Ski Review 2022/2023: Ladies High Performance

Attention sporty skiers: Here come the new High Perfomance models for women. They combine the best features of slalom and giant slalom skis, but are more relaxed to ski than the aggressive race models. If you have the necessary stamina, technique and experience, you will experience skiing fun at the highest level with these skis. The new Ladies High Performance models for the 2022/2023 season were again put to the test at the WorldSkitest. We took part and will now introduce you to the winners.

Perfect for sporty carving turns

In the High Performance category you will find technically high-quality and extremely versatile skis for fast-paced downhill runs with medium radii. They are the ideal alternative for sporty female skiers who find GS models too fast and SL models too aggressive. Since the high-performance skis nevertheless require a certain amount of strength, stamina and skill, less experienced female skiers should rather look in the all-round category.

At the WorldSkitest 2022, the new models of the best-known ski brands were tested. We were also involved once again and tested the women's models in Silvretta Montafon alongside ski pros such as Katharina Liensberger, Ricarda Haaser and Eva Maria Brem. The results show just how high the quality of these high performers is. As many as five models received the test grade "excellent".
