If you were making a list of the most acclaimed women's big mountain skis of all time, you'd start with the DPS Yvette 112 and work your way down from there. Versatile and smooth, its 112mm footprint floats in the deepest untracked snow, while a stout backbone provides power and grip on variable (or worse) surfaces. DPS's patented PaddleTech shape features a tapered sidecut blended with the perfect amount of rocker to max out that do-anything performance. It progresses through turns with quickness and precision, and carves with the best of them. Skiers who explore every inch of the mountain will have a hard time finding a better companion than the Yvette 112.
The Tour1 construction is DPS's lightest build, precision engineered for world-beating backcountry performance. A blasa wood core is reinforced with the same aerospace carbon fiber found in their flagship Pure3 skis to shave as much weight as possible for long, fast ascents without compromising stability and grip on the downhill. Using premium materials and designed for maximum versatility, the Tour1 construction delivers a best-in-class ride for backcountry rippers--or resort skiers who favor an ultralight plank.
