You're the kinda gal that rips the whole mountain, exploring every nook and cranny in search of fresh goods, even if it means side stepping rocks and bootpacking peaks. Coalition Snow skis are made by women, for women, and the Abyss Ski is destined for greatness, deep powder, and steep lines. Modeled after the award-winning SOS, this stable fat ski is ready to romp through the soft stuff, with a generous 114mm waist underfoot that conquers even the deepest of your dreams. Rocker in the tip and tail encourage that floaty feeling, while also letting you ski the crud when you've reached the day's end and the snow isn't quite as untouched. The progressive multi-radius sidecut works best through medium to long arcing turns, with 2mm of camber underfoot helping you hold an edge through each transition. A stiff flex really lets you drive this stick down steep lines at speed—or take it on-piste—while the birch core provides lightweight energy that keeps you coming back for more, and more, and more.

Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preffered style of skiing. For example, an expert skier on in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
