Even the most powerful and aggressive women skiers should use women’s skis that are designed with women’s bodies in mind. It isn’t sexist, it’s biomechanical! Most women’s bodies are built differently than most men’s bodies, and women’s snow skis should reflect this difference. In general, research shows that women have more posterior weight in a skiing stance than men do. To accommodate for this, women’s skis with bindings feature bindings that are further forwards. This makes it easier for women to turn and achieve power.
Twin tip skis for women, as well as women’s powder skis, or women’s all-mountain skis, manufacturers don’t just shrink men’s skis, paint the topdeck pink and then call them lady’s equipment. True women’s skis are completely redesigned to correspond to the differences in male and female bodies. They are wider at the tip relative to the waist, to be more responsive to women’s muscle groups. Of course, women in Australia, South America, Asia, and elsewhere are built differently, and some women have more athletic frames, more or less muscle tone, and a variety of fat and muscle distributions. This means that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for women. The skis that are right for you are the ones that you ski most comfortably in! We can help you decide – Just ask!
The best women's skis for you will be dependent on:
- Your level of experience.
- Your size.
- Your budget.
- Your riding style.
- Are you rocker or camber?
- Are you skiing powder?
- Are you skiing on the Slopes?
- Or are you skiing cross country?
Yes, it is worth buying women's skis, if you plan on going on more than one skiing trip over the next few years. Although it is easy to hire skis, having a pair of skis you are familiar with, which are tailored to your specific needs, can make all the difference on the slopes. Women's skis are also designed specifically for women and are worth purchasing.
To choose what size skis to get for women, you should stand the ski up front of you. You want a ski where the tip ends between your chin and the top of your head. If you are a beginner or intermediate skier, a shorter length is required. This is also true if you are lighter than average for your height. If you need help with sizing, send us an e-mail or check out our Ski Buying Guide.
The best women's skis for beginners should:
- Be within the range for your height.
- On the shorter end of the scale.
- Have the tip of the ski closer to your chin.
- Have a softer flex.
- Be relatively narrow.
- Combine rocker and camber.
- Have the correct bindings.
- Be made by a brand you can trust.
