With a proclivity toward arcing up the groomers, Frontside skis are the daily go-to for many skiers. Waists range between 72 and 85 mm, and those in the 70s are one-dimensional on purpose. Their narrow waists and construction are often borrowed from race skis, including full wood cores and strengthening sheets of titanium to mimic World Cup carve machines—with a softer touch. As waist widths increase, so does skiing versatility. Women-specific constructions often include lighter densities of core material in strategic places to soften the flex.
