roughly $650.
