Offered on the men's side in 93, 99, 105, and 117 versions, the formidable Kore is going to also be available in women's versions (93 and 99) for next year. Don't worry, ladies—these are the same Kores but with more sizes and a slightly more forward recommended mount point. The other Kores will also be offered in shorter sizes, opening the line up to more skiers. Also important in the 2020 Head skis lineup: the revered Supershapes get fresh paint jobs but no other changes.
On the boot side, Head carries its Kore momentum into the freeride touring market with the Kore 1 and Kore 2 models.

There's West Coast ice. And then there's East Coast ice. And make no mistake -- it's a whole different animal.
You may hear Coloradans bemoaning "dust on crust." An inconvenient stretch followed by small pockets of snow where skiers take refuge. Nobody likes dust on crust. But East Coasters, you know ice on a whole different level. Ice frozen for the better half of the year, tinged yellow. Runs that resemble frozen falls. Vermonters, take pride in your ice. Own the ice. BE the ice!
But first, you'll need the finest ice-taming tools. Check out Powder7's top picks for the best women's carving skis of 2019.

2019 Head Super Joy Description:
The undisputed speed queen of the JOY lineup, the Super Joy rips groomers at ludicrous speeds while keeping you in complete control. Built with the same groundbreaking and lightweight technology as all of the JOY skis, the Super Joy is frontside oriented and unapologetic about it. It does incorporate Allride rocker to make turn initiation a breeze and it will help if a spring groomer day is interrupted by a snow squall. The rest of Heads ski technologies are present here, including ERA 3.0 and a Graphene Koroyd Carbon Construction. The Super Joy; high class with a bit of a wild side. Sounds like fun to us.
