No one likes a square—and those planky, one-dimensional point-and-shoot boards and the wimpy, uphill-only noodles are just so booooring. Lucky for you, the Dynafit Women's Baltoro Ski is the grooviest stick around—light enough to fly up the skinner, with enough of a downhill pedigree to let you ski that high-consequence line you've been jonesing for. Best of all, it weighs 10% less than the men's version, so you'll leave him sputtering in your wake before you're halfway to the top.
To meet the needs of hardcore mountaineers, Dynafit constructed the Baltoro with a paulownia wood Impact core for light skinning and forgiving skiing, but reinforced it with fiberglass and carbon to give it enough backbone to handle serious skiing in tough terrain where falling would be a seriously bad idea. It's been firmed up further with a 3-piece sidewall construction, which resists torsion and stands up to rocks, ice, and the general beating that skis can take on long expeditions.
Snow conditions tend to be a crapshoot when you're heading into serious alpine environments, but the Baltoro features an early-rise Scoop Rocker that's designed to glide over uneven snow but retain nearly full-length contact when laid on its side, so you don't have to sacrifice edge hold to have a versatile ski for serious ice, corn, and surprise pow stashes. It's also got a dual-radius sidecut, which makes it easy to adjust your turn shapes without feeling like you're fighting your skis, and a sintered graphite base that holds wax and stays fast, so you can cut loose when you're home free and enjoying some big, sweeping turns. There are Dynafit-skin-compatible Speedskin attachments at the tip and tail, too, saving you hassle when you're gearing up in the morning.
Explore glaciers, couloirs and powder-filled glades with the light and versatile Dynafit Baltoro skis.

The Baltoro sits right in the middle of the Dynafit ski line. It is not designed for spandex-wearing randonee racers, nor cliff-hucking big-mountain freeriders. It strikes a balance in between those two extremes, making it a good choice for those who just want to get out and enjoy the backcountry, doing a little bit of everything along the way. The distinctive feature of the Baltoro is the relatively wide geometry, which offers maximum support at each turn. In addition, the 3D surface guarantees maximum torsional rigidity and ultra-smooth performance.
