Why Buy Women’s Gear?

A woman’s boot or ski really will help you have more fun on the hill.

It wasn’t that long ago that most “women-specific” skis were just men’s skis stripped of their metal (and integrity) and gussied up with flowery topsheets. Our female testers crammed their test cards with complaints (“noodle” was the operative word), then happily went home to their unisex models when the test was over. Now more manufacturers are conceiving and building women’s skis from the ground up, with all the technology and integrity that women deserve.

Perhaps the two most important things you can do are to select the proper size initially, and keep your ski tuned so it can perform as intended.

There are subtleties to sizing, but here’s the fundamental rule: If you’re an expert, look for a length that’s about forehead-high; if you’re a novice or an intermediate, go neck/chin-high.
