We all wish we could have a ski for each snowy condition. Luckily for our finances, the La Sportiva Women's GTS Alpine Touring Ski handles powder days in the backcountry and hardpack days on the skintrack. With a midfat waist and a superlight weight, the GTS can bag big powdery peaks and drop down wind-crusted crunch for a versatile performance. A traditional camber profile gives you stability on hard and variable snow and provides supreme edge hold while at speed. La Sportiva's Fusion ABS sidewalls work with the lightweight tri-axial and bi-axial fiber laminates to keep the GTS stiff on speedy descents, and a softer tip and tail allow for easy cruising through deeper snow. The lightweight Karuba wood core gives a poppy ride when you're bouncing down steep snowy sides. La Sportiva also equipped the GTS with a fast and durable P-Tex 2000 sintered base with 1. 8mm steel edges and rubber reinforcements at the tip and tail for a smooth ride that won't buck you like a bronco. This ski also has a plate under the binding mount for a secure connection between binding and ski. The GTS is compatible with La Sportiva's pre-cut HiGlide skins. A slightly longer radius makes this ski specifically ideal for steep terrain where side slipping and jump turns are in order. La Sportiva designed the GTS with a flex patter and adjusted sidecut engineered just for women.
Incite your passion for ski mountaineering and touring on La Sportiva's GTS Ski for women. The lightweight Karuba wood core gives lively pop, plus you can breathe easy since it's FSC environmentally certified & constructed without the use of toxic chemicals. The slightly softer tip and superior control underfoot inspire confidence in soft snow as well as less than ideal conditions. A slightly longer radius makes them ideal on steep terrain when side slipping & jump turns are required.
