La Sportiva GTS
Here's what other sites are saying:
Thinking about your first do-or-die turn into a skinny couloir or rock-studded cirque should convince you that the women-specific flex pattern and tuned sidecut of the La Sportiva Women's GTS Alpine Touring Ski is necessary for your touring and ski mountaineering aspirations. Not for riding lifts and poaching hot tubs, this backcountry-specific plank was built to go further and higher into the alpine with each eye-opening tour. Inspiring confidence with every easy skin and predictable turn, the GTS grants you the freedom to bounce in powder, slip into chutes, and descend the icy peaks you've always dreamed of gracing with your tracks.
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.
