The aggressive diva's all-mountain, one-quiver-ski.

Designed to hold up to aggressive skiing in all types of terrain, the 4FRNT Women's Aretha Ski gives you a rush of adrenaline and butterflies in your stomach with its women-specific construction and top-notch performance. This tough but nimble ski machs down fresh cords, slashes pow turns in back bowls, and billy-goats down steep, techy terrain without even a flinch of hesitation.

  • The early-rise tip boosts float in soft snow, busts through crud, and helps with turn initiation
  • Classic camber features a traditional ski shape that gives the ski maximum performance in groomed conditions
  • Twin Tip shape incorporates an upturned tail that enables switch skiing and landing
  • Traditional Contact shape means that two contact points of the ski are at the tip and tail
  • Contour Core construction moves the weight of the core rearwards by 5cm to accommodate a woman's more centered skiing style (women tend to ski from their hips, which generates force down through their heels)
  • Contour Core construction means you can drive the true center of the core weight instead of constantly fighting from behind, while still being centered over the sidecut
  • Hi-Lite core incorporates a blend of poplar and beech wood to ensure a snappy, lightweight core with enough substance to drive wider skis in soft snow
  • Sandwich construction consists of layers of wood and fiberglass sandwiched together to create a high-performance ski
  • Sandwich construction offers incredible feel, more desirable flex characteristics, durability, and longevity
  • 100 and 104mm Waist options provide a versatile ski that serves as your one-ski-quiver in soft snow, crud, groomers, tight techy terrain, and steep lines
  • An asymmetrical sidecut supplies a directional shape that gives the ski a more consistent feel

amazing ski

The description of this ski is dead on. I purchased the 2012 model (same as 2013, just different graphics). Spent the 2013 winter in Jackson Hole with 40+ days under my belt and with every condition imaginable. I loved them from the first couple of turns on hard pack, until closing out the season with the spring time melt. The ski does it all. I am a level 8.5 skiier, 5,5", 135lb and skiied on the 168. I generally prefer skiing the bumps/off piste and was a little nervous about the 100 underfoot, but these babies were SO responsive to my every move. Though we didnt have the epic snow season I was hoping for, when we did have the powder days, the Aretha responded as I hoped for. They pretty much just float through the powder. If you are looking for a ski that does it all, this is a great choice. Not a lot of reviews out there on these skiis so I hope this helps anyone interested in purchasing the Aretha. my only complaint would be that the top sheet got a bit chipped on the sides, but that is only an appearance issue. In no way did that hinder the performance. I am hooked. Thanks 4frnt!
