Why choose a longer ski?

  • Your ski experience level is advanced/expert
  • You like to ski fast and enjoy stability at high speeds
  • You like to ski aggressively
  • You are looking for a better flotation
  • You are heavier than average for your size
  • You think your current skis are too short
  • You ski on terrain with a lot of space

Why choose a shorter ski?

  • You are a beginner in alpine skiing
  • You prefer agility to flotation
  • You ski more slowly / you want to start turns at low speed
  • You do not ski aggressively
  • You are lighter than average for your height
  • You think your current skis are too long
  • You ski on narrow terrain


We suggest:

Pionnier 104 | Approximately the height of the person + a few cm
Explo 96 | About the size of the person and a few cm less
Zigzag 92 | About the skier's height

  • camber 3P : Engaging and maneuverable ski at low speeds - a plus for low angle terrain.
  • Semi-cap sidewall : Semi-cap sidewall: This construction offers the same durability and edge retention as the standard or "sandwich" construction, but with less weight and better impact resistance. Unlike other manufacturers, our semi-cap construction includes a full-length sidewall for added protection. protection.
  • Climbing tail : The tail of our skis is designed to hold your skins in place. Plus, it can be notched for a better fit with your skin clip. So you can venture out with confidence, even in the most challenging conditions.

Inside your skis.

The poplar wood cores used in our skis come from sustainable forests in the Bas-Saint-Laurent, located less than 100 km from the manufacturing plant. This means that cutting is done with the greatest respect for the environment. Selective cutting is done to improve forest regeneration. Finally, poplar makes the skis lighter and more resistant.

The birch reinforcement plate of the PIONNIER 104 adds extra strength under the boot while minimizing the associated weight addition. The birch allows the PIONNIER to be safe while remaining light and playful.

Our topsheet is 50% biobased. Biobased materials are made from renewable organic material. In addition, it contains 20% recycled materials and is made with castor oil. This makes our skis extremely durable and waterproof, which guarantees the longevity of our products.

Although fiberglass is not as rigid as carbon fiber, it is stronger. Strength is the ability of a fiber to not break under the weight of a load. That's why this fiber is the ideal choice when it comes to adding strength and durability to skis.

Carbon fiber has the perfect mechanical properties for building high-end skis. It is also well suited for touring skis because of its excellent
lightness/stiffness ratio. Carbon makes the ski light on the way up, but strong on the way down.

We use Entropy Resins' Super Sap epoxy in all our skis. This epoxy is biobased, which means that the materials used to make it are derived from renewable organic materials. In addition, this epoxy offers the same performance as traditional resins, but with less environmental impact.
