G3 Genuine Guide Gear District Ski -
Build an even better ski and they will come. That seems to be the mantra behind the District, a stepped up version of G3's very popular Tonic. Part of the Mountain Series, this backcountry ski features a 112 mm width designed for short trips and aggressive descents. The G3 District features an Early Rise 3 profile with a cambered mid section plus a longer and higher rise in both tip and tail of the ski. G3 claims this design results in more controlled turns in hard snow and enhanced performance in softer snow. In other words, this ski delivers just what you need and when you need it. Power Light construction combines a titanal aluminum sheet, poplar/paulownia wood core and dual density sidewalls, a composition that gives the G3 District power and stability in all types of snow and conditions, while maintaining that low weight so you never get dragged down. On piste or off, you will love skiing the G3 District skis, designed for intermediate to advanced freeride skiers. Go forth and go wild.
- PowerLight construction, with 2 layers of titanal, for stability and dampness
- Enjoy confident descents without compromising on weight and ease of touring
- Early rise tip and tail
- Semi-cap top sheet with dual-density sidewalls for positive power transmission
Emerging from the G3 Tonic’s 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.

With 112 mm underfoot, the G3 District skis are wider, and floatier than the similiar G3 Tonic. The early-rise tip, makes the District initiate a turn, with barely a thought, and the progressive camber makes it hold a turn without wavering. The semi-cap construction reduces weight for less touring effort. The District embodies, the best example of, the delicious modern blend of freeride performance and mountaineering tourability.
