Why We Like The Weston Summit Carbon Ski

Responsive, lightweight and damp, the trifecta for backcountry skis and an accurate way to describe the Weston Summit Carbon Ski. This backcountry touring ski uses a carbon fiber laminate to provide us with response, a paulownia core to keep things lightweight, and aluminum stringers to add a level of dampening to the ride.

Great touring ski

I really enjoy touring with this ski. For a 186cm and 105mm underfoot it is incredibly light. The camber profile is stiff which is great for the skin track and variable conditions while the tip and tail are playful. This ski loves to butter. Its super quick and forgiving in tight trees. If you are on the bootpack with the ski on your pack you don't even know its there. I am also a big fan of Westons custom Pomoca precut skins.

Awesome Backcountry 1 ski quiver

The Weston Summit Carbon has been my go-to backcountry ski for a few years now and that won’t be changing anytime soon. I absolutely love this ski most days! It is responsive, easy to ski, and a downright joy to ski in powder. With a 134mm shovel at a 186cm length I have not found a instance yet where this ski was not wide enough for the amount of snow I was skiing. At a 16.5m turn radius this ski is a dream in the trees when things get a little tight. With the early rise in the tips and tails this ski does seem to ski a touch shorter than the length. This is a great backcountry 1 ski quiver and at only 7 pounds 2 ounces for the pair is a relatively light ski to do it all, including the long missions. At my size (6’5” 210 lbs) this ski is not great for charging and since I choose to ski it exclusively in the backcountry I have not found this to be a problem. While it is a relatively soft ski, it makes up for it with how fun it is to ski. I often dial it back significantly in the backcountry which makes this ski a fantastic all-around ski for the backcountry. It initiates turns quite easily and is a hoot to slash and play around on. I would recommend this ski to anyone who needs a 1 ski quiver for the backcountry and enjoys a fun and playful ski.

I've had the last 4 years of this model and absolutely love it. Stiff enough underfoot to charge a bit and soft enough in the tip and tail to be playful. The 105 Midwaist is just enough to keep you afloat in the pow while remaining super light!

I ski tour on this ski nearly everyday. It’s the best all around touring ski for where I live. It is lightweight yet not overly forgiving. Due to its progressive camber profile, I think it skis slightly shorter than its measured length but does fine at speed. I really like that the shape and turn radius make short turns in trees effortless. It’s playfulness make it a superb ski for low angle powder skiing in mid-winter conditions. The z-clip skin system (with Pomoca skins) is a game-changer.

The Summit Carbon is the Leatherman of skis for me. I use mine for everything for everything from groomer cruising to getting face shots in the backcountry. Paired with a set of ATK free raiders this ski is light enough for long approaches, and able to hold its own in any terrain. These skis do particularly well in steep deep trees with its nimble shape and "narrow" underfoot width. That is balanced with strong edges and camber under foot to keep Summits preforming when the snow gets stiff.

My Go To Ski

Go to powder ski hands down. The 2023 season in Tahoe was full of mega deep days but it didn't matter if it was a dusting or double overhead there was no question on what skis I was grabbing. The summits are nimble and surfy in the trees but stiff and fast in big terrain. Great pop through the ski and feels super comfortable in the air. I plan on getting another pair for the backcountry for this coming season.

THE BEST ALL-ROUND SKI!

This is my favorite ski! I first got a pair of these for use in the backcountry and liked them so much I got another pair for the resort. I like the rocker-camber-rocker design because it can ski short for quick movements, or ski long while on edge when you need to drive through more choppy conditions. This ski can carve well on groomers, but also graces through powder, plays through tight trees, and even holds its own in the bumps. It's light enough for backcountry use but no so light that you sacrifice performance. The paulownia wood in the core gives this ski a very playful and responsive feel - I can choose whether I want to carve or schmear with a simple movement of my feet and knees. In the backcountry, I ski this in everything from easy pow in einter to icy ski mountaineering descents in sping and think it performs well in all conditions. Honestly, the Weston Summit really is the best all-round ski I have found!
