With a fat waist, the DPS Women's Yvette F112 Foundation Ski is a powder ski at heart, but its unique shape and construction ensure excellent performance all over the mountain. This is the type of ski that gobbles all the morning powder, devours afternoon crud, and finishes the day off with smooth groomers. Its rockered tip and tail help keep the ski afloat in deep pow, while camber underfoot assures edge control over hardpack.
Unique to the Yvette Ski is DPS' new Foundation construction, which employs the finest ingredients in order to perform on any terrain with ease. The core blends poppy poplar with shock-absorbing bamboo, and stiff carbon and flexible fiberglass inserts work together to diversify the ski's performance on any terrain. The World Cup race base ensures a speedy ride, while the textured top sheet prevents snow from building up and weighing you down.

- Q & A
Great Ride for Resort Use
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I use these as my everyday ski at Alta/Snowbird. The ski handles every condition from firm to mixed to deep pow (where it really exceeds). It's playful and easy to maneuver for a 112 waist ski. Super fun ski to ride at the resorts, but not the best option if you’re wanting to take it out touring as well as they are decently heavy.
For reference - I'm about 5' 6" / 125 lbs, and a pretty experienced skier. I prefer to ride off of the groomers, and charge with an aggressive style and pace down the hill. For an alpine set up, I'd pair these with the Go Look Pivot, Marker Griffon, or Tyrolia Attack bindings.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought these skis for my mother for her birthday and she likes them but has a couple complaints, she had plans on using them for touring but changed her mind because they were too heavy and stiff. If you like a ski that you can charge with and not worry about chatter then these would be great.
