G3 Genuine Guide Gear Empress 115 Ski -

The Empress 115 from G3 is a women's specific ski with a progressive, continuous reverse camber profile for fun in the powder, while still holding an edge on hard pack. The Empress is G3s fattest and floatiest women's ski, amending the Empire's award-winning construction into a smaller ski with a slightly softer flex. A big mountain / powder ski that gets lighter skiers out playing in the pow.


Side Cut: 145 / 115 / 126

Weight (single): 1.9 kg / 4.2 lb

Series: Big Mountain / Powder, Women's Specific

Construction: PowerRide

Camber: SweetRise 2

Lining and Layers:

  • Progressive, continuous reverse camber profile is matched to the ski's sidecut radius for powerful, fast, big lines in deep powder, and they still hold an edge on hardpack


  • PowerRide construction (ABS sidewall)
  • Glossy nylon topsheets keep snow from building up on the tops of the skis
  • PowerRide construction features poplar wood cores between sheets of 7000-series titanal aluminum and a triaxial weave of fiberglass for torsion and flex


  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
  • 115mm waist
  • Rockwell C48 steel edges
  • SweetRise 2 (full reverse camber profile with a tapered tip and tail)
  • ABS plastic and thermoplastic urethane sidewalls stand up to impacts and give the skis a lot of pop when you're coming out of turns
  • Tri-directional glass
  • The G3 Empress 115 telemark/randonee skis have P-Tex 2000 Electra bases that are very durable and absorb wax well for good glide
  • Durable steel edges stand up to regular use and dig into hard icy slopes

If there's already a foot of snow in your driveway, it's time to take out the G3 Empire 115 Ski. This fat, floaty ski, designed specifically for ladies or lighter riders, features a softer flex and rockered tip and tail that enables fast sweeping pow turns in steep terrain, open bowls, and tight trees. Thanks to the Empire 115's progressive SweetRise 2 camber profile, you're able to float on powder, be agile and nimble in deep snow and cruddy chops, and make slarvy turns in soft snow. And because of its 115mm waist the Empire 115 is able to hold a strong edge in hard pack so you're not all squirrely when you ski groomers to make your way to the lift, tram, or gondola.
Armed for battle with G3's PowerRide construction, this big mountain ripper comes stacked with an ABS sidewall for bomber construction and durability while its full tip-to-tail Poplar wood core offers superb strength, lightness, and pop. With two sheets of Titanal aluminum to cut down on chatter and vibration and two layers of Tri-directional glass for torsion and flex, the Empire 115 provides a smooth ride for straightlining and making big arcing turns down steep, wide, open terrain.
G3 gave this powder plank Rockwell C48 steel edges for sharpness and strength while a P-Tex 2000 Electra base supplies durability, speed, and wax absorption. So the next time you find yourself looking down upon a pristine field of steep pow hold on tight and enjoy the fast ride while pow hits you in the face.
