If your home hill serves up soft conditions more often than not, the G3 District All-Mountain Skis will make an excellent quiver of one for resort and backcountry skiing. Measuring in at 112mm underfoot and designed with tip and tail rise in its profile, the District offers uncontested soft snow performance. You'll float like the proverbial butterfly on these sticks, while the Titanal laminate, light camber and semi-cap construction will keep you carving when the powder runs out. Mixing a lightweight wood core design and metal laminate, the District offers modest weight and great dampening for all mountain ripping and backcountry touring.

Built on the dimensions of the cherished G3 Tonic, the G3 District 100 skis are perkier due to the Powerlight construction. Nimble in tight trees or gullies, the District, at 100 mm underfoot, is a great choice for the advanced skier seeking a versatile ski inbounds or outside the rope.EarlyRise 2.5 rocker has early tip rise with some camber underfoot and a slight tail rise-- ABS/TPU dual density sidewall-- Titanal aluminum layer for dampening-- PowerLight Construction with a light and lively Paulownia/Poplar wood core-- P-Tex 2000 Electra base
Your district is the backcountry, and you like to get there under your own power. With the District 112, G3 offers up the ultimate combination of lightweight touring performance and freeride charging capabilities that will help you bring your off-piste descents to a whole new level. A 112mm gives you generous float, and EarlyRise 3 rocker profile gives the ski awesome maneuverability and stability for your skiing pleasure. At a claimed weight of 8. 2 pounds per pair, the G3 is more than a pound lighter per pair than most of the competition's offerings, and therefore saves you a significant amount of energy on the uphill. This weight savings is achieved through the use of a lightweight yet strong paulownia/poplar wood core. Although the District 112 is extremely lightweight for its size, the use of two layers of Titanal aluminum and dual-density vertical sidewalls make the ski exceptionally stable at high speeds and in crud. G3's own EarlyRise 3 rocker profile places a long area of regular camber underfoot for more edge-hold and stability and early rise in the tip and tail for powder float and easy turn initiation. Strap on the G3 District 112 this season and take your backcountry adventures to the next level.
Evolving from the extremely popular G3 Tonic, the G3 District 100 telemark/randonee skis have the same dimensions, but feature PowerLight construction that yields more stable, fun and lighter skis.
Emerging from the G3 Tonics success, the larger G3 District is sure to earn even higher cult status among backcountry skiers. With 112mm underfoot, progressive camber line and significant early rise tip and tail, the District is primed for short range missions and deep snow. The ultralight semi-cap construction paves the way for this wider ski without increasing the weight, staying true to the magic mix of performance and tourability that earned the smaller Tonic its fame.
