Whatever the resort looks like.

The DPS Women's Nina F99 Foundation Ski sets a new standard for all-mountain versatility on mixed snow. With a waist width of 99mm, the Nina still floats through those few-and-far-between powder days, but it still transitions into those average ski days spent skiing on or off piste. Its rockered tip and tail provides additional float through powder, and camber underfoot ensures excellent edge control when you're carving down corduroy.

DPS' new Foundation construction employs the finest ingredients in order to perform on any terrain with ease. The core blends poppy poplar with shock-absorbing bamboo, while stiff carbon and flexible fiberglass laminates laid above and below the wood core ensures a light, responsive, and torsionally stiff feel all over the mountain. The World Cup race base ensures a speedy ride, while the textured top sheet prevents snow from building up and weighing you down.

Great Versatile Skis!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave these as a gift to my friend and she is thrilled! She is an advanced skier looking to get into the backcountry, and loves these for the resort as well. After her first day on these, she was gushing about how much she loves these skis. Light, poppy and forgiving yet good for carving and for speed. And great looking topsheet as well!!

Decent All mountain Ski

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I gave this as a gift to a friend and here is her review:

This is a solid all-mountain ski! These ride pretty smooth on groomers, edges handle well, minimal chatter. The Nina’s float decently in powder, but I’d go with a wider ski if you're looking for more optimal float with all-mountain capabilities. I used these my first winter getting back into skiing at resorts in Utah and they were a great ski for my first season back after a couple of years off. Not to mention, they are super slick and pretty!

Unanswered Question

Claimed weights of the Nina F99? Can't seem to find this anywhere and would like to know if anyone had weighed them as a comparison to the Pure3 and Hybrid T2 version of the Nina 99? Interested as a comparison to other similar skis in this class of all mountain/free ride as I'm not after another super light touring ski but wish to go lighter than my current resort ski (2013 Volkl Kiku 162cm). Appreciate any data anyone has.

These are my baby *heart emoji x 100*

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are a really great All-Mountain ski. They float in powder while still maintaining edge control on the groomers. I love that they are super flexible and lightweight. That all being said, they do chatter just a bit at high speeds on the groomers, and for those days, I would prefer a stiffer ski. I plan on transitioning these skis to a back-country setup and getting a more aggressive ski for in-bound. So, it'd say 3-4 star for all-mountain resort, but 5 star for backcountry.



And let's be honest- It's the most beautiful topsheet on the slopes.

Great all-around ski.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm regularly a snowboarder, and decided to get back onto skis. I'm glad I bought these. They have great edge control, to get rid of the awkward transition between sports. I've used them in a variety of conditions. They float really well, and provide great control. Great skis for all over the mountain.

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.
