10 GREAT PISTE SKIS

If you love nothing more than skiing groomed runs and working your way around the piste map, then the right pair of piste skis will help you to make the most of every turn. Here are 10 Great Piste skis that are gracing the slopes this season.


Atomic Women's Cloud 9 + Lithium 10

The Cloud 9 is the little black dress of Atomic’s piste range – elegant, flattering and always right wherever you wear it. In fact, Cloud 9’s combination of style and substance has made it one of the world’s best-selling piste skis for women. New this year, a Servotec Light on top has been added, giving you extra running stability for even more effortless gliding on piste. With its elegant black and white design and punched leather top sheet, it’s the ski for a someone who is looking for control and easy turning on the frontside of the mountain. The combination of all of the features make it super easy to control: the Piste Rocker makes turning a breeze, while the Step Down Sidewall increases edge grip below the binding. This is a powerful piste ski with no compromises.

Head Epic Joy SLR + Joy 11 SLR

There is no lighter ski than the Epic Joy: thanks to Graphene, the Nobel prize winning material, which is the lightest, thinnest and strongest material in the world. Despite its lightweight properties, the ski is also a top performer. The Allride Rocker construction lies behind its handling characteristics. The ski is manoeuvrable and buoyant. The Epic Joy is appropriate for all skill levels, and in terms of ride itself? The name says it all.

Salomon Women's W-Max 10 + XT10

The Salomon W-Max is a fantastic carving ski for women looking for a very quick ski edge to edge with smoothness and stability. Salomon's Oversized Active Contact Sidewalls deliver energy directly to the edges of your skis that increases edge hold and responsiveness. A small amount of rocker in the tip will initiate turns very quickly and the camber underfoot will spring you into your next turn. If you are looking for an excellent carving ski that will not be overly demanding the Salomon W-Max will be the perfect choice. The W Max 10 has a Pulse Pad created by Salomon to improve shock absorption and increase the lifespan of the gear. This is a high performance and sporty ski, which delivers power, precision and control – perfect for going fast with more confidence.

Volkl Flair 76 Elite + vMotion

The Volkl Flair offers enough stability to be a great support, while still packing enough power and energy to really have fun at speed. Its versatility allows the skier to really enjoy all areas of the mountain, but the good support underfoot and easy turn initiation means that you never feel overweight or uncomfortable. The Flair series combines style with the passion for sporty skiing without sacrificing any technology, with the 76 Elite displaying brilliant edge hold and smooth turn initiation that makes life on piste a lot of fun. A central sidewall has a cap construction in the tips and tails that make for easy manoeuvring and a vertical sidewall underfoot that improves your edge hold, even on icy terrain. This ski is built for lightweight performance – without compromising on the high-performance characteristics you expect from Volkl.

Volkl Racetiger GS + rMotion

This versatile Giant Slalom ski offers category-leading high speed performance all over the mountain. Complete with rMotion bindings, this setup is ideal for the early morning, high speed cruiser runs when the corduroy stripes are perfect. This is a very comfortable ski that absorbs the terrain and requires very little physical engagement. In downhill rides, comfort and accessibility are noticeable straight away. This is a ski that performs best at speed, while still being easy to handle, and will go where you take it without flinching.

Rossignol Pursuit 200 + Xpress 10 B83

An accessible on-trail caving ski, the Pursuit 200 delivers power, precision, and playful carving performance for beginner to intermediate skiers. The Power Turn Rocker technology allows easy curve entry, and the curvature radius here makes it a very handy ski. The grip is excellent on this ski, as is the stability when the speed increases. This all-mountain all-rounder ski definitely prefers groomers to powder runs. These skis are powerful, precise and smooth. The light weight construction and power of carbon combine with the power turn rocker design for an epic carving experience.

Rossignol Pursuit 500 + NX 12 Konect Dual WTR

The Pursuit 500 Ltd uses Rossignol’s latest Prop Tech Technology, which is where the top layer of the structure is cut lengthwise for superior power transfer and enhanced ski control. The result is an adaptive torsional flex to absorb changing terrain, this offers greater grip and precision from the skis on the hard pack. This ski also has Prop Tip and Prop Tail which is where Rossignol have milled out areas of the ski in the tip and tail to reduce swing weight and aid with turn initiation. The Pursuit 500 is one of the more advanced skis in their range and therefor offers optimum performance.

Rossignol Strato ST + SPX 12 Konect Dual WTR

The Limited edition Strato ST is Exclusive to Snow & Rock in the UK. This Rossignol "Classic" is a dedicated on-trail carving machine loaded with horsepower, precision, and playful hard snow performance for expert skiers seeking the ultimate precision and performance. Featuring a Power Turn Rocker profile and new Prop Tip technology for ultra-light swing weight, Strato ST delivers ultra-quick turn initiation and explosive power to snap fast, confident turns across the fall line. The narrow 68mm waist width rolls quickly edge-to-edge while titanal laminate construction delivers power, stability, and smooth-cruising hard-snow performance that brings excitement back to the hardpack.

Head Supershape I.Magnum + PRD 12 MBS

Staying true to the Head Supershape line-up, the i.Magnum is fast, smooth, and incredibly stable. The i.Magnum deserves its reputation as being one of the easiest to use high-end piste skis, delivering easy to handle, all-day, on-piste performance for high-end recreational carving. A new tail shape and the sidecut extending further into the tip has improved edge grip. The core has been tweaked too with Graphene added to the construction for better balance and power. A dampening layer imbedded in the core eliminates any chatter you may get at higher speeds, giving you that smooth quiet ride you would expect from Head. Kinetic Energy Recovery System otherwise known as KERS technology works like a jet engine on the back of the ski, stiffening the tail of the ski as you come through your turn giving the ski additional power and acceleration. Head’s Supershape series is an unmatched collection of carving machines, but it doesn’t just like to carve, the Supershape i.Magnum insists on it.

Salomon X-Max X10 + XT12

Just like its predecessor, much of the technology found inside these skis was developed by Salomon for their world-cup winning race skis, so if high speed turns on smooth steeps are what your skiing is all about then you’ll definitely have a good time on these planks. One such technology is the Carve Rocker profile – this makes carving easier and more intuitive, you can feel the ski wanting to carve as opposed to having to force it into an arc. The ski is very smooth and forgiving, whilst displaying race inspired sidewalls for excellent edge grip and smooth power distribution, with a full woodcore giving optimum stability and rebound on hard snow. It’s the best balance of power, precision and control. The X-Max X10 is aimed at those skiers who have a love of going fast, love high speed turns, and now really want a set of skis that will let rip and fly.
