Not everyone has the chance to rule a snowy mountain kingdom, but the K2 Empress Ski is designed to give you the power to preside over the park, pipe, trees, and steeps. Monachs have to make a lot of tough decisions, like "How many peasants should I put in the stocks?" and "What ski should I ride today?" but the Empress makes the latter choice, at least, easy, with an aspen, paulownia, and bamboo Bioflex 2 core that's light, poppy and durable, especially when paired with K2's unique triaxial braided fiberglass laminate. It's also been built with K2's Freestyle Baseline construction, which matches the Jib Rocker profile (rockered tip and tail, flat underfoot) with the sidecut for smooth, consistent turning and predictable performance on booters, pipe hits, and groomer days.

The Empress' rounded tips and tails provide predictable turn initiation and easy release so you can scrub speed and vary your turn shapes like it's no big deal, and the tip and tail rocker allow for mellow switch riding and respectable powder performance. K2's Park Flex pattern makes the Empress softer in the tips and tails for easy buttering and smooth transitions, and the stiffer flat-cambered section underfoot lets you pop and pivot your way around the mountain. She's light and durable, too, thanks in part to the sidewall-free cap construction, and even has Z-clip skin attachments so you can slap on your K2 skins and hit the backcountry when your favorite stashes are tracked-out.

Here's what others have to say...

What different is between women and man skis to this model?
And second: is this good for Ski Track or this is only for mountain?

George, firstly, the main difference between women's and men's skis is usually the weight and size. Secondly, this is going to be a ski you'll want as your play ski as it is made for freestyle and park action. Can you use it for all mountain? Sure but you won't have the same radius or control of the ski.

Unanswered Question

Does the flat underfoot of this ski make it harder to ski on flat surfaces?
