6 Good Telemark Skiing for Ladies
K2 Talkback 96 Ski - Women's
As the widest ski in K2's women's backcountry-specific ski lineup, the Talkback 96 Ski lives for dreamlike days of fluffy goodness, but can handle steep, technical lines with more supportive snow—all in a sub six-pound package that will have you zipping up the skintrack lap after lap.
K2 shaved some weight off the Talkback 96 this season, but without the expense of its downhill performance. A Titanal spine and carbon reinforcement keep this ski stiff and powerful, but without taking away from its nimbleness, while a paulownia wood core is to thank for its efficient weight on the climbs and the fun, poppy feel on the descent. Complete with a snow-shedding topsheet to ensure you aren't weighed down by five extra pounds of powder, you just might track out a whole backcountry bowl before you even feel tired.
Fischer My Transalp 90 Carbon Ski - Women's
Get out in the fresh snow and enjoy beautiful views with the MY Transalp 90 Carbon Ski from Fischer. This touring ski is loaded with features to make your precious time in the backcountry more enjoyable. Its wide waist keeps the ski buoyant as you find untouched snow while the early rise tip stays on top of the powder as you break trail. Fischer focused on reducing weight when designing the MY Transalp for less fatigue on the ascents and more energy for the descents. To achieve this, they constructed the ski with a poppy wood core that has AirTec channels for a light and responsive ski.
Not wanting to sacrifice performance for weight, Fischer equipped the ski with Carbon Tex, a sandwich sidewall construction, and their lightweight aeroshape design. The Carbon Tex weave dampens the chatter at high speeds that's all too common in lightweight skis. The sandwich sidewall construction furthers the ski's stability and grip at high speeds while the aeroshape design provides extreme torsion stability. All in all, the MY Transalp 90 emerges as a lightweight backcountry ski that delivers great uphill and downhill performance.
